Building Specifications

Like all of Sunward Steel’s prefabricated metal buildings, this one was relatively simple and easy to construct, as all building components arrived at the build site in carefully labeled packages to streamline and shorten the erection process. Once erect, the metal building stands 40’x60’x14’ in size, and it features a bright Blue exterior that offers undeniable curb appeal.

Overhead, a Galvalume steel roof with a 2:12 pitch and custom Black trim further enhances the structure’s aesthetic appeal while protecting its interior against damage and the elements. Additional customizations include (10) framed openings, among them (3) overhead openings enclosing (3) overhead doors, (1) 3070 opening enclosing (1) 3070 door, and (6) 5’8” skylights that let plenty of natural sunlight stream inside.

To enhance durability with respect for the surrounding landscape and climate while ensuring adherence to local building codes, engineers added an 80-mph wind speed rating and a 25-pound snow load at the time of construction.
