New Warehouse and Sorage Facility, Oxford, Michigan
RB Construction Company was chosen to build a pre-engineered structural steel building shell and addition, pre-finished metal siding, single slopped roof and related structural components for a new 16,300 square foot storage and warehouse at Oxford Forge in Oxford, Michigan. The new facility is composed of 14,400 square foot free standing warehouse storage area and a 1,900 square foot bump out addition. The prefabricated steel warehouse structure features open front, high bays with exposed structural steel construction. As suggested by RB Construction Company, clear lucent panels were added along the back wall to allow for natural light infiltration, illuminating storage space, requiring less electric lighting and providing a safer work environment. The bump out addition area houses mechanical equipment used for warehouse operations. Both structures exterior components are composed of 26 gauge, standing seam pre-finished meal roof panels, gutters and downspouts.
