Broiler Barn 430’ X 74’

This is Copperfield’s 3rd barn with SCLE. Copperfield’s building has concrete walls (Copperfield makes their own) and wood trusses and ceiling lined with EZ PVC liner panel. This barn has chimney ventilation with a combo of end wall fans. Two rows of inlets on either side of the ceiling one row for winter ventilation and combined with another row for summer ventilation accompanied by a misting system with the summer inlets. A doghouse is built on the end of the building to protect the 72” exhaust fans from back pressure and to soften the light.
