Commercial Steel Building in Pueblo West, Colorado
“There is no way we could have built this large of a building without using a metal building. We were able to spend the extra money on the interior and amenities and now have much more usable space. We reviewed several Metal Building Companies and Metal Building Outlet provided a great price and the best customer service. They worked with us as a team from the beginning to end and we were very satisfied with the results.
Pueblo West, CO | Commercial Building
Metal Building Outlet supplied this pre-engineered commercial steel building in Pueblo West, Colorado, in September of 2018.
Engineered for use as Bumperz Entertainment Center, a new, full-scale fun center featuring a restaurant, bowling alley, putt-putt course, golf simulator and giant darts, among other draws, the massive, highly customized commercial steel building spans 12,000 square feet and caters to families and young adults alike.
Budget was the number-one driver for this particular project, and the building owners considered feasibility and recognized they could do far more with such a large building when it was comprised of steel, rather than wood or brick. Metal Building Outlet worked in close conjunction with the building and business owners to realize their vision and identify numerous opportunities to save along the way.
