Prefab Steel Brewery
Commercial Brewery Construction & Steel Framed Brewing Buildings
Commercial breweries and prefab steel construction are truly a match made in heaven, and the Catskill Brewery stands as a prime example of the benefits that steel construction has to offer.
Our client needed a large space to house commercial-grade brewing equipment. This is an area in which steel building construction shines. Because steel framing can support the immense weight without the need for cumbersome support beams, we can accommodate large open style interiors. This design was perfect for the oversized fermentation equipment the brewery needs to craft its beer. For this project, we joined forces with River Architects to design custom trusses and clerestory windows. The interior space measures approximately 12,000 square feet – ample room for fermentation, tastings, and events.
New York state can experience brutal winters with temperatures often dropping into the teens. Our clients requested extreme insulation to help keep the heating and cooling costs for the large building low. We pre-engineered the project with insulated wall and roof panels to help maintain an optimal thermal envelope inside. The project even includes a section of planted, living roof to aid in runoff capture and added insulation. With a fire-resistant steel frame and Fire Rated panels to protect its combustible equipment, Catskill Brewery can rest assured that it will be brewing its beer for many years to come.
Another major benefit to building with steel is its versatility and customization options, all while providing an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional construction. This project was designed to mirror the charm of the surrounding Catskills region with a red barn style exterior. Solar panels on the roof ensure that Catskill Brewery can cut energy costs and live in line with its value of being a good steward to the environment.
