Our Innovative Solution

The design and construction of this facility were completed in a short timeframe, with 5 weeks from the placement of the order by the customer to the delivery of the kit on site. TechSpan’s Smart Build System allows us to manufacture your shed kit faster than other companies, without compromising on construction quality or features.

The facility was constructed using a full structural steel frame, and cladding. Structural steel is usually a lot thicker and stronger than lower-cost purlin sheds, which makes it ideal for situations where there is machinery and equipment moving around within the structure. If someone accidentally bumps into a column, the extra strength and durability of structural steel means it will be less likely to bend. Find out more about the difference between purlin and structural steel here.

On the exterior of the facility, TechSpan incorporated a large cantilever awning for added weather protection.This project also included multiple smaller structures for pumphouses and other outbuildings within a single contract, and all structured to work for the full site.
