Croell’s 16,429-square-foot concrete production facility is comprised of five connected metal building systems supplied by Sukup Manufacturing Co. The buildings were designed individually, but some share endwalls. Tall structural members were field-spliced, while others had special connections for attaching a mezzanine.
The facility is entirely clad with metal. The structures have standing seam roof systems and corrugated metal wall panels. For roofs, Croell, which provided its own general contracting, erection and installation services for the project, installed 16,443 square feet of Sukup’s 24-gauge CXP standing seam roof system in Bright Red.
For walls, Croell installed 32,450 square feet of Sukup’s 26-gauge MSP corrugated metal walls panels in Saddle Tan. Bright Red trim creates accents in the design and completes a color palette that matches other Croell facilities.
On interiors of building walls and ceilings, Croell installed 48,893 square feet of Sukup’s 29-gauge MIP metal liner panels in Polar White. To insulate the roofs and walls, Croell installed L&L Insulation and Supply Co.’s L&L Saver System, which is made by Thermal Design Inc.
Additionally, the project utilized 10 preassembled, steel, walkthrough doors, a glass storefront door and five preassembled, steel-framed, single-hung windows, all of which were supplied by Global Building Products.
