Project Specifications

We recently undertook a furnishing and erection project with Blackwood Farms, a farm in Tremont, Pennsylvania, that processes and manufactures Exceptional Quality (EQ) Biosolids Derived Materials to create high-quality soil amendment projects.

Rose Metal Buildings strove to erect a biosolids processing facility that would support farming and agricultural practices. The building stands at 104,425 square feet and includes three metal structures — a covered storage building, mixing building and curing building for all the client’s processing and manufacturing needs.

Project specifications for the three buildings include:

  • Covered storage building: 150 feet wide by 500 feet long by 25 feet eave height
  • Mixing building: 100 feet wide by 125 feet long by 34 feet eave height
  • Curing building: 100 feet wide by 150 feet long by 22 feet eave height



Materials and Project Highlights

We assemble our metal buildings using the most durable, long-lasting materials geared toward our clients’ individualized needs. Through the Blackwood Farms enterprise, we furnished and erected a processing facility that combined three separate metal buildings with each building having its own specialized materials and features.


Covered Storage Building

Our team of experts erected the covered storage building for Blackwood Farms using uninsulated galvanized steel that provides an impressive 150-foot clear span. Galvanized steel coatings offer many advantages for metal structures, such as damage resistance, low maintenance requirements, and a long life span. The building also foregoes wall sheeting, allowing for an open-air design.


Mixing Building

The mixing building is sheeted using a 26-gauge exposed fastener wall system with 4-foot-high translucent wall panels installed above, around the full perimeter of the building. Translucent wall panels are designed to diffuse light with reduced glare, shading and ultraviolet (UV)-blocking properties.

This gabled symmetrical mixing building features a 28-gauge deck attached to the structure’s purlins with 3″ high Z support bars for extra foundational stability, 4″ of rigid insulation board for noise dampening, heat and moisture resistance and a standing seam roof with a ½:12-foot slope.


Curing Building

Like the mixing building, the farm’s curing building features 4-inch-high translucent wall panels for better glare resistance and natural lighting. We also implemented a 26-gauge exposed fastener roof and wall system optimized for energy efficiency and a lasting life span.

Like the previous structures, the curing building features a gabled symmetrical design with a½:12 roof slope.


Building Use

Rose Metal Buildings focused on providing these three separate agricultural buildings to support the farm’s mixing, curing, and storing practices. As our client’s metal building supplier and erector, our team delivered by furnishing and assembling these biosolid processing buildings with customized features and building materials that will last for decades to come.
