B&G Machine Shop
The B&G Machine project included the supply and erect of a 5,700 SF pre-engineered metal building, in-filling the space between two existing tilt-up buildings south of down town Seattle. With the use of flexible flashings, we were able to account for building deflection and create a long lasting weather tight connection. The building was designed for the installation of two 15 ton bridge cranes and two 5 ton jib cranes that are used to repair large diesel engines. Despite being a semi-heated space, the City of Seattle required R-46 insulation which was accomplished by using a Banded Liner System, increasing purlin depth and using Extra-Tall roof panel clips to account for the 15” of insulation. Several innovative materials were used for this project including 2” insulated wall panels with Tuff-Cast finish and (14) self-curbing Sunlite Strips with prismatic domes that diffuse natural sunlight and eliminate hotspots.
