Working with General Steel is a collaborative process that ensures that your final product reflects your specific needs. The process starts with a two-way conversation between you and our experienced team. We want to know exactly how you’ll be using your gymnasium, how it fits within your property, and your ideas for interior and exterior design, among other factors. We then research the location of the building to ensure that your gymnasium or gymnatorium is equipped to withstand the wind and snow loads of your area as well as any insulation requirements.
Once we get an idea of what building kit best suits your project, we work with you to add customization options, including a wide variety of doors, windows, and exterior color schemes. The ease of steel construction allows us to modify layouts and add further customizations without breaking your budget. From design to construction, we provide the materials and expertise to transform a building kit into a gymnasium.
While steel is best known for its strength, there are a few other factors that make steel a superior building material. One advantage of steel construction is the use of clear span framing. This construction feature provides 300 feet of column-free floor space, which is especially important when installing sports fields or courts.
Another advantage of steel construction when compared to traditional building materials is efficiency. A gymnasium often requires highly specialized features, which not only come with high costs, but also extend your project timeline if you’re using wood or brick. Steel building kits are erected using simple, bolt-together construction, which allows you to save on labor costs and materials.
The cost of your steel building gymnasium depends on a few factors; first, the size of the gymnasium building package. Larger structures cost more but are cheaper in terms of cost per square foot. Second, building prices are determined by design, including the custom features that you select. Lastly, the price of steel at any time can fluctuate based on market performance. These factors combine to set your final price.
Prefab gymnasiums vary in size, depending on the activities it supports. A high school basketball court is typically 84 feet long and 50 feet wide. Some facilities might require less space, but more often, a gymnasium will require at least 10,000 square feet of space.
CrossFit is one of the most popular gym programs in the country. If you’re looking to build a gymnasium to start your own CrossFit gym, startup costs – including equipment, certifications, and other expenses – can run anywhere from $30k-$70k.
