The Project

This is an example of how drawn out some plans for a steel building can be. Miracle Span’s service remains first class, providing a helping hand at each stage of the buying process.

Emmitt Plant, a plant hire company with offices across Eastern England, contacted Miracle Span in February 2005 looking for a budget cost for a steel building to house a workshop, office and reception for a site they were purchasing in the Corby area.

Our sales consultant found out exactly what Emmitt needed the building to do and discussed possible dimensions and the features they required in the building and gave them some guide prices.

Emmitt Plant

Almost 2 years after their initial call, Emmitt Plant’s Mr Findlay contacted Miracle Span again as they had found some suitable land and were ready to move the project on. Our sales consultant sug gested Emmitt visit an existing Miracle Span building and they took up this offer, visiting a building erected by Miracle Span for Elite Plant in Ipswich. Miracle Span are so confident of the quality of their work that visits are arranged to existing buildings, with the owner’s prior consent, of course, but without the need for us to accompany them. Emmitt were so impressed with the building seen at Elite Plant that they decided Miracle Span were the steel building Company they wanted to deal with.

Emmitt decided to handle their own planning application, and placed an order with Miracle Span in May 2007, subject to planning permission, to enable engineer’s drawings and design calculations to be produced for their steel building. The land purchased was completed and planning permission received in September 2008 and Miracle Span’s Contracts Manager visited the site to discuss the erection project and check the dimensions of their concrete pad.

The Result

The new steel building was erected by Miracle Span’s professional assembly team and was ready for use a month later.

Emmitt are delighted with their building – here’s what they had to say;

“Could you please pass on my sincere thanks to the team of guys that erected our new building @ Corby, it was a pleasure to see a professional team that were well organised, hard working, worked safely & were very happy in their work”
