The 65’ 9” x 203’ 9” project, using a metal
building system by Metallic Building Company, incorporated reverse haunch galvanized frames, with girts attached to the outer flange of reversed haunch columns.
The $500,000-plus project utilized a pre-engineered metal building with insulated
standing seam roof panels because of the superior weathertighness and R-values up to 39.5. The insulated ESP 250 wall panels (R-value 19.9) were chosen for their flat architectural appearance. A cool roof color, Bone White, was selected for the Insulated

A separate building for mechanical functions and fleet repair has a mezzanine with a pan roof and patio area with heat and a summer misting system.
The single-slope, municipal project has been
submitted for LEED Silver certification.
