Light Gauge Steel Building in Cochise, Arizona

Blue White Cold Formed Building

Metal Building Outlet supplied this prefabricated cold-formed steel building for a customer in Cochise, Arizona.

Purchased to serve as a backyard shop, garage and workspace, the building features cold form construction, making it lighter and easier to assemble than traditional steel construction. This particular cold form building required a high degree of versatility to meet the owner’s needs and has numerous customizations as a result.

This steel shop and garage features a heavy-duty steel roof overhead. Among its notable features is a 10′ inset bay, which creates a covered, roof-only outdoor workspace that offers shade and protection from the elements. The building has a Polar White exterior and complementing Ocean Blue trim, enhancing its exterior appeal and blending well with the surrounding landscape. It features sturdy, 26-gauge steel construction, and it also boasts a Sol-R Eclipse eco-foil vapor retardant in the roof that amplifies his lights, creating a well-lit workspace and a light, bright interior.

This building features several framed door openings offering access inside. It also features several open bays, including two along the sidewalls and one along an end wall. The steel shop and garage building also meets engineering codes currently in place in the unincorporated community of Cochise and surrounding Cochise County.

Cold Form Building Benefits

In addition to being lighter and easier to assemble than traditional prefab. steel buildings, cold formed steel buildings are often more affordable, and particularly when you factor in costs associated with erection and scrap disposal. Cold form buildings are also noncombustible, meaning they offer a high level of fire resistance, and they don’t typically require the use of fancy or expensive tools to raise them. Finally, the turn and shipping times associated with cold form steel buildings are often much faster than those associated with standard pre-engineered steel buildings.
