steel sheds

Clubrooms and indoor sporting facilities are complex project that are usually handled by a commercial builder who can offer a turn-key solution. We can deliver design, engineering, fabrication and installation of the steelwork, however, all other parts of the project including internal fit-out, carparking etc are included in the scope of the commercial builders works.

Approximate cost of CSB scope of a clubroom build is $150,000 – $200,000.


How do you calculate the roof size?

To calculate the size of the roof you will need to add a minimum of 1.5m to all four sizes of the recreation area. This allows for safe runoff without hitting the columns and maximises protection from the elements undercover.

Will I need to arrange building permits?

Recreational covers do require buildings permits, but these are usually not left to the end client to organise. We can look after building permits for our clients.

Have you built recreational covers before?

We’ve built over 80 rec covers and have built thousands of steel structures since our beginnings in 1975.

Our team of experts from engineers to fabrication all have years of experience shed construction.
