3CB recently completed an unusual outdoor archery canopy steel building for the club that the company had previously supplied an indoor rifle range to.
So delighted were the club with the indoor range that they commissioned 3CB to design something different for the archery squad. So 3CB designed the steel framed building to have the security of high quality roller shutter doors when not in use and the practicality that the galvanised 3CB steel framing system gave the Designers to overshoot the front to allow, thereby allowing the Archers to practice during inclement weather.
The club have been extremely pleased with the result which has allowed extended use of the facilities. They are now fund raising for extended club house accommodation which 3CB will assist with by providing 3D concept drawings, planning services right through to supply and installation.

3CB have recently completed this interesting project for a client who had very limited space but needed to construct a classic car restoration unit behind a shop frontage.
Space was limited for the construction of the insulated steel framed building and the planning authority required a timber clad front elevation to the workshop.

A very happy Customer with neighbours admiring the end result which was comparatively easy on the eye!.

3CB have just completed a turnkey project for an East Sussex school by way of a fully fitted mechanics workshop.
The project was based around 3CB’s excellence in the design and installation of steel framed buildings – in this case designed specifically for the school’s needs.
The entire projected was undertaken by 3CB from concept drawings, groundworks, building supply and construction, sophisticated electrics (with emergency cut offs in several locations) and plumbing.
To enable easy car entry to the new facility a certain amount of rework was required to the block paved entrance yard and the whole project was completed on time and to budget.

3CB have recently been commissioned to supply an unusual insulated enclosure, incorporating steel framing sections and state of the art panels, for a highly specialised printing process incorporating some cutting edge equipment.
Limited factory space meant the detailed design of access doors at difficult junctions in the building. Space within the building was also confined so 3CB used it sophisticated 3D CAD design capabilities to incorporate all the duct work and supplies that the processes will require.
The official opening, during June, will bring in senior employees from around the world and 3CB have been lauded for their fast response and outstanding levels of quality and service.
