“There is a growing demand to build new church buildings or to expand existing church facilities,” reports Arnold Davis, President of Olympia Steel Buildings. “With Olympia’s pre-engineered metal church buildings, Churches can grow and meet their worship needs within a budget their congregations can afford.”
Congregations increasingly choose pre-engineered steel buildings over other types of construction. They find that construction costs are less with pre-engineered construction. Insurance costs are less for steel construction than for “stick-built” construction and maintenance costs are significantly less.
“Our pre-engineered metal church buildings save time and money over traditional brick, wood or stone construction,” explains Davis. "The structural engineering fees are included in the building project cost. This makes our steel construction cost about 50 percent less than conventional construction. The roof coating that Olympia uses is AZ55 Galvalume. There is a 25-year perforation warranty on the roof panels backed by the steel mills. If a hole rusts through a panel, the steel mill will replace the panel. The coating requires no maintenance or painting and it retains its original luster. This means the roof will last for many years without maintenance and still retain its beauty. The same is true of the side panels – all you have to do is keep them clean. Low maintenance costs mean that churches can devote financial resources to other projects."
Olympia Steel Buildings has launched their new website, http://www.Olympiachurchbuildings.com to introduce the strength, beauty, and economy of pre-engineered steel buildings for church construction to the public. The new website features photos and information about metal church buildings designed and manufactured by Olympia, and links to church building resources.
Sanctuaries, gathering rooms, administration offices, choir rooms, welcome centers, youth rooms, classrooms, gymnasiums, and multi-purpose rooms can be customized with a variety of ceiling lights, sky lights, windows, doors, insulation, and panel colors. Metal church buildings can be designed to suit the congregation and to match existing buildings with architectural facades of wood, stucco, brick, or stone.
“We are very proud of our pre-engineered church buildings,” Davis adds. “Because our metal church buildings are engineered to withstand even the harshest weather conditions, they are an attractive choice in areas subject to hurricanes. Snow loads and wind loads are no problem. And their solid I-beam clear span construction allows for a soaring, unobstructed interior visual space, with high-ceilings and post-free interiors. We are very pleased to present the advantages of pre-engineered metal church buildings and are confident that our new website will be a valuable resource for growing congregations.”
