Maybe you’re thinking of opening a daycare center and not sure where to start. Maybe your child care business has grown too large for your home, and you want to expand into a dedicated facility. No matter where you’re at in your day care business, from planning to expanding, consider prefabricated metal buildings for your child care facility.
Benefits of Metal Buildings for Your Day Care Center
The number one reason to choose a metal building for your day care center is cost. Simply put, a traditional brick or wooden daycare center costs hundreds of thousands of dollars to build, and that’s for a small center! Metal or steel buildings are significantly less expensive per square foot and have several other benefits.
Because metal structures do not require the same interior support as a wooden-framed structure, you have limitless customization options. Whether you want to create an open interior for a larger, all-ages play area, or you want to create smaller spaces to divide by ages, you can design your own interior layout. Plus, as your needs change, you can change your floor plan without worrying about disrupting load bearing walls.
Cost of Operation
Not only are metal buildings less expensive to cost, they are less expensive to maintain. Metal buildings can be heavily insulated, reducing heating and cooling costs. Plus, with a metal structure, you don’t need to worry about sagging, warping, or even termite damage, like you would in a traditional building.
Open Your Business Fast
While wooden framed buildings with brick or siding exterior can take months to construct, a metal building is constructed quickly without cutting corners. From pouring the foundation to finishing the aesthetics, Champion Buildings can be complete within days of starting!
Unlike wood that requires foresting and vinyl siding, stucco, and cement fiberboard that have leave large carbon footprints, steel can be easily recycled without affecting the integrity of the material, making it highly sustainable.
Well-constructed metal buildings are designed to withstand hurricane-force winds while steel has the important benefit of being fireproof. Not only will this keep you, your staff, and your children safer, but it may decrease the cost to insure your building.
Choosing Metal Buildings over Home Child Care Facilities
Home daycare facilities are popular because they are generally inexpensive to open compared to buying an established facility or building a center out of traditional materials such as wood and brick. However, using your home immediately limits your business in terms of how many children you have the space to safely watch, putting a cap on your income before you even get started. Plus, your home is immediately taken over by your daycare – your living spaces are crowded with daycare gear, your yard is turned into a playground, and your private spaces are likely to become invaded.
By having a separate child care facility, you can immediately stand out as a professional with an attractive, child-focused center that is easy to customize for safety guidelines and the needs of your clients. You also can earn a larger income from your center by not only charging more for a dedicated center but by having space for more children!
