An Insulated, Crane-Ready Colorado Commercial & Office Space
Sunward Steel Buildings was the proud manufacturer and supplier of this prefabricated steel building in Milliken, Colorado, in November of 2014.
Now serving double-duty as a commercial/office space for Pete Martin Drilling, a drilling contractor, the striking, insulated steel building stands 80’x122’x22’ in size and offers considerable curb appeal, thanks to a Beige exterior and natural stone veneer siding. Red trim and a rugged Red metal roof with a 2:12 pitch further enhance the building’s aesthetic appeal, with the latter offering considerable protection against corrosion and the Colorado elements.
The commercial and office space features premium-quality steel construction, complete with liner panels within the walls that protect the property’s insulation package. Within its roof, the building contains R19 insulation, while high R-value, R-38 insulation sits within the structure’s walls. In addition to maximizing interior comfort for workers, regardless of season, the insulation package keeps energy bills associated with the business low while providing an additional level of sound protection.
