Municipal Building in Forest Grove, Oregon

Sunward Steel Buildings, Inc., was pleased to fabricate and supply this pre-engineered steel building on behalf of a client in Forest Grove, Oregon, in March of 1997.

Currently, the hardwearing, easy-to-maintain metal building undergoes municipal use by the City of Forest Grove, a bedroom community of Portland, Oregon, that is home to Pacific University. Now functioning as a storage space for equipment used by the city’s Light & Power Department, the building houses small equipment in one section and larger equipment in another. It also boasts an open bay that grants city workers easy and fast access to everything they need to keep the city running smoothly.
