Greater span distances

Using structural steel allows our steel buildings to have greater spans which removes the dependency on internal load bearing walls. Open spaces can be larger meaning your steel building is without restriction!

Success Stories

Toll Office Project, Tauranga

The Toll Office building was handed just 8 weeks from start of construction. Gear Steel Buildings was able to achieve this timely turnaround by commencing work on the site prior to council consent being granted, so they were all set to get stuck into the construction as soon the consent was granted.
