Challenges and solutions

When building over an existing arena, there are always challenges to not damage the riding surface and fencing. This is something our installers worked carefully on to minimise the impact.

“In 2017 I was diagnosed with Melanoma. After numerous operations and scans, I was cleared by September and it was at this point, that my husband decided to very kindly get me out of the sun. We contacted Central Steel Build who did all the plans and the construction in a no-fuss, no-stress manner. The building went up in just one week and my life has never been the same — my only regret is not doing it decades ago.”
