EXPERIENCE YOU CAN TRUST
All Roads Lead to Georgia
Steven Eppes lived a childhood full of adventure and exploration. As the son of an Air Force veteran, he experienced living everywhere, from Germany to North Carolina. This sparked his love of travel and seeing new things.
As an adult, he pursued his passion for travel and has visited all 50 states in the US. Along the way, he found love in Albany, Georgia, where he moved to in 2002. He met his wife, Hannah, at the gym where he worked out for 6 months to impress her. They got married two years after their first date.
In 2017, Steven joined Vulcan Steel as a detailer/checker. He brought his technical skills and experience from previous jobs to his new role in the metal building industry. Stephen is now a member of the design team and enjoys planning out metal structures with the help of his colleagues, building on his past experiences, and expanding his abilities.
Steven is proud of how much he has learned about metal buildings and life in general during his time at Vulcan Steel. He is eager to learn more and improve his skills with new challenging projects in the future.
The Business Park at Williams
Just over four acres in Columbus, Georgia is being transformed into the Business Park at Williams and it will house a variety of businesses and a church. The buildings will offer tenants drive-in doors and loading docks for tractor-trailer deliveries. The spaces will range from 1,680 to 4,472 square feet.
Vulcan Steel Structures manufactured the buildings for this project and Thayer Bray Construction, LLC, of Phenix City, Alabama is the general contractor.
The business park is comprised of two different buildings, each having a 44-gauge Galvalume UD 324 roof. A combination of vertical and horizontal panels adds architectural definition to the exterior. The exterior walls are a combination of 26-gauge Galvalume PBC and PBR panels and 26-gauge 7.2 Charcoal Gray panels.
Building one is made up of three gable buildings with two single-slope buildings totaling 15,000 square feet and building two is made up of one gable building and one single-slope building totaling 9,600 square feet.
