Recreation Centre Buildings
Fast, Fun Community Buildings for Years of Maintenance-Free Service
Looking into building a recreation centre? Steel recreation centres meet the needs of every community. Whether you want a hockey rink, swimming pool, bowling alley, tennis, volleyball or basketball court, steel is an inexpensive, eco-friendly choice.
Build fast and enjoy customized exteriors and huge savings on insurance, construction and maintenance costs. Rest easy knowing your community is safe from extreme weather, fire and infestation. Designed for flexibility, steel recreation centers are easily expandable and offer wide open spaces for every kind of sport.
Detailed below are some of the most important features and benefits associated with modern metal buildings:
Providing a new recreation centre for the community or the region can be a daunting and expensive task, especially when considering building a traditional wood-framed facility. And with tighter environmental guidelines and the rising cost of utilities, all alternative options should be considered. The Pre-engineered Steel Building (PEB) has quietly become the de facto standard even for small to medium sports facilities in the last few years because of its high scores in virtually every category. Consider, for instance:
A new area recreation centre should build the excitement of anticipation during construction and be the pride of the community when completed. So it needs to look and feel like a modern facility, beautiful as well as functional. A Pre-engineered Steel Building can fulfill both of those needs. PEBs have been constructed as sports facilities, indoor swimming pools, hockey and curling rinks, boys and girls clubs, bowling alleys, indoor basketball, volleyball, tennis, and squash courts—and even full-sized stadiums—all with great success and for a fraction of the cost of other building methods and materials.
One major requirement for many sports centers is openness. A hockey rink or a basketball court cannot be hampered by ill-placed columns or buttresses. By means of a structural technology employed in PEBs call clear-span, facility roofing systems spanning as much as 300 feet (and sometimes more) have been made possible. This openness not only gives players unimpeded use of the floor, but it also affords spectators an unobstructed view of the field of play. With traditional materials and methods, engineering and building such a space can be cost-prohibitive. Erecting a Pre-engineered Steel Building can result in labor and materials cost savings of 40% or more over those of traditional buildings.
But the savings don’t stop there. A large, open facility can also be expensive to heat and cool. But because of steel’s slender profile, it makes more efficient use of insulating materials, resulting in much lower heating and air-conditioning bills. These savings can really add up over the course of the lifetime of a recreation center. Maintenance costs are also lower. Steel is naturally resistant to rot and pest infestation as well as to mold and mildew. And the special alloy with which PEB steel components are coated makes them rust-resistant as well. PEBs seldom need patching, repairing, or repainting; regular cleaning is usually sufficient to keep a facility in great shape. PEBs have also been engineered for extended lifetimes. Because of steel’s naturally high strength-to-weight ratio combined with durable components and anchoring systems, a Pre-engineered Steel Building can withstand gale-force winds, snow storms, hurricanes, and even earthquakes. Steel-framed sports facilities provide safe places to enjoy recreational activities and have even been used as secure shelters during natural disasters. In addition to all of these factors, because PEB components are pre-cut and pre-drilled, they not only go together more quickly than wood-framed structures, but they are much simpler and less expensive to expand. Thanks to their modular make-up, panels can be removed, replaced, and added with very little disruption to normal activities, and for a fraction of the cost of traditional facility remodels.
High scores in all categories of the recreation center construction games make the Pre-engineered Steel Building a Clear Winner!
