No one would be surprised to learn that the new Interstate Batteries store in Waco, TX was designed and built using a metal building system. The dark green metal roof, the tan-colored R-panels and even the building’s overall appearance are pretty good clues. What might raise a few eyebrows, however, is that the stone base and stucco-like walls wrapping the front of the building were also off-the-shelf products offered by the project’s metal building manufacturer, Rigid Global Buildings of Houston.
The new store was designed in accordance with the retail chain’s corporate identity standards, including the dark green roof color. The project’s contractor, Calatan Rockwall Road Partners of Dallas, TX, was able to match that color by specifying Rigid’s Platinum Series 26-gauge standing seam metal roofing with Rigid’s Classic Green coil-applied paint finish.
The back portion of the building is a 70’ x 100’ service volume clad with Rigid’s 26-gauge R profile wall panels in a Saddle Tan color. The retail storefront portion of the building is 25’ x 95. It features Rigid’s Rigid Rock product around its base and StuccoLite stucco-finish metal wall panels above.
