Metal Building with Lean-to in Aztec, New Mexico

Metal Building Outlet sourced this metal building and (2) accompanying steel lean-tos for a customer in Aztec, New Mexico, in March of 2021.

Undergoing miscellaneous usage, the (3) versatile, low-maintenance metal buildings all have clear spans and offer unmatched strength and durability, standing strong in the face of extreme temperatures, variable weather patterns and other construction hazards. The main metal building is 30’x40’x14’ in size once erect, while the (2) attached lean-tos are each 12’x40’x12’.

Overhead, the main building sports a hardwearing metal gable roof with a 2:12 pitch, while both lean-tos have single-slope roofs with 1:12 pitches providing protection from above. All (3) roofs have long-lasting paint.

Distributed among the (3) buildings are (5) framed door and window openings. There are (2) 3070 openings enclosing (2) 20-gauge 3070 insulated commercial walk doors with lever locks, (1) 14’x12’ overhead door opening housing (1) Amarr Series 2432 insulated overhead sectional door with a manual lift, and (2) 3030 window openings that let natural sunlight inside.

The main building also contains roof and wall insulation that lowers energy bills and enhances interior comfort. In the roof is a 6” layer of R019 insulation, while the metal building’s walls contain a 4” layer of R-13 insulation.

All (3) steel structures also have several climate-related accommodations that keep them compliant with building codes in place in Aztec, including 115-mph wind speed ratings and 21-psf snow loads.
