Cost To Build A Basketball Court Cover
The average cost to build a basketball court cover is $128,600. The price ranges from $31,000 up to $270,000, which the total price depending on the total area covered by the basketball court cover.
Small Ball Court Covers
Small ball court covers span an area the exact size of a full court; 28 metres x 15 metres. The cover is engineering to avoid the use of wire cross-bracing, making it safer for users.
Cost range: $25,000 – $35,000
Medium Ball Court Covers
Medium ball court covers span an area approximately the size of two full basketball courts. A typical project of this size would be 40 metres x 36 metres.
Cost Range: $100,000 – $150,000
Large Ball Court Covers
Large ball court covers span an area up to 60 x 40m.
Cost range: $220,000 – $300,000
Will I Need To Arrange Buildings Permits?
Ball court covers do require buildings permits, but these are usually not left to the end client to organise. A reliable builder will organise these on your behalf; we have an in-house expert who handles all permits.
Have You Built Ball Court Covers Before?
We’ve built over 80 ball court covers in the last 5 years and have built thousands of steel structures since our beginnings in 1975.
Our team includes engineers, draftsmen and project managers, all with years of experience in their field.

What Is The Difference Between A Class 1 & And Class 10 Building?
The belief that it is a simple process to convert a class 10 shed into a class 1 home for an economical solution to building a house. This however is wrong as it takes a lot more effort to convert from a class 10 shed to a class 1 home than most people realize. In the following paragraphs we will explain why this is.
Differences between a class 10 shed and a class 1 home
Engineering differs substantially between the two types of constructions. Class 10 sheds are engineered so that in a wind storm there will be allowed some flex and movement in the frame. This is okay as the shed is not lined. However, for a Class 1 building the engineering needs to suffice to not allow any flex in the frame as this will damage all internal lining.
Also Class 10 sheds are built on a standard slab, which is able to allow for a small amount of settlement as the building is not lined. This contrasts with a Class 1 building as no settlement should be allowed in the slab or internal linings will develop cracks.
There are many more differences between the two designs of buildings, including alternative levels of requirements in vermin proofing, termite control and so on. All of these differences are surmountable, however the money and effort put into them outweighs the immediate benefit.
Differences in structure design between a class 10 shed and a class 1 home
Although it is accurate that you are able to obtain a class 10 shed to a weather lock up stage cheaper than a Class 1 stud frame and truss building, the fitting requires high cost.
Class 10 portal framed buildings aren’t designed to be lined, so to do this it is very difficult. One thing after another become harder and require more amendments and cost by using a class 10 portal frame. However with a Class 1 stud frame these things are standard as normal builders do them everyday.
It is important to note that it is possible for a portal framed class 10 shed to be constructed as a class 1 home, however as said in previous paragraphs a lot of time and money is needed to acquire this result and you would need to work with an architect. The main reason our of clients who build this kind of structure is to achieve a simple study look in their home, not to get a cheap house. See below some of our past DesinaBuild jobs.
