Precision in Design

When it comes to steel building design, one size does not fit all.

Our technical office work closely with your TotalSpan estimator to create a design that is not based on best guesses but on a thorough understanding of your project requirements.

Our team takes into consideration various factors, including your intended use of the building, building codes and regulations, and specific environmental conditions in your postcode area. This meticulous approach ensures that your steel building is not only aesthetically pleasing but also structurally sound and compliant with relevant UK standards.

Detailed Plans and Specifications

The devil is in the details, and when it comes to a steel building project, the quality of the drafting and detailing can make all the difference for a smoooth installation. TotalSpan provides you with comprehensive and detailed plans and specifications for your steel building, we are regularly complimented for their clarity and ease to understand.

Our drafting team works diligently to create accurate and clear drawings that encompass all aspects of your project, from the ground level to the ridge line. These detailed plans not only serve as a manual for construction but can also help in obtaining necessary planning permission or building control approval. With TotalSpan, you can rest assured that each aspect of your steel building is documented, leaving no room for errors or ambiguity.

Postcode Specific Customisation

Environmental conditions and building regulations can vary significantly from one postcode area to another, you might be coastal or on top of a hill. That's why TotalSpan takes pride in offering postcode specific customisation for our steel buildings.
