A traditional beef feeding building gets a bonus recreational space
When tasked with creating a multi-use structure in north-central Wisconsin, Zimmerman Construction knew the roof had to be strong enough to withstand the area’s harsh winter weather. Annual average snowfalls in Curtiss, Wisconsin, hold strong at 48″, almost a full 20″ more than the national average.
This impressive amount of snow can be heavy and destructive to a building if the project isn’t properly planned out. Zimmerman turned to Hixwood Metal for their Super-Rib 100, which includes a higher zinc content than the industry standard. This also makes it the preferred panel for livestock applications and an appropriate fit for this specific beef feeding building. The high-quality finish on the panels also provides the necessary weather resistance, flexibility, and UV resistance to make sure the roof stands up to the elements for many years to come.
