Steel Church Gymnasium Building in Jamestown, Kentucky

Sunward Steel Buildings, Inc., was the proud fabricator and supplier of this pre-engineered metal building in Jamestown, Kentucky, in August of 2002.

Originally purchased for use as a church gym by Jamestown Christian Church, the metal building has since changed hands, and it now serves the same purpose as the Jamestown First Church of the Nazarene. In addition to hosting regular hours of worship, the church operates a Sunday school, youth ministry and more out of this location, and the steel gym provides ample space for community functions, among them weddings, potlucks, fitness classes and other special events.

Flexible, Multifunctional Construction Solutions 

Often used for both houses of worship and athletic arenas, pre-engineered steel buildings offer high ceilings that are ideal for sanctuaries, choir rooms, basketball courts and the like, and they also boast unobstructed interiors and are easily customizable so they can accommodate virtually any need or purpose.

Metal buildings are also inherently adaptable in the event that a need for additional space arises, and they are also easily recyclable once they reach the end of their life spans. Part of south-central Kentucky’s Russell County, the city of Jamestown is prone to hot, humid summers and relatively mild winters. The community lies about 80 miles outside Elizabethtown and about 96 miles east of Bowling Green.
