SS/20 Building Systems Creates a Better Way to Build Multi-Story Self-Storage

Continued from page 1

SS/20’s structural engineer is registered in 42 states and can furnish a complete set of drawings including foundation and masonry-wall design. The framing system is compatible with all building types from two stories to eight stories. The system furnishes floor heights up to 20 feet tall to handle mezzanines, and drive-through and retail/office space on the ground level. Many types of siding are used on the buildings from tilt-up, masonry, block and insulated composite wall panels with an insulation factor up to R-33.  

Meeting Challenges

Storage Post recently hired SS/20 to build a 95,000-square-foot, six-story facility in Brooklyn, N.Y. The site had two basement levels. Originally given 70 working days to complete the job, SS/20’s schedule was reduced to an aggressive 43 days so the owner could meet an opening deadline.

Even with the unique challenges of building in a New York borough, SS/20 completed the building in a record 35 days. “Given the aggressive schedule, we were cautiously optimistic going into this,” says Marc Slayton, president of Storage Post. “SS/20 Building Systems met or exceeded every deadline that was set. We look forward to working with them on our future projects.”
