Our Story

HISTORY OF XL Structural

The XL system was developed over many years by our parent company Alpine Buildings NZ Ltd. After years of experience in the rural and industrial construction industry the team were sure that there had to be a better system than the two options on the market - which were traditional structural steel methods of 'UB or lattice portals' or lightweight roll formed frames. 

We were also sure that there had to be a better way to run the design and construction process. It needed to be practical, transparent, and most of all a good connection between the design engineers, architects, steel fabricators, installers, and client. Too often these parties work in individual silos - resulting in waste, time delays and unnecessary costs. 

The result:

  • The XL Structural Steel portal design - which predominantly uses the RHS sections see 'the XL system'
  • The XL Structural construction processes - see (turnkey vs tender) - which results in a process where design professionals and builders work together to ensure a simple, practical, and efficient outcome for you and your building requirements.
