Challenges and solutions

The fabrication bay needed to have the capability to accommodate a future overhead gantry crane, hence allowance was made in the steelwork for the gantry crane including crane stubs and runway beams. Clearance heights needed to be adequate for Pipecon machinery access and a future internal gantry crane. 

In addition, our client wanted the canopy on the outside to not show the web trusses, hence the soffit lining was used to create a better aesthetic look. We also designed sliding door openings to be high and wide enough for large machinery access. 

“I would certainly build with Central Steel Build again and certainly recommend you. The timing, the way it was put up, everything went into place nicely, it’s very structurally sound and it’s a great-looking shed. I think it’s come up a real treat.”
