Our Buildings Add Pride to Baldwin County Sports Program

Vulcan Steel Structures scored big with a $6.9 million custom gymnasium complex for Elberta High School in Elberta, Alabama. Government officials, school representatives and students cut the ribbon on the almost 30,000-square-foot, multi-functional space on August 28.

The Lady Warrior volleyball team had the honor of the first game in the 900-seat gym the week prior to the ribbon-cutting. “It’s real special to start a new season, but a new season in a new gym is really exciting,” Volleyball Coach Madison Wichterman told Fox10 News reporter Hal Scheurich. “There was a lot more energy in the gym than normal, and I hope that continues throughout the season.”

In addition to the gym, the complex is comprised of athletic offices, meeting rooms, training facilities, a football locker room, a concession area and more. This investment benefits not only students and student athletes, but also school employees and Warrior fans who will envy the structures and see the pride and value Baldwin County has brought to this project.

“It’s all about school pride and being grateful for what we have,” raved Nathan McDaniel, Athletic Director and head football coach, in the Fox10 news feature. It’s “been a blessing for sure,” he said.

For the building complex, Vulcan provided 24-gauge Kynar SL216 roof panels and Kynar PBR wall panels.

Not only is he a long-term employee, but Joey is also a hometown boy, growing up in Adel, Georgia, where Vulcan is headquartered. As he travels around the region, he marvels at all the buildings that he had a hand in fabricating. He’s proud of his role.

Joey has come a long way since his first job, bagging groceries at Harvey’s Supermarket. Today, he is in his ninth position at Vulcan. He’s been a plasma operator, a logistics coordinator, a plant supervisor and so much more before assuming the assistant plant manager role a year ago. He relishes being a leader at Vulcan. He enjoys how Vulcan makes “what seems impossible, possible.”
