Vanguard National Trailer Manufacturing & Warehouse
Large PEMB Manufacturing Plant with Attached Office Building
Standing at 355,000 sf, this custom manufacturing plant is a hybrid design that integrates a Pre Engineered Metal Building with a conventional roofing system and bar joist structure. It is a combination of three structures: a gable design manufacturing & warehouse, a front sidewall lean-to, and a single slope attached office. Kirby provided load to frames and roof support members to accommodate the underhung cranes. The wall between the warehouse and office is open for a fire wall provided by others.
The trailer storage yard is approximately 1.5 million square feet, and will allow over 1200 trailers to be parked at one time. The project was completed in a little less than a year after breaking ground.
