Mar Lan Construction was selected early in the design process for this multi-building project. The scope involved the supply and erection of five pre-engineered metal buildings. The buildings were somewhat complicated and called for long overhangs or soffits supported by custom structural steel tapered I-beams. This required teaming the pre-engineered building designers with a conventional structural designer to collaborate and solve all the issues involved in combining the two systems.

The project consisted of five different use buildings — everything from administration office space to simple truck storage. All of the buildings incorporated the tapered exposed structural steel supported overhangs.
