Why choose our steel buildings?

Our steel buildings cost approximately 30% less than traditionally constructed buildings as they are pre-engineered to your exact dimensions at the factory. This bespoke nature makes your building longer lasting and very easy to maintain.

How safe is a steel frame?

Unlike wooden frames, steel formations do not change under influence of weather or any other outside conditions. They are engineered to meet the demands of weather conditions, building codes and custom designs. Your steel building will remain in great condition for years.

How easy is it to customize my design?

Our steel buildings can be fully bespoke and customized to meet your particular requirements. Any changes whether its windows, roller or personal access doors, skylights, custom openings, a lean-to or simply a change of colour, we can implement very quickly and easily.

What colours are available?

There are many colours available for your building and we can use more than one in your design. Please take a look at our colour chart for more detail.

I am not sure what style of building I need?

All we need to know is your building length, width, height and use. If you can identify your building requirements i.e. a shop, a garage, a warehouse or storage facility etc we can help you with everything else. Just give us a call.

What steps are involved in the construction of a steel building?

Once we have designed your building with you, engineered drawings are created based on this and local building codes. Your steel building is then pre-engineered at the factory and shipped to your construction site. All parts are pre-drilled and ready to be assembled. After the concrete foundation is poured, construction begins.

 

What about Delivery?

Normal delivery times are three to four weeks after order confirmation. If you have a particular date in mind however, let us know and we will work with you to ensure it happens on time. We can deliver a steel building anywhere in the UK.

What is a Portal Frame structure?

All of our steel buildings are portal frame buildings which simply means they are built in bays. The longer your building is the more bays it will have. Our builder will construct two portal sections using two posts and two rafters which are joined by brackets, thus forming a portal. The two sections are then joined together using horizontal purlins forming the bay. Steel buildings constructed this way are very strong and durable. It also makes them inexpensive and easy to erect.
