An Attachment is a building which will attach to any other building in the project. An attachment can be a Lean-to, single slope or gabled building. Attachments can be made Endwall-to-Endwall, Sidewall-to-Sidewall, Endwall-to-Sidewall or Sidewall-to-Endwall. The frames of an attachment that is a lean-to must line up with the columns lines of the building to which it attaches. Any other building type can attach to another building anywhere along the wall to which it attaches.
Canopies & Overhangs
Both overhangs and canopies are shown in the building pictures above. Overhangs are available from 6” to 25’0” without additional support depending on the manufacturer, most factories are limited to a 5’0” projection. They change the profile of the building to add aesthetic value. They can be added to one side up to all four. Canopies are longer extensions that require support, they are typically 8’10”-12’0”.
A dormer is a roof structure, often containing a window that projects vertically from a sloping roof. Dormers are commonly used to increase space or allow more natural interior light. The dormer shown above is utilized over the entryway of the Gateway building. We can incorporate many different styles of dormers into our steel building systems.

A parapet is a barrier which is an extension of the wall at the edge of a roof, terrace, balcony, walkway, or other structure. Typically buildings with parapet walls will require valley gutters.
