Site Specific Engineering
Every building and its location are unique; therefore every steel building must be designed to meet the appropriate wind region and site conditions. Such site conditions that need to be considered include topography, terrain, building classification and level of importance.
Site Specific Engineering? What's this?
Every steel kit building from THE Shed Company building is specifically designed and engineered for the site at which the building will be constructed. Site specific engineering is a set of engineering documents that are provided by our engineer exclusively for your site. These are your assurance and peace of mind that the engineer has seen and certified your project.
During the design process an assessment of your site's wind region, topography, terrain, shielding, the level of importance of the building and the building classification will take place. Using this information, THE Shed Company design specialist will determine the correct wind speed of your site, and design the building accordingly.
Same Site or Different Site?
The exact location on your site where your building will be erected is critical. Your site may be located in a region that has a low wind speed, but the placement of your shed on top of a hill may increase your building’s site wind speed quite significantly. This in turn would alter the design of your building. We need to know exactly where you intend to build.
The Approval Process
THE Shed Company engineer then reviews the information provided. Once assessed and approved, your site specific certification will be passed back to your local store who you have been working with. They will then forward the site specific certification and engineering to you to enable council/shire approval.
How Long Does it Take?
THE Shed Company's innovative design software ensures this is a speedy process. In most cases, site specific certification can be provided within 48 hours.
