Metal building houses brewery
Pardi Partnership Architects utilized a framework of
a typical industrial metal building system and created custom
design elements with brick, metal, wood paneling and glazing on the
exterior for Three Heads Brewing in Rochester, N.Y. The design
elements reflect the characteristics of the brewery inside.
The clear spans associated with a metal building system were
well-suited for the brewing process, storage and distribution. It
provided a consistent framework at the exterior for customization.
Tall floor-to-ceiling clearances were required for the brewing
tanks, and an open floor plan optimized tank layout and capacity.
Additionally, integral, insulated wall and roof panels conserved
interior space and the panels' industrial-grade finishes withstand
brewery conditions including moisture, temperature swings and
Building Innovation Group Inc. installed Ceco Building Systems'
framing system, 1,300 square feet of 26-gauge PBC metal wall panels
in Brite Red to screen mechanical equipment and 500 square feet of
26-gauge PBC metal wall panels in Black on a façade with brick for
the 20,000-square-foot project, which was completed in December
2015. Additionally, Building Innovation Group installed 20,000
square feet of Metl-Span's 24-gauge, 4-inch-thick by 42-inch-wide
CFR Insulated Roof Panels in Tundra and 5,700 square feet of
24-gauge, 2 1/2-inch-thick by 42-inch-wide Striated Insulated Wall
Panels in Slate Gray for the $2.5 million project.
