11M HIGH BAY STORAGE WAREHOUSE
3CB were commissioned to obtain planning and undertake a total turnkey solution for this prestigious group. The group had to vacate its previous storage facility due to a housing project and establish a very large new store in a comparatively short period. The building itself at 27m x 47m x 11m was installed after demolition of an existing aged facility that was neither tall enough nor water tight. 3CB’s galvanised hot rolled steel solution was designed precisely to the clients specification to achieve a high level of racking density and thereby maximise use of the floor area. After completion 3CB installed a sophisticated automated lighting system and fire alarm. 3CB completed the project to the requested time frame and the client was delighted with our overall quality of performance and of the building also.

WATER TREATMENT PUMPING
3CB recently undertook the design, supply and hazardous installation of a complex air entrainment building within a very large waste water treatment facility in the East Midlands. Time lines and working methodologies were tight. Working for a well-known and respected national main contractor on this project, and the successful completion of the work undertaken by 3CB, has led to further significant project work since - including new build and refurbishment work.
COMPRESSOR HOUSE BUILDING
This compressor house, within a food manufacturing plant, naturally required a significant louvered area to allow incoming air for the compressors. The Client wished for a ‘built –up’ insulation system for the cladding. Comprising two separate sheets (inner white lining sheet and exterior light grey plasticol sheet in this instance) of materials with a spacing system between and the space filled with non-combustible Rockwool or similar. This is a less popular choice as the majority of your Clients call for a composite pre-manufactured insulated panel system. But 3CB can readily cater for either option. Unusually perhaps the Clients wished for the new oil free air compressor to be on display behind the aluminium glazed front to ensure such critical plant (vital in this prestigious high volume food manufacturing facility) weren’t hidden and forgotten and not maintained to the very highest of standards.

Industrial Steel Buildings
Three Counties Steel Buildings has succeeded in becoming one of the UK market leaders in its field by matching and exceeding the requirements of the Industrial, Equestrian, Agricultural, Leisure, Educational and Commercial market sectors, with the need to ensure the design and manufacture of high quality and associated products, delivered and correctly and safely constructed on time with the very minimum of disruption to day to day trading.
Consequently we consider strong communications with our potential customers paramount and we ensure our trained Sales Staff assist with cost effective design, without over specifying whilst fully understanding client expectations in terms of the steel building specification, time scales, planning constraints, working/construction environment etc.
Our dedicated Contracts Management Team work closely with our Customers setting out timing plans and ensuring a timely and safe process throughout. Whether the requirement is a full Turnkey package incorporating groundworks, steel building installation and fit out or the simple supply of a prefabricated steel building 'kit' for the Customer to self construct.
The result of Three Counties Steel Buildings commitment to total service of the very highest standard is that we have many, many repeat customers not only from within the small to medium sized business community but also many blue chip companies, Private and Public Sectors Organisations, National Contractors, Educational Facilities etc - an important factor when considering a large investment in a new building and the implications upon the future of the business or organisation.
We monitor our success but requesting completion of a Customer Satisfaction Questionnaire for each and every project or 'Supply Only' building we undertake – actively encouraging completion by offering retail vouchers or charitable donations for completed forms.
This feedback is used as part of our Continuous Improvement Programme to ensure the best gets better!
We have a range of offerings to suit differing markets and requirements:-
Firstly a cold rolled solution designed using state of the art design software that links electronically with the manufacturing facility to provide seamless transfer of data to produce a highly cost effective product range aimed at the smaller to medium sized steel building.
Technically this product incorporates tough galvanised structural steel framing sections to give: -
- Single clear spans of over 25 metres (65') plus the option for valley gutters for yet wider applications.
- Eaves heights of up 7 metres (23') and more
- And, thanks to our portal frame design, as long or as short as our customers require.
Alternatively we offer a more traditional hot rolled steel frame solution that is applicable to the larger projects. Equally durable and available with either painted or hot dipped galvanised structural steel members.
Whichever solution is applicable we offer a truly vast range of finishes including heavy duty Plasticol (a tough and durable plastic coating with a leather grain effect), Polyester and a selection of premium grade finishes which we find are often specified for the more prestigeous facilities. All of these finishes are available in insulated or un-insulated format to a huge range of standards, giving a long lasting, hard wearing and attractive finish to any new investment.
All of highly sophisticated design systems allows for easy future expansion as we retain details on all of our projects, making the addition of further bays very easy and error proof.
- Our options include: -
- Planning and Building Regulations Service
- Insulated or Un-Insulated buildings large or small
- Main access doors (roller, concertina, sectional and sliding) of up to 20 metres wide and 8 metres high - insulated and un-insulated.

- Skylights (single skin or double skinned cavity for insulation) in the roof to give natural daylight and reduce power consumption,
