Looking to scale manufacturing operations?
As demand increases your space requirements change and you need a building that you can grow into. Our structural steel manufacturing buildings provide easy access and maximised floor space for efficient placement of production lines, automation and dispatch processing.

We can design your building to suit your needs

Space to grow

Apply 'lean' principles to your building. By optimising spans and reducing internal columns we can design your building to suit your manufacturing processes.

Security and access planned into the design. From staff, forklifts to logistics vehicles your building needs to cater to a wide array of activities while maintaining security and safety.

No matter whether you're building for an investment property or to grow operations you also need a building that can grow easily. With experience in adapting our structures over time, we can build a structure that can be perfect for now, and still suit as you grow.

We take a fresh approach to each project, to ensure that unnecessary complexity is removed. As Albert Einstein said 'Everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler'.

Maximum clearance without knee or apex bracing

Maximum Clearance

With the XL design there is no need for obtrusive knee or apex braces giving you maximum clearance inside the building allowing a lot more flexibility and extra storage space. Using RHS portals rather than trusses also allows for maximum roof clearance.

More floor space equals more manufacturing so you need a space with fewer columns and wider spans. Our sheds give you the space you need for an increased output.
