There are many variables that can influence the performance of a steel building. It is therefore critical to consider a wide range of factors when designing a structure.
At THE Shed Company Sydney South West we understand that every site has its own unique attributes, which is why our steel buildings are designed in accordance with their appropriate wind region, topography, terrain, site conditions, building classification and level of importance.
When you purchase a steel building from THE Shed Company Sydney South West, you gain confidence in knowing that your shed, garage, or barn has been engineered specifically for your site.
Site Specific Engineering – How does it work?
The first component of our design process includes a comprehensive site assessment. This is where we classify the building, ascertain its level of importance, and make determinations regarding wind region, topography, terrain, and shielding.
Your shed specialist will use this information to design a steel building suitable for your site and requirements. Once a design has been finalised, a Shed Company engineer will assess and approve your project based on the supplied documentation.
THE Shed Company Sydney South West's experienced team will provide you with a detailed set of engineering documents that reference your job and site. These documents confirm that your project has been viewed and certified by a qualified engineer.
THE Shed Company Sydney South West will then forward the relevant documentation to your local council/shire for their consideration and approval.
How long does the process take?
THE Shed Company’s flexible design and engineering systems make site-specific classification a quick and seamless process. Typically we are able to provide certification within 48 hours.
How does topography influence the design process?
Although your site may be located in a low wind speed region, the placement of your shed in an elevated position may serve to dramatically increase your site’s wind speed. The increase in wind speed would need to be factored into the design of the building.
If all of this sounds a little daunting, please do not hesitate to give us a call on (02) 4647 1055 and we can answer any questions you may have.
