Project overview

Challenges and solutions

Our client wanted to install their own riding surface in both the arenas. This meant that the installer needed to build the footings to be 400mm above the site level. This would give our client sufficient depth to install the surface without compromising clearance heights inside the space.  

“The team at Central Steel Build have been terrific, they’re really easy to deal with. We wanted a specific arched roof, and they were able to accommodate that. My husband is fairly fanatical about certain things and the shed has fulfilled all that we wanted. I couldn’t speak more highly about Central Steel Build and it was done really quickly, so we bought another one!”
