Metal Building Outlet supplied this prefabricated metal building in Gormania, West Virginia, in November of 2019.
Standing 48’x25’x16’ in size, the energy-efficient steel building is in use as a shop, and it features an open, clear-span design that makes the most of usable floor space. High overhead clearance enhances functionality even further, while a rugged Galvalume roof with a modest 1:12 pitch protects the interior of the workshop from above.
The metal building features an insulation package, with layers of R-19 fiberglass insulation installed in its roof and walls. The insulation package brings with it a number of key benefits, including lower energy bills, improved comfort and better sound control. The shop also has (3) framed openings enhancing accessibility, among them (1) 3’4”x7’2” door opening and (2) 12’x12’ overhead door openings.
Other features included out of respect for the climate of Gormania and the building code regulations applicable in the area include a 110-mph wind speed rating and a 45-pound snow load. Situated along the North Branch Potomac River, Gormania is part of northern West Virginia’s Grant County. The unincorporated community is located just outside Gorman and about 67 miles southeast of Morgantown.
