satisfying place to shop for drugs and
sundries. The clean, modern look is created by the low-profile roof line and the
tasteful application of white brick and
Modular Wall on the front wall; white
Monopanl with charcoal Modular Wall
units on other walls. A 3' eave overhang
extends the roof line and gives weather
protection to the 60'x 140'x 12' LRF.
The sale and erection was accomplished by Darland Building Service,
Butler Builder in Omaha.
 There Are As Many Butler Buildings
As There Are Needs For Buildings
HEADQUARTERS—Furr's Inc. operates a chain of
food markets from this office building in El Paso,
Texas. The Butler structure is a 60/x96/xl2/
LRF with a Butlerib aluminum roof carrying a 20-
year guarantee. Sidewalls are insulated Monopanl interspersed with Modular Wall panels for
a decorative touch. The interior has a suspended,
acoustical tile ceiling and is completely air conditioned by gas refrigeration. A 3-foot eave overhang all around adds to the low-profile appearance and provides weather protection for the
exterior walls. Butler Builder was The Banes Co.,
Inc. of El Paso.
BEAUTY AND COAAFORT-The flexibility of Butler buildings is demonstrated in this attractive, efficient
installation which functions as the
Oakdale Park Nursing Home in
Salina, Kansas. Two low-profile
buildings, an 80/xll0/xl2/ and
a 40' x 96' x 12' are combined with
an attached 20' x 60' flat sun
porch. William J. Schell, Architect

HUGE WAREHOUSE-ln June of this year,
Sabre Steel Building Co., Butler Builder in
Portland, Oregon, completed the fourth
building which they have erected for the
Port Authority of the Port of Vancouver,
Washington. Three of the four buildings
are shown here joined in multiple covering
approximately 94,000 square feet. Each
building is 100' x 312' x 30' with a low
profile roof line. The first one built was the
left portion, then the middle portion and
finally the third building. A 30-foot canti-'
levered canopy extends outward from the
sidewall of the third building for the entire
312' length to shelter the loading facilities.
All walls are mist green Butlerib, while the
roof is white Butlerib. Note the liberal use
of Butler Lite*Panl® in the roof to provide
a flood of natural daylight to the interior.
Werner S. Storch & Associates of Portland
were the Architects on the entire project.

wholesale warehouse. Front is masonry, glass and Butlerib. Roof is
insulated Butlerib. Island Industries,
S.A.    of    Nassau    was    Butler    Builder.
Since the first significant usp of pre-engineered structures,
during World War II, Butler metal buildings have been
gaining increased preference in the building industry; each
year finding more acceptability in new applications. Initially,
few owners considered metal buildings for such uses as offices, supermarkets or schools. However, today, less than
two decades later, Butler pre-engineered buildings are in use
for countless applications all over the world.
Following the primary growth in the United States, further
growth followed elsewhere. In just a few years Butler buildings found acceptance in France, The Bahamas, United
Kingdom,  Canada,  Latin America and in fact,  all  around
the world. Universal utility was provided by the variety of
structural systems that met almost any building need; choice
of wall and roof systems; clear span interiors; factory pre-
engineering to assure perfect fit of all components; fast and
easy erection. .
The proven qualities and economies inherent in the Butler
System of Construction are now being enjoyed by companies
owned and operated abroad and by many American companies owning and operating foreign branches and subsidiaries. In this magazine are typical illustrations of Butler
buildings in Canada and other countries ... proof of the
world-wide acceptance of the Butler System of Construction.

 Expansion And Conversion
Keeps Pace With Business
In 1946, The Banes Company, Butler Builder in Albuquerque, erected two Butler buildings for the Whitfield Transportation Co. of Las Cruces, New Mexico. Now the Banes
Company of El Paso has recently completed a "face lifting"
of the two buildings.
The buildings were expanded from 40 feet in width to 50
feet, and from 14 feet in height to 15.6 feet. After this was
done, the buildings were relocated and placed end-to-end to
provide a new 14,500 square foot bus and truck terminal,
office and bus maintenance shop for Whitfield.
Interior improvements and a new Butler roof system make
the old buildings look like new. Characteristic of Butler metal
buildings, the entire operation was completed with virtually
no loss of material from the 18-year old buildings.
NEW HOME—After 40 years of doing business in the
concrete building shown (small photo) the Harold E.
Schall Iron Works, Inc. of Monte Vista, Colorado, now occupies a new Butler building. All four walls of the 60'x
180' structure are Butler-Tone Monopanl, charcoal and
white, with accent panels of slate blue and burnt orange.
The plain galvanized steel roof is insulated with vinyl
covered fiberglass. Overhead doors provide access for
equipment. Colorado Building Systems of Colorado
Springs was the Butler Builder.
 COATING BUILDING—Another combination of three Butler buildings; a 70' x 100' x 20' LRF, a 70' x 25' x 34' and
a 12'x50'x 19' WX. This, also, is enclosed with Butlerib
panels on walls and roof. The interior of the building is
equipped with a Monorail and cranes.
Special Design
Pipe Manufacturing
Complex By Butler
In Romeo, Michigan
Early in 1965 International Pipe & Ceramics Corporation
occupied and began operations in their new plant in Romeo,
Michigan. It was an all-Butler complex of buildings totalling
65,000 square feet. The principal units are identified in the
accompanying photos.
This specialized manufacturing operation involves production of concrete pipe for carrying water to rural communities in the State of Michigan. The all-new plant was constructed in a virgin area of the State near the communities
which would be served. It is planned that future buildings
will be added as the needs arise. This is only one of several
installations of International Pipe & Ceramics Corporation
throughout the United States.
The flexibility of the Butler Building System proved to be
an ideal answer to this construction problem where so many
diverse requirements had to be met in providing functional
space in structures for specialized manufacturing operations.
Sizes and shapes were among the critical considerations.
Garrison Buildings, Inc., Butler Builder in Oak Park, Michigan, was both general contractor and engineer for the entire
 CYLINDER SHOP-Consists of a combination of three Butler buildings; a 100'x
264' x 26' LRF, a 32' x 192' x 26' LRF and
a 30'xl72,x50/ WB. All Butlerib wall
and roof panels on special Butler structural.
Similar in appearance and design
to the Coating Plant this Butler
building is also covered with Butlerib panels on walls and roof.

area; the other 28' was left open for use
as a car port. Butlerib panels cover the
