Masonry accents required a custom wind-load design for the Denver Curling Center in Golden, Colo. The sports and recreation facility was constructed with a 14-foot, 9-inch eave height. Heath Steel supplied and erected Chief Buildings' metal building system including its standing seam roof system and Architectural Panel (AP) concealed fastener metal wall panels for the 18,500-square-foot project. Additionally, Thermal Design Inc.'s Simple Saver System insulation was installed. Completed in October 2014, the project won Chief Buildings' Building of the Year award for 2014.
