Auto Workshop, East Yorkshire A building specifically for the repair and maintenance of large vans and trucks was required in East Yorkshire.
Industrial Unit by CustomFITT Steel BuildingsSituated just outside the market town of Driffield in East Yorkshire, one of the main priorities for this building was the height. The height had to allow for not only the entry of a high van, but also for this van to be raised on a lift in order to access and work on the underneath.

Being in a fairly exposed location with a high height:span ratio, our building structure was calculated to include the optimum number of wall rails and roof purlins.

A full structural calculations package was provided for the customer for their quality assurances regarding the building.

Consequently providing a frame to the exact measurements that provided the best solution for the intended use of the building was no problem at all.

The Cold Rolled steel used in the manufacture of the frames of our buildings is high tensile steel making the components incredibly strong and allows relatively short sections to span large distances.

The bracketry used is folded (as opposed to a flat style used in some cold rolled buildings) and coupled with the bracketed knee braces produce an extremely strong frame, able to support the building through the harshest of weather conditions.

Strap bracing going diagonally from bottom to top corner of each bay also provides an incredible support for the loads exerted on the sides and corners of the structure.

The underside of the roof sheets are also lined with an Anti Drip condensation fleece so any condensation that does form will flow down the fibres of the fleece and into the gutter and not drip on the contents below.

With the installation of a large electrically operated roller door, access door and the finishing touches of the colour coordinating guttering, downpipes and flashings the building is ready for use.
