Construction began in March of 2015 on a 38,000 square foot warehouse expansion of Alro Steel’s existing facility, increasing the total warehouse area to 250,000 square feet. The addition consists of a pre engineered steel structure supported on a reinforced concrete foundation. The exterior walls of the addition use an 8’ tall strip of decorative industrial resistant masonry below panel rib metal siding. The warehouse addition was designed for full 20 ton overhead crane coverage. The exterior site and associated pavement was designed to facilitate operations for trucks and forklifts. Careful planning and sequencing was required to keep the interface...

Alro Steel’s existing 25,000 square foot steel distribution/processing/warehouse facility is currently being expanded with a 49,000 square foot “wrap-around” addition. The “wrap-around” addition will create a drive through bay with overhead crane access. The new addition was configured to minimize snow drift loading on the existing building. Customized foundations for the addition incorporate the existing building foundations to resist the heavy snow loads prevalent in western New York. The addition includes extending existing crane runway girders into the new structure. Construction started in July 2014. The new structure will be enclosed in the fall of 2014 and prior to winter...
