Buildings constructed from steel or other metals have an incredible amount of flexibility, versatility, durability, and value. These buildings last for decades, require very little maintenance. Although many people automatically associate these buildings with agriculture use or as warehouses, a steel or metal building can actually be used for a large variety of purposes, and an increasing number of modern consumers are discovering the benefits of these buildings over their traditionally constructed counterparts. Following is a short list of just a few of the uses that today’s creative business people are finding for metal buildings.
Micro Office Space
Today’s gig economy has created a significant need for individually sized office spaces that offer flexible leasing options. Ideally, these spaces rent by the day, the week, or the month, depending on the needs of individual entrepreneurs. A good metal building equipped with Wi-Fi, furniture, private and public working spaces, a small conference room, and other business amenities makes a great alternative to working at home for many of those who make their living from the gig economy.
Small Manufacturing Space
Steel buildings are also suitable for small manufacturing, especially now that 3-D printing technology has opened up so many new possibilities for those wanting to start their own manufacturing companies. As an added bonus, these types of buildings are very easy to add onto once businesses outgrow their original space.
Indoor Sports Facilities
Indoor sporting facilities are another great way that metal buildings can be used. They can hold everything from Olympic-sized swimming pools to hockey, tennis, football, and miniature golf. Steel buildings are great for hosting a variety of sporting events because they provide maximum open space with easily movable seating options and walls, allowing for customization depending on the particular sport being played at the time.
Music groups, automobile shows, community arts-and-crafts fairs, and even circuses can be easily housed in a steel building. Specialty tiles that dampen sounds can be used in the case of rock-and-roll bands or other entertainment that creates significant noise.
Pet Care Facilities
Those who want to start a doggy-day care, grooming facilities, or other pet-related businesses are finding that buildings made from metal are meeting their needs more than expected. They especially like that the interior spaces can be easily and quickly remodeled as the services they offer grow and evolve.
