Bob O'Link Golf Club Commercial Storage Facility
At Western Steel, we specialize in delivering building solutions for comprehensive construction projects, including commercial storage buildings across North America.
- Square Feet: 34,704
- Configuration: Two separate gable structures | 60’x180’4 & 60’x121′
- Location: Highland Park, Illinois
- Application: Commercial Storage Facility
Located in Highland Park, Illinois, the Bob O’Link Golf Club project is illustrates custom design and innovative construction solutions. This project consists of two buildings, combining elegance with functionality to serve the needs of the favorite local golf club. The total square footage for these two buildings is an impressive 34,704 sq. ft., with the larger building measuring 60′ by 180′ 4″, and the smaller one spanning 60′ by 121′.
Roofing and Insulation:
Both buildings feature gable roofs with standing seam metal roof panels that not only provide an aesthetically pleasing look but also offer robust structural support. These roofs are engineered to snow loads capacity of 21 psf (pounds per square foot).
The project’s fully insulated roof helps ensure optimal temperature control and energy efficiency. Meanwhile, the surrounding walls of both buildings are equipped with state of-the-art 2.5″ insulated metal panels (IMPs), enhancing thermal insulation and creating an energy-efficient envelope.
Natural Lighting and Skylights:
To maximize natural light and create an inviting atmosphere, the design incorporates an array of skylights and canopied spaces. The larger of the two buildings boasts prismatic curbed skylights, strategically positioned to flood the interior with sunlight, reducing the need for artificial lighting during the day. This not only lowers energy costs but also creates a pleasant environment for golf club members and staff.
Advanced Technology and Wind Resistance:
In a region known for challenging weather conditions, the Bob O’Link Golf Club buildings were engineered for resilience. Moreover, the technologies employed have been rigorously tested for wind resistance, capable of withstanding gusts of up to 120 MPH. This ensures the safety and longevity of the structures, even in the face of adverse weather conditions.
The Bob O’Link Golf Club project showcases the versatility of steel building solutions, providing an elegant, energy-efficient, and technologically advanced space that meets the unique needs of the golf club. It represents Western Steel Buildings’ commitment to excellence in design and construction.
Areas We Serve
Our fully-integrated team of Structural Engineers, Detailers, Account Managers, and Estimators provides our clients with optimal resources for timely and cost-effective steel building solutions. This streamlined organizational structure enables us to respond quickly and complete projects within tight timeframes, ensuring timely and cost-effective results that meet even the most critical project needs.
Our Steel Building Types
Our Structural Engineering team streamlines each aspect of structural steel building, from design analysis to material procurement, ensuring customer satisfaction and guaranteed on-time delivery.
Also known as pre-eng, this type of building system consists of precision-designed components fabricated to spec at the factory. The factory-cut, ready-to-assemble parts are then shipped to the site, speeding up the construction process.
A Western Steel Hybrid Building System combines the secondary members of Pre-engineered Metal Buildings (PEMBs) with Conventional Structural Steel trusses, providing unparalleled design flexibility with installation efficiency
Western Steel offers a full range of building solutions for low to mid-rise, new construction projects. Our solutions include pre-engineered metal buildings (PEMBs), conventional or structural steel systems, and hybrid buildings. Our extensive structural engineering expertise on various commercial and industrial projects allows us to create structural solutions efficiently, economically, and flexibly.
We use the latest design techniques and BIM software to engineer structures with efficiency and economy while maintaining the architectural direction. The design process begins with thoroughly understanding the client’s needs and goals. We then value-engineer each project based on functional requirements, budget constraints, and aesthetic preferences. Once we discover these factors, we develop a conceptual design to meet our client’s objectives.
