Zoom Zoom Storage, Markham, Ontario, Canada

Advance Storage Systems Inc. built a two-story, 56,700-square-foot facility supplied by American Buildings Co. (ABC) for Zoom Zoom Storage. The two stories are 10-foot by 10-foot structures with wider 30-foot spans incorporated at the office and loading areas. The exteriors have stucco architectural features and hidden fastener siding. The roof features American Building's Galvalume Standing Seam II roof panels. Mitered checker plate corners were used to widen the corridor turn radii and checker plate corners were utilized throughout. A flush ceiling system was installed to complete the look.

The storage facility has a climate-controlled interior, and drive-up units with heating and air conditioning. The drive-up buildings are heated by in-floor radiant heating. Metal was specified to exemplify the Zoom Zoom brand of white and red stripping and for its cost effectiveness. Advance Storage Systems received first place in the 2014 ABC Excellence in Design Awards in the selfstorage category.
