Do I need planning permission for my steel building ?
More often than not you will, you can contact your local planning office to confirm. If you need help with the application, we can provide that service.
Is a cold rolled steel building classed as temporary ?
Although one of the advantages of cold rolled buildings is the ability to dismantle with ease, it is classed as a permanent structure.
How long does it take to manufacture a steel building ?
We aim to deliver your building within 3-4 weeks from receipt of order. Delivery is to the front of the property only, unless there is sufficient turning area for the delivery truck to exit your property.
Are structural calculations provided with steel buildings ?
Structural calculations are available to support your Building Warrant application for a small fee – on a project by project basis. This service is FREE when using our Architectural services.
What colours are steel buildings available in ?
The colour options offered online cover 90-95% of the demand we experience, however if you require a specific colour not listed we can normally source. Please note that provision of colours not listed in our standard online palette will, in most cases, result in an increase in cost and lead times.
Can doors & windows be positioned anywhere on a steel building ?
We are able to meet your specific needs for door & window positions however to keep costs down we try and work with you to ensure the positions are located within our preferred standard steelwork positions.
Are cold rolled steel buildings easy to erect ?
The fact that all of our buildings are supplied as individual components, rather than factory fabricated complete rafters or columns, mean our materials are easier to handle and erect. We also provide a number of features to make the assembly safe, simple and effective.
What are your payment terms ?
Payment terms vary from cash and deposit upfront with balance payable 10 days prior to delivery or by using our Bonded Order Scheme or Finance. Examples below :-
40% deposit of total Building price on ordering kit, balance payable 10 working days prior to delivery, unless noted otherwise.
All money payable on completion of works, unless noted otherwise.
Other Payment Options
1. On larger orders we offer Purchasers the opportunity of using our Bonded Order Scheme facility which consists of a legally binding Advanced Purchase Agreement whereby the Customer can lodge agreed funds with the NatWest Bank until their bespoke building arrives on site. The Customer in return for lodging their funds will receive a Bond from the NatWest Bank and monies are released only when the Contract to deliver your building to site is fulfilled. It is a means of providing comfort to Customers and Clients that they will receive the goods they have ordered and for which they have paid for. In the unlikely event the building doesn’t get delivered as per the Advanced Purchase Agreement you get a 100% refund of ALL monies paid.
Note : The agreement is direct between the Customer and our Supplier’s parent Company SIG Group plc.
2. In the unlikely event of any disputes there is an Independent Arbitration Panel comprising 3No. Construction Industry experts to resolve the dispute.
3. We now also offer Finance terms for your building through our Supplier’s parent Company SIG and Sancus where 30 days credit can be offered for a finance fee of 1% of the payment value or 60 days credit for a finance fee of 2%. Sancus will typically process the finance facility within 48 hours and if rejected a cash up front option will still be available. Only suitable for Limited Companies, not individuals or sole traders.
Please ask for further details on any of the above.
