As your business grows and establishes itself, so does the need for space. From storage solutions to office space, having enough room to run your business properly is a constant challenge.

The need to move into a larger space is often linked to a need to increase productivity and efficiency. It's a big decision that has important implications for your cash flow.

When comparing options, it is worth considering the scope a steel shed offers in terms of increasing your business’ productivity.

Here are 8 immediate benefits that a standard or bespoke shed can offer your business:

  1. All Weather Working
    Protection from the extremes of the WA climate means that many businesses can continue with their daily activities, regardless of the weather.
  2. Constant Lighting
    Consistent lighting means your staff can work regardless of the lighting conditions outside. With businesses that involve shift work, customised lighting means evening and night shifts can work without visibility problems.
  3. Protection for Vehicles
    Unlike factory buildings, steel sheds can include wide bay doors that admit vehicles and are large enough to accommodate equipment. These are then protected from the weather and yard traffic, and if necessary can be worked on in a workshop environment.
  4. Customised Design
    The shed can be designed to address the needs of your operation, whether it’s agricultural, wholesale, or industrial.
  5. Set Up for Work Processes
    The interior layout of the shed can be set-up to suit your production processes, improving time and motion, plus overall efficiency.
  6. Energy Efficiency
    The inclusion of solar panels, natural ventilation and roof water collection free your operation from concerns about electricity overuse or water wastage, enabling faster production.
  7. Flexible Space
    A shed offers a multipurpose environment with the flexibility to meet, change and grow with your business’ needs.
    One area can be dedicated to storage, another to production or maintenance, and another to vehicular access. If required, an internal office can be installed, allowing administrative functions to operate in close proximity with production.
  8. Superior Storage
    A steel shed provides a storage space for wholesale inventory, equipment parts, agricultural equipment - in fact, just about anything that can be moved through the loading bay. It can also be secured and alarmed against intruders and theft.
