Retail Steel Building in Waverly, Alabama

Sunward Steel Buildings, Inc., was proud to manufacture and supply this pre-engineered steel building for a customer in Waverly, Alabama, in June of 2007.

These days, the spacious, energy-efficient steel building is in use as Sportsmans Outpost, a destination and retail store for outdoor enthusiasts across eastern Alabama and beyond who come to buy supplies for fishing, hunting, and processing. In addition to selling a wide range of guns, bows, and other equipment used for hunting, the store has its own 10-lane outdoor pistol range, where guests can take handgun safety courses and practice their skills in a safe, regulated environment.

The brick-and-mortar store, itself, features a number of impressive features, from a high-performance insulation package to extra sheeting and roof trim that add an additional layer of protection and water-tightness to the building.

Affordable Commercial Construction Solutions

Increasingly, buyers looking to open retail stores or other commercial operations are opting for prefabricated commercial steel building kits, which offer substantial savings over wood alternatives when it comes to erection, lifelong maintenance, and the like. Steel grocery stores, shopping centers, warehouses, and similar operations typically go up much faster than wood buildings, resulting in significant savings on erection alone.

Part of the Auburn Metropolitan Area, the town of Waverly has land in eastern Alabama’s Chambers and Lee counties. The community sits about 12 miles outside Auburn and about 62 miles from Montgomery.
