1: Additional Office SpaceAs companies evolve, it’s often necessary to bring on additional team members. That means finding office space where they can work. Companies that rely on traditional stick-built facilities are tasked with a pricey build-out or increased rental costs. Neither of those options is appealing. But companies that invest in metal buildings have the option of leaning on available customization tools. Adding additional space is part of the underlying reason metal buildings are trending. They are made with inexpensive expansion in mind.
2: Start a Recreational Center BusinessConsider the popularity of today’s fun centers. They seem to be popping up in communities across the country. Businesses such as laser tag, trampoline centers, or even tennis courts are fast discovering that metal buildings lower the capital needed to get a recreational business up and running. Cost is one of the toughest impediments for people with a vision to realize their business dreams. Metal buildings make those goals more attainable.
3: Create a Pro-Level Personal WorkshopPeople who own a commercial metal building understand that it has a wealth of capabilities. Not all of them have to be business oriented. It’s not uncommon to convert a portion of the space into a personal workshop. These are some of the uses serious hobbyists can enjoy in a metal building.
- Art Studio
- Woodworking Workshop
- Band Space
- Video Editing Studio
4: Commercial Storage Unit Rental IncomeMetal buildings provide the same level of climate control comfort as expensive brick and mortar structures. That opens the door to renting part or all of your space. Because metal buildings enjoy climate control precision, niche trades such as artists, musicians, and others that have specialized equipment can make use of your space. This type of outside-the-box thinking could deliver a welcome return on investment for your metal building.
5: Start a Private GymWorkout warriors pay significant membership fees to stay fit. Joining a gym or health club also involves gas and a travel time commitment. But your metal building offers many of the same things as the gym. Open space, bathroom facilities, electricity, and air conditioning. That has prompted metal building owners to gather friends and move in fitness equipment. Imagine a gym that’s open 24/7 to a select group of friends and co-workers.
6: Community Gathering SpaceNon-profit organizations, charity groups, book clubs, and many other groups require a place to get together. If you are involved in a group, offering your metal building for regular gatherings can be a boon. Without a place to meet, community organizations tend to lose track of their mandate and good works. Your metal building can bring people together.
7: Open a Car DealershipsThe idea that a car dealership doesn’t need to break the bank constructing a large facility to house the sales team, administration, customer service, and showcase vehicles seems counterintuitive. After all, impressing prospective buyers with the facility is almost as important as the vehicles. But metal structures actually provide car dealerships with precisely the space innovations you desire. These include the following.
- Signage Options
- High Ceilings
- Customized Lighting
- Flexible Designs
- Glass Wall Options
- Customized Office Space
