Designing And Building Your Factory

What Makes Our Factory Buildings So Unique?

Designing And Building Your Steel Building

We design new factory structures and modify existing structures (and turnkey projects) for any application to the requirement of our customers, using internal expertise, structural, mechanical and civil design consultants. Working closely with Architects and Engineers we provide you with the best possible advice for a full and comprehensive service from design to completion of your steel building project. No matter what type of steel building you're looking for - large, small or anything in between - we can offer you a host of benefits. And we'll also ensure that you're satisfied with your building experience.

Competitive pricing, efficiency, quality workmanship and on-time construction are basic requirements for the success of steel building projects.

Economy is gained not only by savings in steel mass through careful design, but also by the adoption of simple, efficient construction details that can be processed in the workshop at minimum cost.

It must be stressed that while the objective is the attainment of a greater degree of economy, the cost-saving techniques used do not in any way allow for a reduction in the required level of quality of a steel structure. 

Steel Building Roof Pitch


The slope of a steel building's roof is expressed by a ratio called "roof pitch," which indicates the number of mm a roof rises vertically for every 1M it runs horizontally. The choice of roof pitch is important for several reasons. It will affect the size, the look, the performance, and the cost of your building.

Roof Pitch: Pros and Cons

There are advantages and disadvantages to consider with both higher and lower roof pitches. Though they add to the cost of the building, higher-pitched roofs increase both the total cubic metres as well as the maximum inside clearance for relatively little money. If you can take advantage of the extra space above the eaves, it is an added bonus. Also, the extra volume lessens heat buildup in non air-conditioned buildings. Higher pitched roofs shed rain and snow more quickly and are less likely to leak. Finally, a higher-pitched roof is more visible, something you should consider when deciding between a coloured or standard roof.

Low-pitched roofs also have some definite advantages in certain situations. First of all, they require less material and therefore cost slightly less. A lower pitch also reduces the total cubic metres, making it easier and less expensive to heat and cool the steel building. Because a low-pitched roof is less visible, there is little reason to spend extra money for coloured panels. Finally, some people just prefer a lower profile for their building.

Our expertise extends to commercial and industrial buildings, warehouse buildings, horse barns, church buildings, storage buildings, farm buildings, and more. Our pre-engineered industrial I-beam buildings are the most superior prefabricated steel buildings in design, quality and durability, and they're perfect for a wide variety of applications.

Our expertise extends to commercial, industrial, government and institutional buildings, and includes such well known South African companies as:








  • De Beers Consolidated Mines (Industrial Diamond Division)

  • First National Bank

  • ABSA (UBS)

  • Pick 'n Pay

  • Valeur

  • United Cricket Board

  • Standard Bank

  • Seeff Property Group,

  • To name just a few.















The world-wide major trend in present-day factory construction continues away from handcrafting at the building site towards on-site assembly of ever larger, more integrated components manufactured away from the site. Another characteristic of contemporary building, related to this trend, is the greater amount of dimensional coordination; that is, buildings are designed and components manufactured in multiples of a standard module, which drastically reduces the amount of cutting and fitting required on the building site.

This does not mean that structural specifications suffer in any way - it simply has the effect of containing your factory building costs, which we can then pass onto YOU, the customer.

Normally, standard module sizes are as below:

Please note: 

Span: refers to the width of the building (the end of the building). Like the photo with the tractor above indicates.

The height of the column means wall height. IOW where the roof meets the wall.

And the length is determined in bays - with each bay being 5m wide. Consequently, the length can be as long as you may require.

  • 9m span x 3m high column x any multiple of 5m

  • 12m span x 3.6m high column x any multiple of 5m   

  • 15m span x 3.6m high column x any multiple of 5m      

  • 18m span x 3.6m high column x any multiple of 5m      

  • 20m span x 6m high column x any multiple of 5m      

  • 25m span x 6m high column x any multiple of 5m

  • 30m span x 6m high column x any multiple of 5m

Click here to see some sections (parts) of a typical drawing to show what we mean about bay spacing at 5m each as well as width (or span) and the height.

Don't get us wrong here: these 9m to 30m spans are the most economical spans; clear spans of up to 240m are possible.

What Makes Our Factory Buildings So Unique?

  • All factory building projects are custom made allowing the best quality control at all levels of the job. And the buildings are developed and designed locally, hence they're tailor-made for African environmental conditions. 

  • Our factory building packages are all precut and predrilled - ready to be erected. This ease of erection results in enormous savings in on-site factory construction time. For instance, no welding on site will be needed.

  • Our prefabricated buildings are not only easy to assembly, but are designed to give you years of maintenance free service at the most affordable price. 

  • All our factory buildings are manufactured according to Engineers specifications using only A-Grade materials and only the finest steel, bearing the approval of the South African Bureau of Standards and meeting the Bureau's exacting demands, is used. 




  • Our quality assurance program ranks with the best in the country and means your factory building meets the highest standards.

  • 100% usable interior space with no floor or ceiling obstructions.

  • Sleek contemporary appearance. Easy interior to finish or insulate.

 We seek to deliver consistent perfection and quality in the realm of all our factory kits.

Try us: you may just experience enormous benefits.
