Distributed throughout the building are (16) framed openings varying in size, among them (2) 10’x12’ openings, (1) 12’x12’ opening, (9) 4’x3’ openings, (2’x3’ opening, and finally, (3) 3070 openings intended for walk doors.
The metal shop building also features an insulation package to help minimize energy expenditures given Fairplay’s mountainous location and long, sometimes bitterly cold winters.

The building also boasts a wind speed of 115 mph and a very high snow load of 65 lbs. in consideration of the climate and weather patterns characteristic of the area.
