Commercial Steel Dealership Building in Anchorage, Alaska

Sunward Steel Buildings, Inc., was the fabricator and provider of this pre-engineered steel building in Anchorage, Alaska, in October of 2004.

These days, the durable, multifunctional metal building serves double-duty as a showroom and retail store for the Alaska House of Yamaha, a Big Lake, Alaska-based dealer of motorcycles, ATVs, snowmobiles, trailers, watercraft, parts and more. In addition to offering a wide inventory of new and used bikes and toys, the dealer also provides repair and maintenance services for the products it sells, with all jobs performed by highly trained factory technicians who are well-versed in stock and performance motorsports. 

Reliable, Multifunctional Commercial Construction Solutions

Rugged and engineered to maintain its structural integrity in the face of extreme weather, heavy snowfall and other notable Alaska construction hazards, pre-engineered steel commercial buildings can accommodate businesses of virtually any type, and they tend to be more affordable to purchase and raise than most alternatives.

They also require significantly less than wood buildings in terms of upkeep, generally needing only an occasional power wash to retain their good looks over time. This particular metal showroom and retail operation provides a safe, all-season space to store inventory and service motorcycles, snowmobiles and other products available at the Alaska House of Yamaha and has served as a valuable business asset for more than 15 years.

The largest city in the state of Alaska, Anchorage sits at the terminus of the Cook Inlet, in south-central Alaska. The city lies about 43 miles from Wasilla and roughly 113 miles south of Talkeetna.
