Pump Houses built the Specialised way!

Pump houses or ‘pump sheds’ as they
are Pump Housessometimes referred to are the answer for keeping your pump and electrical facilities safe and secure.

Here at Specialised Structures we can build your pump house to any specification you require and out of any materials you wish to use.

We can customise the build to meet your needs or you can choose to build and manage the project yourself with one of our construction kits.

We highly recommend building with steel because of its durability to withstand the New Zealand climate.

Our range of steel frame buildings are completely waterproof inside and
out and have superior strength qualities.

The Specialised Structure’s team inPump Houses
Christchurch
 includes father and son team
Eric and Luke Anderson. The duo have
recently built pump houses for an irrigation scheme at Sheffield, Canterbury.

The pump houses are to house all the electrical equipment/circuit boards etc., to run the pumps. Dimensions for the pump houses are 4.5m long by 3m wide by 2.8m high.

The pump houses are fully insulated with a 20mm nominal cavity system. The client is also installing heat pumps in each of them.

The framing is cold rolled steel and designed to take the heavy snow loads and wind loads which are prevalent in the environment there. They are lined with 9mm ply.

The Christchurch Specialised Structures team also took care of building the earthworks and concrete pads for the sheds and pumps.

Shed Design

Shed Design Tips from the experts at Specialised Structures

Shed Design – Customised Building Specialists is who we are, and supplying NZ pre-engineered custom designed buildings is what we do.

  1. Shed Design – Use and Placement

To help decide what size building you need, ask yourself these questions:

  • What is your shed going to be used for?
  • What will your needs be in 20 years’ time?
  • Could it end up being your retirement hobby area?
  • Where is the shed going to be placed?
  • Is the area you have big enough for your new shed?
  • Are there any Council bylaws you will need to consider on the placement of your new shed on your property?
  • If your shed is for storing machinery, have you got enough room for access and easy manouvering of machinery especially in front of the shed.
  • Simple things like building your shed away from trees will also ensure your guttering is kept free of obstructions.
  • If you are debating whether to add an extra bay now, or if you should leave it until later; keep in mind it is far more economical to do the whole shed at once because you will save on building consent fees, delivery and install.
  1. Shed Design – Size

Depending on the proposed use of the shed, the factors you should consider when designing your shed:

  • Width – is your building going to be deep enough to fit the length of the items you need to put in it? Eg; your car, ute or boat, maybe a caravan, camper of even a truck
  • Roof Height – depending on what you are going to store in your shed, you will need to ensure you have enough roof height to accommodate everything comfortably.
  • Number and size of Bays – Basically the number of bays in your building will depend of the amount of gear you need to put in it. The size and the height of the bays will depend of the size of that gear. Note: Specialised Structures can make bays of any size and height.
  • Clearspan – Do you need a clearspan building? If not it maybe more economical to have centre posts.
  • Access – Roller Doors, Personnel Doors, open front bays.
  • Door Placement – If your shed is for storing machinery, you may also want to consider traffic flow patterns inside the building to determine door placement.
  • Lighting – clear lighting, open bays, roller doors, windows.
  • Ventilation – If you are building an animal shelter, you will need to ensure livestock are kept comfortable and healthy with natural ventilation.
  1. Shed Design – Materials your shed is built out of.

Here at Specialised Structures our buildings can be designed from a wide range of materials.

Most small to medium sheds in NZ, the framing is either lightweight cold rolled steel or of timber pole construction.

The team at Specialised Structures were pioneers of the lightweight cold rolled steel building design and construction in NZ. Their knowledge and experience in this product is second to none.

Specialised Structures not only offer timber pole sheds, but they are the only company in NZ which offer pre-engineered Laminated Timber Portal Buildings.

For the Industrial and Commercial customer, as well as the above, Specialised Structures offers Structural Steel Construction along with Concrete Tiltpanels. Various fire rating systems can easily be incorporated into any of our buildings.

All Specialised Structures buildings can be clad with almost any cladding type a customer desires, to give their building the exact look they are after.

  1. Shed Design – Budget

Specialised Structures will design your building to fit your budget. Our aim is to give you the most economical building to fit your requirements.

A great way to save costs is to erect the building yourself … Specialised Structure’s kitsets are affordable and we can supply you, or your builder, a construction pack with everything you need.  You have full control over your kitset building project.   

Remember Specialised Structures has a large range of building types and sizes, and they can customise any building to any size and look you require.

For construction companies Specialised Structures can offer a ‘take-off the labour cost’ of the project hence reducing set costs.

A recent example of a very happy customer who purchased a Specialised Structure’s Kitset Shed Construction Pack is Dallas Green from Coventry Products Ltd.

“I got Specialised Structures to design our factory building to suit my needs, and all council consents went through without question.

I bought the kit from Specialised Structures, and used local builders Keating Construction, who had never erected a steel shed, another local concrete man, Andrew Carey did the floor. Prestige Roofing Matamata did the Cladding.

Tom Keating found the instructions simple to follow and everything went up without a hitch.

So my thoughts are nothing but positive, the Specialised Structures kitset sheds system works simply and well.”

Specialised Structures builds Winery Extension for Kiwi Spirit Distillery

Kiwi Distillery

Specialised Structures offers a wide range of building options and a new winery extension for Kiwi Spirit Distillery is another example of quality construction within their commercial portfolio.

The Specialised Structures team in Tasman led by owner Lance Robinson is currently building a winery extension for Kiwi Spirit Distillery.  Lance says “We are building for Kiwi Spirits, they are distillery, making high end plonk and health tonics”. Sounds great to us!

The winery extension for Kiwi Spirit Distillery is taking place in Motupipi, Golden Bay, and is part of the new development for the company.  The distillery is located at the northern most reaches of the South Island of New Zealand between two spectacular National Parks, the Abel Tasman National Park and the Kahurangi National Park.

In the heart of the bay, nestled down a lane off the main street of the quaint town of Takaka, you will come across the unique Kiwi Spirit Distillery. It all began in a beloved old building, lovingly restored by owner, Terry Knight. Due to growth, this new purpose built distillery will share much of the same charm as the original building.

From humble beginnings to adventurous enterprising, Knight has developed a range of world class, hand crafted products including Waitui Honey Malt Whiskey, Murderer’s Bay Gold Rum (now in the capable hands of Village Distillery), Tangelo and Lime Liqueurs, Fruit Schnapps, and ‘Silver Cloud’ – New Zealand’s first Blue Agave Spirit.

These artisan products use only the finest ingredients and mana filled water from the Te Waikoropupu aquifer. You can sample their fantastic range of products and discover for yourself the goodness that comes in a glass. Our tip: enjoy it over ice.

We look forward to seeing the finished results of the new extension and will keep you posted.  You can view the distillery’s website here.

If you have a commercial, rural, or residential project, don’t hesitate to contact Lance and the Specialised Structure’s Tasman team today.  They can provide you with an estimate of your building project and experienced advice on all aspects of building.

Need a new Shed? – 5 things you need to consider first!

Before you start building your new shed ask yourself these five questions.  You will be so glad you did!

1. Where is the site location of the shed going to be?
• This is a really important question, and one we will always ask you. We do need to know the location of your shed before designing the structure; however, if you are unsure, an approximate area will be fine during the quoting process.
• When we are designing your new shed, we will take into account the wind speeds and direction, and snow loadings at your site, ensuring you of a long-lasting investment.

2. What size do I need? Kitset Sheds
• As with any large investment, you want to be sure that you are getting exactly what you need and want. Being able to customise the shed height is very important if you have oversize vehicles or machinery to house.
• Specialised Structure’s buildings can be built to your specific needs with custom heights, bay sizes and unlimited lengths.
• It is generally more cost effective to build the shed to your needs in the first place, rather than find out down the line you need more storage space. Remember, no-one ever says they built a shed that was too big!

3. How can I future-proof my design? Drive through shed
• When designing your new shed, you should ensure it is going to suit your future needs as well as your current requirements.
• You will need to determine the minimum storage area required for the equipment that needs to be housed. If you plan on keeping equipment hitched overnight, you will require more space than the minimum to allow for movement of machinery and vehicles. You may also want to consider traffic flow patterns inside the building to determine door locations if required.
• As height is a relatively cheap way to upgrade your shed, we recommend you go higher than what you think you need. This means you’ll be well set up for the possibility of larger machines in the future.
• Make sure you take into account any plans for business expansion or resale.
• A clear span design future-proofs your shed as there are no poles, giving you more choice for storage and greater freedom of movement.

4. What is your new shed going to be used for?

• This question is often one of the first we will ask you; and it’s not just because we’re nosy! The answer to this question has a lot of effect on the design of the shed, and we need to make sure you are getting a shed that works for you.
• What are you using the shed for? Obviously if it’s animals, you will need natural ventilation (see Farm Sheds and Free-Stall Cow Barns). If it’s expensive machinery or a vehicle collection, you will want a full lock-up. If you have something oversized to store like a boat, harvester or horse trailer, we need to make sure we allow enough height and larger-than-standard doors.

5. Kitset or Installed? aircraft hangars
• We sell kitset sheds throughout NZ and you can get a kitset from one of our merchants located near you.
• Specialised Structure’s sheds are designed to be fast and easy to build, minimising disruption to your daily operations.

You can call our team on 0508 787 828 if you have a question that we can help with.
