Houston’s Whirlwind Steel Buildings, an industry-leading manufacturer of steel building systems, components and roofing, recently finished work a new cricket house for Armstrong Cricket Farm, the country’s oldest commercial cricket grower.

At 45’ x 127’ x 12’, the West Monroe, LA-based facility measures 5715 square feet and features a 2:12 roof slope, a Polar White Super Span X roof and walls and two 45’ transverse partitions to separate the male and female crickets housed within.
