you need permit approval will depend on your local permit office, the size of
your building and where your site is located. If you do need approval from your
town, the drawings that we will send you are exactly what you will need to
present to them in terms of your structure. They are certified engineered
drawings that will be stamped by an engineer who is licenced to practice in
your specific area.
Every Norsteel building – whether it’s a DIY project or a shopping mall, is
custom-designed to meet or exceed the building loads for its location. Our
reputation depends on it. Click here to read our blog on building codes and loads.
absolutely need a foundation! This is an all-steel building. Just because it’s
a DIY project doesn’t mean that it is a temporary structure. You have several
options in terms of which foundation system you will use – many of our
customers pour a simple concrete slab, but the foundation you need will depend
on what you are using the building for and where you are erecting it.
kit will arrive on a flatbed truck. With
good planning, we can fit 2 and sometimes 3 EasyBuild structures on each
flatbed and we do our very best to fill each truckload. This keeps our cost
down and we pass those savings on to our e-commerce customers. Well before shipping day arrives, customers are
contacted with specific instructions regarding the delivery of their Norsteel
building package. The truck driver will call you so you have an accurate time
of arrival. It is imperative that they ensure that the truck has clear access
to the job site. This means that the truck must be able to get in and out
of the site unencumbered.
EasyBuild is far less complicated. The building components will arrive on a
flatbed trailer and will be in one large bundle, banded together. Once
the band is broken, the skid can easily be off-loaded with a fork-lift. The
skid has 5 separate layers to off load, one at a time from the top down.
The heaviest piece will be the hardware box weighing approximately 4000lbs.
This wooden box is 22‘long, 3‘high and 4‘wide. The 4 remaining small
bundles will be significantly lighter, weighing from 1500 to 2000 lbs
Part of the beauty of
the EasyBuild is the minimization of heavy equipment required. Here too, is an
opportunity for savings: it is possible for customers to off-load the EasyBuild
by hand. Once the banding has been cut with a very strong pair of metal
cutters, the wooden crate must be opened, and the entire building can be
off-loaded in approximately 1 hour by a team of 5 or 6.
your delivery date, we will send you a packing list for inventory purposes. Once
the truck has arrived on-site, the truck driver will take photographs of the
load for comparison purposes. You should take pictures too. Please, also take
inventory of all components. Since
all parts are clearly labelled, you will be able to inventory all components
and ensure that they have been delivered. In the unlikely event that any
parts are missing or damaged, please take photographs and contact us
immediately so that appropriate corrections can be made without delay.
