Wide Span Industrial Buildings
Wide Span Industrial specialises in the design and supply of pre-engineered cold rolled steel buildings suitable for commercial and light industrial applications.
What is a pre-engineered steel building?
Pre-engineering is the systematic process of converting complex and expensive structural steel building designs into simpler and more economically priced and designed steel components. These components are then batch manufactured and used multiple times throughout the project without sacrificing on the design or basic function of the building.
The end product is a reasonably priced complete structural building shell that can be finished internally to serve its required function and accessorised externally to portray a distinctive style.
Features and benefits
It is no surprise that pre-engineered buildings have grown in popularity due to their many end-user advantages. These include a low up-front investment, significantly faster construction timeframes, lower maintenance costs, the option for large clear spans with an infinite choice of layouts, their inherent strength and resistance to earthquakes and harsh climatic conditions, plus their flexibility for future expansion and growth.
An efficiently designed pre-engineered building can be lighter than conventional steel buildings by up to 30% resulting in significant savings for the build overall.
In terms of design, your building can be conceptualised and manufactured quickly and efficiently using standard design features, sections and connections that are employed multiple times. This ensures manufacturing times are 6-12 weeks depending of the frame type instead of 20-26 weeks as with a conventional design steel building. This dramatically reduces the overall cost of the project.
The erection process is streamlined in time and equipment due to the use of optimised lightweight sections that are easy to construct without the need for extensive field labour or heavy equipment. The result is a quick to deploy, efficiently designed and lower cost build.
Need a really big building?
Wide Span Industrial will work with you to help you meet your commercial projects criteria. We can, and will, expand on our pre-engineered steel building designs by offering a variety of frame types depending on the design requirements. This degree of flexibility allows the pre-engineered fabrication of steel components and erections services for larger structures such as workshops, supermarkets, roofing systems, factories, aircraft hangars ... just to name a few.
