Community Center Prefabricated Steel Construction For Durability: Case Study

Mar 27, 2024

Looking to renovate your community center to serve friends and family for decades to come? Then you’ll want a super-durable, super-flexible material like pre-engineered steel. Reich Construction LLC (301-550-0540) uses just that material in its building projects, which include community center renovations.

Community centers are where memories are made at major life events like weddings, where friends come to gather, where holidays are celebrated – where a community’s social fabric is woven. When such structures are taken away due to tragic events like fires or natural disasters, in a sense, the memories they hold are also taken away.

Build New Memories with Reich Construction LLC

But not forever – a new structure can be built, new memories can be made, and the community’s social fabric can be re-knitted. Reich Construction LLC’s prefab steel design and building services helped a community in Anne Arundel County, MD do just that when its beloved Selby on the Bay Community Center was burned down.

Building with Prefab Steel Has Many Benefits

Reich Construction LLC’s case study features its renovation of the Selby on the Bay Community Center after it was destroyed by a devastating fire. The case study has been published to inform you about the benefits of using pre-engineered steel in your building and renovation projects.

When you choose to build or renovate with this type of steel, you'll be ensuring your community center is exceptionally durable, quick to assemble, and cost-effective. You'll also be able to customize it according to the needs of your community and according to local government ordinances.

Enjoy Structural Integrity & Savings

Pre-engineered steel is known for its durability, so you can be sure your building will have the structural integrity to endure all kinds of weather conditions, and it'll have superior fire resistance as well. Moreover, the more durable your building is, the less maintenance it will need over its lifetime, so you'll save money over the long term.

As you can see, prefab steel structures are exceptionally cost-effective, especially when compared to traditional steel structures. That's because their components are prefabricated off-site through a standardized manufacturing process, making on-site construction faster and less expensive and reducing time to occupancy.

Reich Construction LLC Knows How to Save Clients Time & Money

The company’s work on the Selby on the Bay Community Center was especially cost-effective and also fulfilled stringent local fire safety standards. The new community center was designed at grade level and fashioned with pre-engineered steel, reducing the risk of fire and avoiding the need for a sprinkler system. This strategic choice significantly lowered costs and reduced construction time.

“By raising the grade instead of making a two-story building, we avoided costs for an elevator, a sprinkler system, extensive foundations, and other costs, saving over $200,000,” a company representative said.

Structures Flexible Enough for Beauty & Functionality

Better yet, building components fashioned out of pre-engineered steel give you considerable design flexibility to accommodate your community's needs and government regulations, whether they be large open spaces for communal gatherings, quiet nooks for studying, or mandatory emergency exits - Reich Construction LLC can do it for you. They were able to renovate the Selby on the Bay Community Center as an aesthetically pleasing and functional steel structure that both serves and beautifies its community.
