SMS Truck Shop
The new SMS Truck Shop building, North of Fort McMurray, presented its fair share of unique challenges. This 72’ high pre engineered building, from Varco Pruden, was built onto an existing structure and the site had very limited area for laydown and equipment. The facility had a 100 ton overhead crane inside, and two large overhead doors 42’ high and 45’ wide. Grey Lion installed the primary and secondary steel by building the bays on the ground and hoisting into place, reducing equipment time and increasing the speed of the install.
The thermal roof system on this building provided a 12” thick insulation system, producing a R40 insulation value. This was accomplished by installing a liner system above the purlins and installing a secondary purlin system with clips and channels. The void is then filled with insulation and the standing seam roof installed last.
