Because it is critical to maintain steady temperatures in the building, Shelter Works built air-conditioning units into formed openings This allows for the units to be properly supported without requiring any additional support for load-bearing. The better seal obtained from this formed opening greatly reduces any negative impact the equipment might have on the power distribution center equipment, the building itself or on Shelter Works’ industry leading 25-year warranty. In addition, Shelter Works’ unique FiberBeam™ construction allows for proper insulation and energy efficiency in accordance with the latest IBC energy code.
For this particular project done in Alabama, the specifications called for wind loads of 126 mph, which Shelter Works was able to easily provide.
When asked why they chose the Shelter Works building as the best option for their power distribution center, Leblanc explained, “They had the best price and the right delivery that we needed for this project. The building looks great, and everything worked out well.”
