As your business grows and becomes established, so does its accommodation needs, whether this means securing adequate work, storage or office space. The need to move into a larger space is often linked to a need to increase productivity and heighten efficiency.
If the wrong decision is made, it is very easy to experience a negative impact on the cash flow.
When comparing options, it is worth considering the scope a steel shed offers in terms of increasing the business’s productivity.
Here are 8 immediate benefits that a standard or bespoke shed can offer your business operation:
1. All Weather Working
Protection from the extremes of the WA climate means that many businesses can continue with daily activities, no matter the mood of the weather outside.
2. Constant Lighting
Good lighting enables activities to be continued in even the worst storms or into the evening on the shortest days. With businesses that involve shift work, customized lighting means evening and night shift scan work without problems.
3. Protection for Vehicles
Unlike factory buildings, steel sheds can include wide bay doors that admit vehicles and are large enough to admit 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 over use 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’s 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, enabling 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.
Freedom from the effects of weather or dust will preserve its condition and value, while the shed can be secured and alarmed against intruders and theft.
