Established in 1956, the Snake Creek National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) was built after the completion of the Garison Dam in Coleharbor, North Dakota. Although a lot of wildlife was unfortunately compromised, the creation of the refuge helped rehab some of the lost wildlife. In 1967, the refuge was renamed to Audubon NWR as a tribute to a nearby naturalist and artist who dedicated his life to studying and capturing the beauty of wildlife. Spanning an enormous area of 368,000 acres, the lake provides a thriving habitat for a plethora of distinct animal species.
Despite its history, nothing is immune to old age and that includes the refuge building. The building had succumbed to critical health and safety issues, with the emergence of hazardous substances like asbestos, widespread rodent infestation, and the growth of mold due to water leakage. To ensure that the environment and its inhabitants continued to thrive, it became imperative to discard the obsolete structure and replace it with a safer alternative.
To solve the issues present, MBCI partnered with Industrial Enterprises to achieve the desired functionality and sustainability of the building's roof panels. They opted for MBCI's 24-gauge BattenLok® HS standing seam roof panel in Classic Green with a Signature® 300 finish, using a total of 16,000 square feet. This choice was made to address the serious health and safety issues that the building had acquired.
