2015 Featured Agriculture Building of the Year

This is a great example of the best of post-frame for agriculture. Features such as a large hydraulic door, overhead doors, slide-door, side-light, acoustic ceiling liner combined with large and small shop areas and cold storage combine to create an extremely versatile building.

Three different large door styles truly allow for a building with many uses. The hydraulic door and a large overhead door allow for easy drive through access to the lined and insulated shop. A slide door gives the same large opening to the cold storage area off of the shop.

Post frame easily allowed for the flexibility to have different building section heights.
