Over the years, Span Africa steel structures have become well known in the Cedara area as a reliable, cost-effective and sustainable choice for Community Halls. Most of these structures are similar in exterior design and size, with different internal design and finish customisations.
For the Mpophomeni Community Hall, we built a structure that stands at 30 600m long, 17m wide and 4m high. Our robust steel was used to form the building skeleton and was strong enough to support all the other building components and materials. IBR roof sheeting in the colour “traffic green” was used for the roof, which has a 5-degree pitch. The deep, broad design offers excellent drainage combined with optimum weight versus load/span capabilities. We chose Alucushion for insulation as it is ideal for a sunbelt region like South Africa. This material offers excellent tear resistance, is waterproof, non-toxic and vermin proof.
These halls, with the right control, can be very effective in raising funds for the community by hiring out the space and keeping it well maintained.
