Industrial Storage, East Yorkshire (Part 1) Florida Marquees (Yorkshire) Ltd. are located in Driffield, East Yorkshire and we provided a solution to a problem they were having thanks to the successful growth of their business – the need for additional storage space with an extension to their existing building.
Industrial Lean To by CustomFITT Steel BuildingsThe existing building was now not only too small for the needs of this steadily growing business, but was also looking very tired with cladding that had not had any attention for many, many years.

It was decided that not only would we provide a lean to extension to provide the much needed additional storage, we would also re clad the entire length of the building to give it a deserved make over.
Industrial Lean To by CustomFITT Steel BuildingsThe makeover would need to include the cladding, gutters, downpipes and the trims around a number of windows and access doors.

Whilst removing the old cladding we also took the opportunity to install a layer of rock wool insulation sandwiched between the new cladding and the internal liner. Fortunately the brick work was still in a good condition so didn’t require any attention.
Industrial Lean To by CustomFITT Steel BuildingsThe new ‘lean to’ offered 3 additional bays of covered storage, ideal for the customers’ requirements.

Using cold rolled steel as the frame members, all the frame components are fully galvanised and the cladding sheets are hot dipped galvanised, meaning the maintenance on this building will be virtually nil for many years to come.

The bracketry used is folded (as opposed to a flat style used in some cold rolled buildings) and produces an extremely strong frame, able to support the building through the harshest of weather conditions.
Industrial Lean To by CustomFITT Steel BuildingsThe walls of the existing building were finished in plastisol coated Goosewing Grey steel cladding that matched with the new ‘lean to’ and the trims, flashings and rainwater goods in black to provide a striking and aesthetically pleasing contrast.

The underside of the roof of the new extension was finished with an anti drip condensation fleece so that if any moisture was to form it wouldn’t drip on the contents of the building.

The makeover was complete.

“The makeover was a success! The old building looks great and the addition of the lean to make a massive difference for us for storage. It has really smartened up our yard. Really pleased with the job CustomFITT have done, from start to finish very professional. Would I recommend them to anyone else? Of course I would!”
