Custom Designed to Accommodate a Variety of Sports

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 will be using your metal sports facility, how it will fit on your property, and your ideas for interior and exterior design, among other factors. We then research the location of the facility to ensure that it’s 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 high-performance, affordable sports facility.

Column Free up to 300' Wide

Steel is renowned for its strength, but one of the primary benefits of purchasing a steel building for your sports facility is its versatility. Our building kits are designed according to use, which means we are able to modify floor layouts as well as include customization options in order to host multiple events, sports, or training needs.

Another advantage of constructing a steel building is the clear span framing of our steel building kits. General Steel can accommodate almost any specialized layout required for your facility. Our building kits are free of interior columns, allowing maximum space for playing fields, weight rooms, swimming pools, or any other specialized training facilities.

Steel Sports Facilities vs Traditional Sports Facilities

Metal Sports Building Pros

  • Design flexibility meets federal, state, and local building codes
  • Simple bolt-together construction saves time and money

Metal Sports Building Cons

  • Unique roof elevations can be cost prohibitive
  • Higher upfront cost
  • Many unreliable kit providers offer cheap, inferior product

Traditional Sports Building Pros

  • Cheaper upfront costs
  • Building materials less influenced by commodity price swings
  • Easiest building system to insulate

Traditional Sports Building Cons

  • Interior columns don’t allow for flexibility in design
  • Extended construction timeline increases project price
  • Higher insurance costs due to vulnerability to fire damage
Why is clear span framing important for a sports facility?

Clear span buildings requiring no interior columns for support. This is especially important for playing courts and fields that require uninterrupted, open space.

How do I avoid the big-box aesthetic of a steel building?

We provide customization options, including several choices for windows, doors, and color schemes to make your building your own.

How is a steel building priced?

There are three factors that affect the cost of your building: building design, the price of steel, and economies of scale.
