Taupo, New Zealand, March 2020
In March 2020 Central Steel Framing constructed a 625m² Heritage Barn in Taupo. The client came to us with their barn concept and together we developed and engineered a custom designed barn. The light gauge steel barn was built using portal frame construction. The manufacturing and installation of the barn was quick. The steel was assembled in the workshop and erected onsite. Only two truckloads were needed to transport the profiles/pre-assembled panels to the site. It only took 24 hours to install the portals and external walls onsite.
There are many benefits of building with light gauge steel. The client decided to build with light gauge steel because it is accurate, fast and economical.
