Exposed Fastener Panels Specified and Installed as Roofing and Most of the Walls at Award Winning Equestrian Community Facility

Exposed Fastener Panels specified and installed as roofing and most of the walls at award winning equestrian community facilityThe residents of the Marlboro Ridge Housing Community were promised equestrian facilities before the recession hit and brought the project to a halt about 10 years ago. Some things are worth waiting for.

After the long wait, Fuog/InterBuild Inc. of Purceville, Va., was given the go-ahead to construct the centerpiece horse barn in Upper Marlboro, Md. The 9,821-square-foot post-frame facility is topped with Max-Rib panels from McElroy Metal and sided with a combination of Max-Rib exposed fastener panels, HardiePlank lap siding, and some brick accents.

“We had those plans ready to go for a long time,” says Jamie Hochmuth of Fuog/InterBuild. “When Toll Brothers reached out to us a couple years ago, we were excited to get things going on this project.”

Marlboro Ridge features a resort-style swimming pool, state-of-the-art fitness center, miles of recreational trails for walking, biking and horseback riding, multipurpose athletic fields, playgrounds, tennis courts and the award-winning Marlboro Ridge Equestrian Center.

The National Frame Building Association named the Marlboro Ridge Equestrian Center its 2016 Building of the Year in the category for Horse Barns greater than 5,000 square feet. Awards were announced at the Frame Building Expo in Nashville in February 2017.

The equestrian center is 192 feet long, 38 feet wide and 30 feet high with a finished apartment for a full-time groundskeeper on the second floor. Hochmuth is proud of the finished facility, highlighted by five cupolas constructed onsite.

The McElroy Metal Max-Rib panel is a 36-inch wide, 3/4-inch high ribbed panel suited for commercial, agricultural and residential use. The 29-gauge Max-Rib roofing panels are Evergreen, while the wall panels are Surrey Beige.

Timber Tech Engineering Inc. of Denver, Pa., oversaw the engineering on the award-winning project. Dimitry Resnik, P.E., says Timber Tech deals in only post-frame construction, including commercial buildings and churches. Metal is the most common roofing and wall panels used in post-frame construction, and it works well for this elaborate horse barn project.

“The only challenge with this project was the connector building,” Resnik says. “A lot of communication was required to make sure everything was done correctly. It all turned out great.”

The barn has 22 stalls, a large tack room, office, laundry, three restrooms, the finished apartment, hay storage, feed rooms and a stand-alone utility room.
