Functioning as a shop, the metal building features top-quality steel construction, resulting in unsurpassed structural integrity. Once raised, it stands 40’x60’x16’ in size, boasting high overhead clearance and a clear-span design that clears up as much floor space as possible by eliminating unnecessary obstructions.

Ash Gray in color, the shop offers considerable curb appeal, while a robust and corrosion-resistant Galvalume roof with a 2:12 pitch provides reliable protection from above. Making the shop accessible and sunny for users are (4) framed openings, among them (1) 14’x14’ opening, (1) 3070 walk door opening and (2) 3030 window openings.

A high-performance insulation package is also among the shop’s notable features. In its roof, it has a layer of high R-value, R-35 insulation, while a layer of R-25 fiberglass insulation sits within the walls. In addition to helping improve sound control, the insulation allows for a more comfortable interior environment while helping keep energy bills low.
