An Explanation Of The Shed Building Process
Building your shed can be quite an extended and stressful process, especially for bigger projects. However we can break this process down into a simplified streamline process of 8 steps when working with Central Steel Build. These steps are listed below.
Having a consultation with an industry specific sales representative is the start of your journey. We will do our best to arrive at the best building solution according to your needs. All of our jobs are customized to our clients specifications.
After arriving on a plan for your building we will conduct a free on-site inspection and survey. The purpose of this visit is to assess your shed site in accordance with things like access, drainage etc.
Next is the design and planning of your shed. Our drafting team will focus on creating a design of shed that meets all your specific requirements and exceeds your expectations in quality.
After completing the design we move on to the legal side of Building Permits and Council Approvals. We are registered builders offer to take care of your Building Permit as a complimentary service. However this service is only applicable for rural and domestic buildings and we do not look after Planning Permits.
Engineering is the next stage of the building process. Our engineers will finalise all details down to each individual component. These will be drawn up and sent to be laser cut for manufacture.
Step 6 is when your shed is manufactured locally in our Kyneton factory. The workshop team work diligently to ensure attention to every detail on every project. We operate with LEAN manufacturing to ensure workshop conditions to be clean, orderly, neat and safe 100% of the time.
Now your shed is ready to be constructed on-site. We have a set of high quality installation teams which ensure your shed is erected safely and quickly. During this stage your project manager will keep you informed with install dates etc.
Finally we will hand over your building to you with a 12 month structural and workmanship guarantee. If you ever need to contact us in regards to your building we will be happy to assist in any way.
