Pre-engineered Steel Building in Macedonia, Iowa

Metal Building Outlet supplied the base-building frame package for this pre-engineered steel building in Macedonia, Iowa, in early July of 2015.

Now used as a shop area by the building owner, the durable, highly functional metal building is crafted from premium-grade components from Nucor Building Systems and stands 60’x60’x14’ in size. Set atop of the steel building is a rugged, corrosion-resistant Galvalume metal roof with a 1:12 roof pitch.

In consideration of the typical climate and weather patterns characteristic of Macedonia, a wind speed of 115 mph and a snow load of 25 lbs. were included in the building at the time of construction. Iowa engineer-stamped drawings and Iowa engineer-stamped anchor bolt plans were also supplied by Metal Building Outlet as part of this project.

A small, historic city in western Iowa’s Pottawattamie County, the city of Macedonia sits about 28 miles outside the industrial city of Council Bluffs and about 116 miles from the Iowa State Capitol in Des Moines.
