Our PermaBilt® Building Representative met with a customer who purchase a piece of property to put up a commercial produce stand building. The customer had met with the County and knew that he had some work to take care of before such a building could be erected, but they pinned down the design and accessories.
Prior to submitting it to the County, we found that they had additional, extensive requirements if the building was 3000 square feet or over. The building size was originally 40’x75’ (3000 square feet). In order to keep the building below that threshold, we reduced the building size minimally to 40’x74.9’. Once permitting was approved, the construction crew began on the building. One of its unique features was the roof extended beyond the building onto a patio, perfect to display the fresh produce outdoors. Two front doors with raised panel steel—great for strength, security and durability—allowed easy access to roll out their food for opening and closing. Another good idea on their part was choosing the classic red siding color to draw and attract new customers. And by picking three 10’ continuous flow ridge vents that are so important when housing perishables, they could make sure that their produce had plenty of fresh air.
When completed the owner was very pleased especially when he saw the foot traffic heading to his stand.
