Advanced Customizable Designs at Affordable Prices
Imagine a spacious and comfortable interior recreational space where community members can’t wait to spend their free time exercising, playing sports and having fun.
Well, look no further.
Whether it’s a full-sized stadium, a basketball or volleyball court, an indoor swimming pool, hockey or curling rink, bowling alley, indoor tennis or squash courts, a pre-engineered steel recreation center can meet every community’s sporting needs.
There are multiple advantages to choosing steel for your community’s recreational center, from its flexible design to its low-cost construction and durability.
The major benefit of a pre-engineered steel building is its ability to offer clear span and column-free wide-open spaces that are necessary for basketball courts, tennis courts, ice rinks and many other indoor sporting activities. Designed with flexibility in mind, a pre-engineered steel recreational building can be easily expanded to suit any other purpose by simply adding extra wall panels.
Choosing steel for your recreational center guarantees a high-quality structure at an affordable price. Traditional building methods can be costly, but a steel building can result in up to 60 percent in savings on both construction and materials. The high level of durability offered by a steel structure also provides resistance against daily wear-and-tear, resulting in minimal maintenance and lower upkeep costs over time.
Steel is also incredibly strong and durable, and can stand up to harsh and adverse weather conditions, including hurricane and gale-force winds. Our steel structures are engineered according to your climate and region to withstand heavy rain and snowpack. Designed to hold up to everything from minor seismic activity to major earthquakes, a pre-engineered steel recreation center offers peace of mind knowing occupants are safe inside.
With unlimited options for exterior finishes, from steel to masonry, stucco and siding, a steel recreation center can be customized to a high-end appearance guaranteed to be the pride of your community.
Why Choose Steel for Recreational Buildings?
Opportunity for Cost Savings: For any municipality, planning and allocating resources for a new recreation center can be a daunting task. But choosing a pre-engineered steel structure provides a durable and flexible space that can fit any community’s budget, saving you money now and in the long term. Construction is quick with pre-engineered components and requires less manpower to assemble. A steel recreation centre is also highly resilient against rust and mold due to its special coating, and will result in lower maintenance costs.
Flexibility: Steel structures allow for large column-free spaces to accommodate basketball courts, hockey rinks and other large sporting areas. Simply removing an end wall, adding more wall panels, and reattaching the end wall can is all that is needed to expand a pre-engineered steel recreation center to accommodate even more activities. Steel structures can also be customized as multi-purpose structures that also house offices, locker rooms, entertainment rooms, gyms, and more.
Eco-friendly: Steel is a recyclable material, and most manufactured steel today contains an average of 25 percent recycled content and is also entirely recyclable. Since you can simply re-use steel materials, it saves landfill space and prevents depletion of irreplaceable resources like forests, protecting our natural environment and helping to achieve a more livable habitat for future generations.
Low Insurance Premiums: Steel is resistant to termites; it cannot rot or foster mold growth; it is non-combustible and resistant to fire. For all of these reasons, a steel building is relatively inexpensive to insure compared to other building materials. By choosing steel for your recreation centre, you could save 40 percent on insurance premiums.
Resilient Against Fire: Steel has a very high melting point, and remains structurally strong and damage-free even in a fire. In fact, a steel building will help to contain a fire from spreading to other rooms. One particular case study on a steel-built home in California saw the fire smolder for several hours but remain contained to one room, leaving a home with its structural integrity still intact.
Fast Construction: Due to its lightweight nature, steel is a user-friendly material to work with and can be quickly and efficiently constructed. Your community will hardly be inconvenienced at all during construction, as the building will be ready to use in a matter of weeks or months rather than years.
Strength: Steel has an incredibly high strength to weight ratio. Strong enough to withstand hurricanes, gale-force winds and even tornadoes, a steel building proves first-rate protection for your congregation against harsh weather. Our buildings are designed to comply with International Code Council standards according to local wind and snow loading conditions. As a result, it is important to specify the location of your rec’ centre when ordering your steel building to ensure a safe environment for your community to play sports and exercise, even during windy and snowy conditions.
High Efficiency: The components of our pre-engineered steel building are cut with laser-like precision in the factory. As a result, the seams of your steel building will experience significantly less heat loss than a building made from a different construction material, creating the optimal sporting environment.
