Minto Group Inc., owner and design-builder for its own project, designed Safe Harbor Pier 77 marina with a metal building system featuring a metal roof, metal walls and multiple canopies. The 28,500-square-foot building has a 58-foot eave. It stores 128 boats to 42 feet long and 25,000 pounds each. The marina also has 55 wet slips for boats to 50 feet.

Steel Worx Solutions LLC erected Ideal Steel’s metal building system and installed the panels. Mack David Buildings, consultant for the project, designed the exterior panels. For the roof and walls, 24-gauge PBR metal panels were used. Steelworx also fabricated trim on-site. All secondary framing is galvanized steel so it will withstand long-term service in the saltwater environment.
