Steel Church Building in Summerland, BC, Canada
Sunward Steel Buildings, Inc. was honored to fabricate and supply this pre-engineered steel building for a client in Summerland, British Columbia, Canada, in August of 2002.
Since then, it has served as the community’s Summerland Alliance Church, which hosts weekly Sunday services and is a member of the Christian Missionary Alliance of Canada. Equal parts attractive and practical, the steel building combines the supreme functionality of a metal building with the aesthetics and accommodations of a traditional church building. Spacious, low-maintenance and designed to last the long haul, the church gives members of the surrounding religious community a safe, secure space to congregate and worship.
