2022 Buildings of the Year – Workshop & Office Space
This project was completed for a farmer in Bertrand, Nebraska. He needed additional space for his ag operation that included cold storage, a heated workshop, as well as a small office area. We designed a building to incorporate all three into one structure. The owner is able to store equipment in the cold storage section while having a climate-controlled workspace to complete any repairs and maintenance. The building includes an office area as well. It was added as a separate enclosed lean-to attached to the end of the building. A 36’-wide garage door was needed to accommodate his equipment size. An engineered I-beam was installed for structural support.
