Metal Buildings for Refrigerated Warehouses

Metal Buildings for Refrigerated Warehouses

Metal buildings have many uses one of which is refrigerated warehouses. Late in 2009  we completed a metal building for refrigerated warehousing at a food processing plant in Leesburg Florida.

The insulation for the refrigeration units was provided by six inch thick insulated metal panels. There was an existing steel bar joist roof structure that was to be removed and a new steel bar joist roof system installed in place of the old. The new roof needed to be raised to accommodate the new ceiling mounted refrigeration units.

This meant that the entire supporting structure, the columns and beams upon which the old roof structure rested had to raised to meet the new required ceiling height.

This plant was a twenty four hour a day, seven day a week and 365 days a year operation. The additional head room height was need not only for the  large refrigeration units but for the forklifts and operators as well. So our job was to get this project underway and completed on time while men and machine were operating below the work areas.This sometimes created work stop orders that slowed the progress. The slowed progress created extended work times to maintain the projected project completion time.

Next to refrigerated area of the plant was a non refrigerated area the openings through which the forklifts passed were equipped with automatic, high speed, overhead, insulated doors.

The challenged provided by this project was a two headed monster finish the job on time and without injury. Not easy under the circumstances.

Prefabricated, pre-engineered steel buildings. There are several things to consider when deciding on a building. Choosing the right materials, the right sizes and the right dimensions are no small task, it’s also very important to choose the right manufacturer. Some of things you will need to consider include safety, cost efficiency, time and durability. You will want to choose a reputable builder and quality materials. By using this “concept for building” you will get a modern, safe, economical and quick solution for your building needs. These days building with steel is gaining popularity in many areas. Prefab steel structures are suitable for a number of purposes such as aircraft  hangars, storage areas, garages, workshops and even churches. They also offer one of the best, safest, and most durable solutions for agricultural buildings and horse riding arenas. Continue reading

Steel Building Systems A Fast Construction Method

A Steel Building System Is a Fast Construction Method

A steel building systems is a fast construction method; this project consisted of three pre-engineered, manufactured metal building systems for a plant nursery in Miami, Florida. Why does this “concept for building” give excellent value? Because with this building concept you not only get fast track construction, you get fast designs, unsupported clear spans (no intermediate columns) and a very long useful life  standing seam metal roofs, more than one floor level, all in a fast track building package.

We Can Make Your Building Look Like a Regular Block and Stucco Building

You don’t like the metal siding look. No problem, we’ll give you a manufactured metal building using a steel building frame, standing seam metal roof, normal every day exterior walls in block and stucco, brick or insulated metal panels. Using these materials for your new, church, school, refrigerated warehouse, or other facility provides the customer with a building that is structurally sound and pleasing to view, yet provides a fast track design and fast construction method.
