The third addition to Keating Tractor and Equipment Inc.'s operations facility utilizing Behlen Building Systems' products added 12,300 square feet to the existing 21,000 square feet. The building, completed in April 2013, was erected on top of the existing offices and showroom. The project included a Behlen pre-engineered building with columns on the exterior, single-slope roof with parapets, exterior insulation finishing system (EIFS) with rock finishes on two sides, and Behlen's ADP1 metal wall panels on the backside. Additionally, concrete mezzanines were constructed on the second floor and an entry tower was built. The facility also uses Bay Insulation Co.'s OptiLiner Banded Liner System insulation.
