Steel Building in Kelso, Washington

Metal Building Outlet sourced this pre-engineered steel building on behalf of a customer in Kelso, Washington, in January of 2020.

Rugged, comfortable and insulated, the Saddle Tan-colored building is ideal for life in the Pacific Northwest, and when erect, it stands 40’x60’x16’ in size. Undergoing use as a shop, the building combines rugged durability with impressive energy efficiency, and it has a roof comprised of heavy-duty Galvalume steel paneling sitting overhead that offers a slight 1:12 pitch.

Offering easy access inside the metal shop are (3) framed openings, which include (1) 3070 walk door opening, (1) 12’x14’ overhead door opening harboring (1) 12’x14’ overhead door, and (1) 10’x10’’ opening enclosing (1) 10’x10’ door.

Installed within the roof of the prefabricated workshop is a layer of R-13 insulation, while another layer of R-10 fiberglass insulation sits within the shop’s walls. The insulation lowers the building’s energy expenses, and it also helps create more accommodating work environment. Other notable climate-related project characteristics include a 30-pound snow load and a 115-mph wind speed rating.

Located in southwestern Washington state, the city of Kelso is part of Cowlitz County and the Longview, Washington, metro area. It sits near the base of Mount St. Helens, roughly 125 miles south of Seattle.
