Not So Common Applications Assigned to Steel Buildings

Steel buildings have been widely accepted in the construction industry because of their cost efficiency, ease of erection, and durability. Perhaps one of the best things that can be said about these building systems is that their usage is not just limited to warehouses, agricultural storage spaces, and living accommodations. With improvements in manufacturing techniques and design, steel buildings can be made to meet the requirements of unique projects. Here is a list of some of the best yet unusual applications assigned to steel buildings.

Houses of worship

Traditionally, the construction of churches and their extensions often entails the use of masonry or wood. All too often, though, many congregations find that such traditional means of construction is costly. As a matter of fact, a huge chunk of their collection money goes into funding the construction of their houses of worship.

Fortunately, the availability of steel buildings made it possible for congregations to build churches that are both durable and aesthetically pleasing at an affordable cost. Today’s steel structures can be designed into beautiful, soaring churches that can accommodate a huge volume of church-goers. A huge plus: they cost less and are easier to build than masonry or wood churches.

Sports or recreational arenas

From riding arenas and skating rinks, to huge football stadiums and swimming facilities, steel buildings are fast becoming the choice for creating these sports or recreational arenas. This is not surprising at all considering that steel structures offer some major benefits when used for such applications. For one, they can be made to have completely unobstructed floor space and high ceilings, thereby providing a spacious area to simultaneously accommodate different sporting or recreational activities. Another notable thing is that more spectators can watch the events and there are no bad seats since there are no posts or beams that can obscure views from different angles.

Poultry hubs

Sure, steel buildings have long been used for agricultural purposes. However, they are usually dedicated for storing heavy machinery as well as produce. With innovations in design, though, modern steel structures are now being adapted as poultry hubs by many poultry keepers.

Aside from being inexpensive alternatives to wooden or plastic poultry houses, they are way better in terms of maintaining a hygienic environment for birds. This is because they are watertight, easier to clean, and allow for proper use of ventilation, thereby preventing pest infestations. Additionally, due to the expansive design of steel buildings and durable components used in their creation, chickens and other types of poultry have more space to move about and are better protected against predators.

As you can see steel buildings are truly flexible that they can be adapted to befit a number of helpful applications. So if you are looking to have a structure built or you are thinking of adding extensions to your existing structure, a steel building system is what you need to put your project in motion. By using a steel building, you are guaranteed to have a good-looking and long-lasting structure that demands little maintenance.
