Houston, TX (PRWEB) November 30, 2012
Houston-based pre-fabricated building manufacturer, Whirlwind Steel Buildings, recently completed work on a covered basketball court for the City of Vidalia, Louisiana.
Located in the city’s new municipal complex, the basketball court stands at 62’ by 113’ by 18’ and measures 7200 square feet. Featuring a gabled roof, open walls and special bracing, the structure was built from steel to withstand heavy windloads.
Alexandria, Louisiana general contractor, Petron, LLC, selected Whirlwind Steel for the job after working with the company on previous projects. Petron’s Jason Slatten cited the familiarity and reassurance he felt working with a trusted manufacturer of metal buildings, components and roofing. Praising Whirlwind’s customer service, Slatten said, “They took care of us and turned everything around quickly.” Following their successful partnership on the Vidalia basketball court, Slatten said his company hopes to work with Whirlwind again on future projects.
