Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (PRWEB) February 15, 2012
Universal Steel Buildings construction division recently completed construction of a one-hundred thirty-two-unit mini-storage rental facility in Hagerstown, MD. The storage rental facility is comprised of three 3,000 square foot mini-storage steel buildings and one 3,600 square foot mini-storage steel building totaling out to one-hundred thirty-two rental compartments. Universal Steel Buildings construction division supplied and put up the four Olympia Steel Buildings mini-storage buildings for the large self-storage rental facility project. Sixty-six storage units are provided with three-by-seven foot roll-up doors and the additional sixty-six storage units are provided with eight-by-seven foot roll-up doors to accommodate varying customer needs. All four buildings are insulated with 2” roof insulation.
“The mini-storage facility owner, Jeff Smith, was great to work with,” stated Jonathan Mass, Construction Department Design Estimator. “He knew exactly what he wanted to expand his current warehouse business into the growing self-storage rental business sector.”
The self-storage rental facility business has grown into a multi-billion dollar industry over the past number of years as folks find the need to downsize but do not want to discard items they may value. Current businesses are expanding and new companies are starting up every day to meet the growing demand. The housing market crisis has added to the demand for self-storage rental units as homeowners find they are unable to maintain their current homes, yet do not want to part with precious possessions. The self-storage industry, once found mainly in high-density apartment rental urban areas, can now be found in all areas, from residential suburbs to industrial parks, both urban and rural areas.
“Owners and facility managers require that their self-storage facilities meet and exceed industry standards for quality, reliability and accessibility – that’s why they choose Olympia Steel Buildings mini-storage rental unit buildings when they decide to go into the business,” explains Mass. “We have twelve panel and trim colors, and our precision fabrication allows the buildings to be erected quickly, minimizing labor costs. All our structural framing is hot-dip galvanized for maintenance-free operation and the buildings can be expanded as the business grows. An added bonus is that steel panels and steel framing provide excellent fire resistance – something that is very important to the customer, to have the peace of mind in knowing their possessions are kept safe.”
