Industrial Buildings & Canopies

Milling Plant, Pima County, AZ

10,000 Square Feet
86'-0" Low Eave, 25-Ton Crane


Industrial plants need to expand while maintaining production schedules and output. The machinery required is often too
large to assemble after the protective building envelope is installed. Steadfast has developed techniques to allow for the safe installation of metal buildings around industrial equipment - often in very tight quarters.

Recycling Center, Tucson, AZ


52,000 Square Feet and mixed 37' & 39' Low Eave Heights


Recycling plants have specific process driven design requirements, including a large, 142' wide clear span tipping area and conveyor systems that require asymmetrical intermediate column placements with carefully coordinated column base plate recesses and elevations above finish floor so as not to interfere with the extensive network of conveyor belts and sorting machinery. On this project, wall light transmitting panels were utilized to reduce the amount of electrical lighting required for day time operations.

Krebs Engineering, Tucson, AZ

5m400 Square Feet

42' Low Eave, 20-Ton Crane


Industrial facilities need metal building work of all sizes. Sometimes it is a simple support structure with protective roof to support an exterior crane for material handling. No Bells or whistles, just a canopy to improve process efficiency.

Doubletree Paper Mill, Gila Bend, AZ


15,000 Square Feet
40' Low Eave Height and Skirt Wall


Industrial processing equipment is often one of the biggest investments for production facilities, and protecting these long term assets is critical to main-taining the required ROI for the plant. This canopy was added to the facility after the main tanks and equipment were installed. Careful coordination of both the canopy design and the installation was critical to project success. Once completed, this canopy included several skirt walls to further protect the machinery from the weather and desert sun.

Desert Lumber Manufacturing Facility, North Las Vegas, NV


63,000 Square Feet
30' Low Eave Height and 180' Clear Span


This owner chose to expand plant capacity with a canopy to create shelter for new truss manufacturing equipment. This saved the expense of a complete new building structure. By opting for the clear-span design, they maximized their ability to change out their equipment and storage needs over time, without interference from internal columns. To ensure the safety of our crews during erection of this relatively wide clear span, we assembled the rafters in sections on the ground, and then utilized cranes to place each section on top of the columns. This process also saved erection time on the project.
