Metal Building on the Caribbean Island of St. Maarten

Metal Building Outlet supplied this prefabricated metal building on the Caribbean island of St. Maarten in February of 2015.

Now used as a medical clinic, the building is 25’x40’x11.5’ in size and is covered by a durable galvalume roof with a 1:12 roof pitch. Inside are a total of (4) framed openings, including (1) that houses a 20-gauge 3070 walk door, (1) 8’x8’ framed opening and (2) 3030 doors.

Due to St. Maarten’s island location in the Caribbean Sea, the steel building is engineered with a high wind speed of 170 mph.

Part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, St. Maarten occupies one-half of a Caribbean island, the other being St. Martin, an overseas collectivity of France. Known for its stunning scenery, crystal-clear waters and broad recreational opportunities, St. Maarten is a popular tourist and cruise ship destination.
