A steel building package from General Steel is an ideal fit for schools because of its versatility. Our building packages come with options for customization, including exterior components like framed openings for roll-up doors, sectional doors, walk doors, and more. Interior components such as liner panels, ridge vents, and insulation can be installed for increased functionality. From structural adjustments including crane systems and portal frames to aesthetic choices like roof, wall, and trim color, your steel building will reflect your school’s needs inside and out.
The cost of a steel school building 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.
When it comes to building a school, perhaps the most important advantage of steel construction is its strength and durability. Staff and student safety should always be top priority, and no building material can match steel when it comes to protecting the people in the building. Another advantage of steel construction is the design flexibility. As student population increases, it’s important that school districts can modify layouts and even expand their school buildings.
Selecting the appropriate building type depends on your budget, location, and the building supplier. Options include arch style, open web, hybrid open web truss, tube steel, C-channel, and rigid frame. Consult our resource below to gain a better understanding.
