Keeping the warehouse’s heating and cooling bills low and its users comfortable throughout the year is a high R-value insulation system. The warehouse roof contains an R-38 Energy Saver insulation system, while the walls of the steel building hold an R-25 Energy Saver system. The walls also contain 1” thermal blocks, which help create a continuous insulation system and boost insulation performance, resulting in thousands of dollars in energy savings over time.
Other notable features and customizations include gutters and downspouts along the warehouse’s low side wall, which keep rain or snow from pooling on top of the building or near its foundation. An 8-pound roof collateral load is another upgrade that supports the weight of sprinklers or other infrastructure hung from the warehouse ceiling.
The metal warehouse also features snowdrift engineering along its end walls due to its parapet design and spandrel beams along its end walls and side return. A 115-mph wind speed rating and a 30-psf roof snow load are additional customizations made in line with local building codes.
