Steel Shop, Garage & Storage in Valatie, New York

Supplied in February 2021 for a business owner in Valatie, New York, this pre-engineered Sunward Steel building effectively combines form, function and resilience.

The client envisioned a space that could serve triple-duty as a shop, storage and maintenance area for company vehicles, and this clear-span steel shop has an open, unobstructed interior that frees up plenty of space for storing or working on cars and trucks. Tailored to meet the buyer’s needs and engineered to comply with local building regulations, the structure has heavy wind and snow loads and robust construction that holds its own against the harshest of weather conditions.

The steel building’s exterior is a vibrant Rustic Red, and Hunter Green trim adds an aesthetic touch, giving the building nice street appeal. Innovative and multifunctional, the building looks similar to a traditional barn but offers the durability and ease-of-customization that only pre-engineered steel construction can offer.

Building Specifications

Standing 30’x30’x11’, the metal shop, garage and storage building boasts superior strength and durability thanks to the inclusion of hardy, 26-gauge HiRib roof and wall paneling. The building’s gable roof has a 4:12 pitch that allows rain and snow to slide off easily, helping prevent leaks and water damage, and (3) door openings make it easy to move vehicles and supplies in and out.

The steel shop has (2) 9’x10’ overhead garage doors and (1) 3070 walk door. Other notable customizations include a high, 120-mph wind speed rating and a 40-psf roof snow load, which keep the shop compliant with building codes while boosting overall durability.
