Living up to Our Name in Alaska
What’s in a name?
Just about everything, especially when it comes to Worldwide Steel Buildings.
We chose that name because of the confidence we have in our product to withstand any climate anywhere – including Juneau, Alaska, where we manufactured an oversized steel garage for Tom and Pamela Chapin.
“We live in a remote community that is only accessible by boat or plane and 900 miles away from major shipping ports,” says Tom. “In our rainforest we receive approximately 120 inches of rain yearly and annual snowfall of up to 200 inches.”
Although those conditions may intimidate some steel building manufacturers, they didn’t deter the Worldwide Steel Buildings team and lead consultant John Turner. Able to overcome the 3,000-mile distance barrier via phone and email communication, John, along with Tom and Pamela, successfully mapped out detailed blueprints, manufacturing specifications and logistics for the oversized garage.
“As a result of John and many others at Worldwide Steel Buildings, my garage has become a reality,” notes Tom. “We look back on this project and experience in a very positive light.”
