Metal Crane Building in Lyons, Colorado

Metal Building Outlet supplied this pre-engineered metal building for a customer in Lyons, Colorado, in early July of 2015.

Now a crane building, the structure stands 69.4’x72’x19.6’ in size and is crafted from premium-quality steel components. Its roof is made of rugged, corrosion-resistant Galvalume metal and has a 1:12 roof pitch. Inside the durable, low-maintenance structure are (14) framed openings varying in size and purpose. These include (2) 3070 openings housing (2) 3070 steel walk doors with 20-gauge panic hardware, (10) 3’x5’4” wall-light windows, (1) custom framed opening with trim and a 59’8”x2’1” t-shaped opening over the top and (1) additional 15’x16’x7/8” opening enclosing (2) double-swinging doors. The last opening also features (2) jambs and a full wrap.

To reduce energy costs associated with the building, high R-value, R-30 insulation is installed within the building’s roof, while R-19 metal building insulation can be found in the walls. A high wind speed of 166 mph and a snow load of 30 lbs. serve as additional project features, and were included to enhance durability given the typical climate of Lyons.

A statutory town set within Boulder County, Lyons is located about 21 miles outside Estes Park and 12 miles outside Longmont.
