Houston, TX (PRWEB) October 30, 2012
Whirlwind Steel Buildings, Inc., metal building and components manufacturer based in Houston, TX, was recently chosen by the City of Elgin, TX to construct a multi-use public building for its Public Works Department.
At 33’ x 41” x 18’, the completed steel structure measures 4,717 square feet and houses two warehouse facilities, as well as finished interior office and storage spaces to accommodate multiple building users. Additional building features include a liner panel, partition and open walls.
Working within a 90-day timeframe, Whirlwind Steel worked closely with general contractor W.S. Walker Company to coordinate the building’s construction. Citing Whirlwind’s direct communication with the company’s steel erector, W.S. Walker Company’s Vice President Chauncey Walker described the partnership as a “good experience” and said, “Whirlwind was great and delivered the building in a timely fashion.”
Both companies are in discussions about future collaborations.
