There are familiar images that come to mind when visualizing a steel building. They look nice enough, but you can tell they are steel buildings. So, first of all, let’s put those images to rest. Here are a few photos of steel-framed homes.
For many more excellent examples, just Google, “Beautiful steel homes.”
Steel frame buildings can look just as pleasing as wood frame structures. But where steel construction really shines is when building large sturdy structures. Prices of a basic 50 x 100 metal building could run between $5,000 and $50,000. Pole barn kit prices of a 5,000 square feet steel building range from $20,000 to $100,000 (https://polebarnkits.org/50-x-100-pole-barn/). Obviously, a teen center is going to require quite a few extras, but to have a fully insulated well built structure at that cost allows for creative options to keep prices down. Having a steel building professional assembled by the provider will raise the overall costs, but you will know what you’re paying upfront, and it will be assembled professionally.
As with houses, commercial steel buildings can have a pleasing appearance. Here are some examples:
In addition to substantial cost savings, metal buildings are safe and durable. Fire-resistant metal can last a lifetime, which is why more and more homeowners are replacing their asphalt shingles with steel. They are simple and cost-effective to expand when you need more space. As demonstrated above, there are many attractive building finishes in a wide variety of colors. Steel buildings are environmentally friendly, as steel can be recycled. They are faster and easier to construct than traditional methods. And metal buildings are low maintenance, with no need to paint or patch.
There is the option of using wood and other materials for the interior of the building. Lumber prices have been fluctuating wildly, having dipped after reaching all-time highs, and costs are now going back up. Using the simplicity of design, steel remains the most cost-effective approach to a youth center interior.
A major hindrance for churches or small communities to build a youth center or expand the youth area of their current facility is cost. Rock Solid Teen Center addresses every aspect of building costs and the more ideas you implement the more bang you will get for your buck.
