XXL SHEDS® provides and efficient, fit for purpose building for the council to triple its workshop area. The scope provided to XXL SHEDS® was difficult to achieve as it had to marry into an existing building with a low pitch gable roof but still provides the cost effective nature of a cold form steel design.
XXL SHEDS® was approached by its client in south east Queensland to design a suitable workshop facility, custom design to suit the needs of the council, whilst fitting a design envelope that joins an existing building. XXL SHEDS was able to meet the brief and in the process design and patent a new beam that was able to span 15m using traditional cold form section.
