Self-Storage Building in Woolwich, ME
Sunward Steel Buildings, Inc. had the honor of fabricating and supplying these (2) pre-engineered steel buildings on behalf of a customer in Wiscasset, Maine, in November of 2016.
Currently, they function as Midcoast Properties’ Wiscasset Self-Storage Center, a metal mini storage facility that offers rentable storage and warehouse space. The storage facility boasts both climate-controlled and non-climate-controlled rentable units in a variety of different sizes, accommodating a broad range of storage and space needs for residents of Wiscasset and the surrounding coastal Maine region.
Steel Self-Storage Facility Specifications
Rugged, durable and designed to withstand rain, snow, pests, strong winds and other common Maine construction concerns, the metal mini storage building features high-end steel construction and stands 12’x144’x9.5’ in size. Divided into smaller, drive-up storage units, the facility offers indoor as well as outdoor storage opportunities for renters, with those renting indoor spaces reaping the benefits that come with having a rugged, hardwearing Galvalume metal roof overhead.
Distributed throughout the steel mini storage center are (36) framed openings ranging in terms of size and purpose. Featured are (7) 3’x7’ mini storage door openings equipped with (7) 3’x7’ mini storage doors, (11) 8’x7’ framed openings, each enclosing one of (11) 8’x7’ metal mini storage doors, and (18) 6’x7’ framed openings, each of which houses one of (18) 6’x7’ mini storage doors.
The storage facility’s climate-controlled areas, meanwhile, feature 6” of insulation in the roof and walls, which regulates the temperature of stored goods while lowering energy bills associated with the storage business. A 100-mph wind speed rating and a high, 54-psf snow load serve as additional accommodations made in consideration of the building codes in place in Wiscasset and the variable weather and climate characteristics of the area.
A “Recession-Proof” Industry
Financial analysts have repeatedly referred to the self-storage industry as “recession proof,” meaning that business within it stays relatively consistent even during economic downtimes. Steel self-storage buildings such as this one often provide steady streams of revenue for their owners, most of whom collect monthly rent from clients while maintaining low maintenance and ownership costs.
A small, scenic town tucked within eastern Maine’s Lincoln County, Wiscasset is a popular destination among travelers who come to view the architecture, sample Maine lobster and otherwise enjoy a quintessentially New England experience. The community sits about 13 miles north of Boothbay Harbor and roughly 10 miles northeast of Bath.
