Metal Building in Centralia, Kansas

When a buyer in Centralia, Kansas, needed a versatile, climate-controlled metal shop with specific customizations, he turned to Metal Building Outlet, which supplied this prefabricated steel building kit in December 2022.

Bright, spacious and open, the Ash Grey metal shop building with Steel Gray trim has a wide clear span and high ceilings that create plenty of space for housing vehicles, supplies and other goods. The owner needed the shop to be highly energy-efficient, and Metal Building Outlet equipped this building with high R-value roof and wall insulation to accomplish this.

In the roof, the shop has an R-35 Energy Saver insulation system, which lowers heating and cooling costs by making the structure resistant to heat flow. The walls, meanwhile, contain R-25 Energy Saver insulation blankets. Additional shop customizations include several windows that let natural sunshine in and gutters and downspouts along both side walls, which help keep the shop dry and watertight.
