Mark Ford Stable Inc. recently purchased and constructed a fourth Olympia Steel Building supplied by Universal Steel Buildings Corp., adding to its growing high-end stable complex in the upstate New York area known as “The Cradle of the Trotter”. Previous to the purchase of his fourth Olympia Steel Building, owner, Mark Ford, had purchased and constructed three Olympia pre-engineered steel buildings to house his high-end equine boarding stables. Gathering ideas from all over North America and with the help of Olympia Steel Buildings design consultants, sales technicians and engineers, Ford incorporated the best of these ideas into the design of his facilities.
“These state-of-the-art metal buildings are more like warehouses than barns,” commented Ford. The pre-engineered steel buildings have 30 ft. ceilings and house 282 stalls. Openings on the top, front and between stalls promote air circulation. Multiple skylights let in daylight so that electrical lighting is only required at night, saving on electricity. The energy-efficient metal buildings systems are weather-tight. “Even in the winter and without additional heating, the indoor temperature never dips below 42 degrees,” agreed Ford.
“The steel buildings are beautiful. The main building has dormers and they all have windows and barn squire sliding doors,” commented Olympia Sales Technician, Jill Leonello.
In April of 2008, the Times Herald Reporter stated, “most race tracks are doing away with their barns.” The Ford Stables state-of-the-art stable complex is reversing this trend with their extensive use of energy-efficient and cost-effective Olympia Steel Buildings. (Sourced from USTA Hoof Beats).
