Chicken Layer Barn
The Green Acres Colony Chicken Layer Barn was initiated in July 2021 and successfully completed in May 2022. Spanning over 36,750 square feet, this state-of-the-art building boasts a robust and meticulously designed structure. The combination of various construction elements – including precast, steel, insulated metal panel (IMP) and cladding – support a durable and efficient environment for poultry farming.
The building envelope features 3/4/3 precast walls, a fire-resistant clad roof and an IMP ceiling system. The concrete aspects encompass cast-in-place strip footing, slabs and interior walls, while precast components consist of 3/4/3 exterior walls and 8″ solid interior walls.
Metal elements include steel scissor trusses for structural support and cold-rolled galvanized roof purlins. For optimal thermal and moisture management, Falk 4″ insulated metal panels were installed in the ceiling system, complemented by fire-resistant cladding on the roof.
To optimize the functionality of the building, various openings were integrated, including overhead doors of different sizes, cooler doors, stainless steel man doors and PVC windows. Meticulous attention was also paid to finishes, such as eave cladding, flashings, and trims, ensuring both operational functionality and pleasing aesthetics.
Our team took pride in collaborating closely with equipment and ventilation suppliers throughout the process to ensure seamless integration and proper placement of their products within the facility. This thoughtful coordination of expertise and efforts led to a successful outcome that positions the Green Acres Colony Chicken Layer Barn for long-term operational success.
