Marlboro Ridge Equestrian Center, Upper Marlboro, Md.

Dimitry Resnik, PE, of Timber Tech Engineering Inc., says metal is a common roofing and wall panel material used in post-frame construction, and it works well for Marlboro Ridge Equestrian Center. The equestrian center is 192 feet long, 38 feet wide and 30 feet high with a finished apartment for a full-time groundskeeper on the second floor. The barn has 22 stalls, a large tack room, office, laundry, three restrooms, hay storage, feed rooms and stand-alone utility room.

Fuog/InterBuild Inc. installed 160 squares of McElroy Metal Inc.’s Max-Rib G100 SP metal panels in Evergreen on the roof and 70 squares of McElroy Metal’s Max-Rib G100 SP in Surrey Beige for the walls. The 9,821-square-foot post-frame facility is sided with a combination of Max-Rib panels, HardiPlank lap siding and some brick accents. It is highlighted by five cupolas constructed on-site. The project was completed in April 2016. The National Frame Building Association named the Marlboro Ridge Equestrian Center its 2016 Building of the Year in the category for Horse Barns greater than 5,000 square feet.
