How much does it cost to build a ball court cover?
Ball court covers are great community investments; allowing people to play and exercise year-round.
But how much would it cost to build a court cover? Exact figures differ (you can get an exact quote in 24 hours here), but below is an estimate of the different price ranges you can expect to pay.
Smaller projects include things like covers for playgrounds, rather than entire ball court covers.
Small projects could be as large as 12m x 24m.
Cost range: $10,000 – $30,000
Medium covers include full-sized ball court covers, ranging in size up to 30m x 23m.
Cost range: $30,000 – $90,000
Large projects often cover multiple courts. These projects are often built by schools and large recreation centres. They range in size up to 48m x 43m.
Cost range: $90,000 – $300,000
Building A Warehouse: A Case Study
Many of our clients who are considering building find it useful to see a previous project to understand the process.
Below, we look at the construction of a large warehouse in Daylesford, which was erected in 2016 and is currently leased out to commercial tenants.
Our client planned on building an 80 x 30 x 6.5 metre warehouse in Daylesford. He intended to lease the space to commercial clients to operate a business out of.
He also had previous experience building for the purpose of renting to local business, so had a strong understand of the demand for warehouse space.
DESIGNING THE BUILDING
In order to meet the requirement of commercial operations, our client worked closely with our engineers to ensure the building would hold up to robust commercial use. This including strengthening structural component and ensuring that the wall could bear a load if they were required to.
Give the size of this project, the total cost came between $340,000 and $360,000.
Approximately $270,000 of this cost when to the kit itself (the components of the steel structure). And additional $72,000 went towards the erection of the building.
THE FINISHED PROJECT
The project was erected without a problem, and is now fully functional with reliable tenants operating a business from the site.
