The building structure consists of exposed pre-engineered, wood-framed roof trusses supported on wood-framed bearing walls. The lateral system consists of exterior wood-sheathed shear walls. Covered wood-framed canopies were provided at exterior entrances at both the front and rear of the building.
Exterior construction includes panel siding and exterior glazing with cold formed metal framed stud back-up. Foundations are shallow concrete spread footings.
