When it comes to constructing a durable, functional, and aesthetically pleasing industrial shed, choosing the right industrial shed builder is paramount. At McHugh Steel, we understand the importance of this decision and aim to help you make an informed choice. 

Finding a builder who can meet your specific needs can be a challenge, but with the right information, you can select a partner that will help bring your vision to life, efficiently and effectively.

The Expertise of Your Industrial Shed Builder

Experience and Specialisation

An experienced industrial shed builder will have a portfolio that showcases a variety of projects they've completed. Look for a builder who specialises in industrial sheds, as they will be familiar with the specific challenges and requirements of these types of constructions.

Quality of Materials and Construction

Steel framing

The quality of materials used in your shed construction directly impacts its durability and longevity. A reputable builder should use high-grade materials that can withstand the rigours of industrial use and the harsh Aussie weather we can experience. 

Ask potential builders about the materials they use and their construction methods to ensure they align with industry standards and your expectations.

Customisation Options

Every industrial operation is unique, with specific needs and requirements for its space. A good industrial shed builder should offer customisation options that allow you to tailor the design, size, and features of your shed to suit your business perfectly. Whether you need extra height for storage, specialised doors, or insulation for temperature control, your builder should be able to accommodate these requests.

Licensing, Insurance, and Warranty

Ensuring Your Builder is Up to the Task

It's essential to verify that your chosen industrial shed builder is fully licensed and insured. This not only protects you legally but also ensures that the builder meets the necessary standards of quality and safety. 

Check if the shed builder has:

  • QBCC license
  • HIA member
  • Master Builders Member
  • Shedsafe accredited 

Additionally, inquire about the warranty offered on their work. A confident builder will back their constructions with a robust warranty, providing you with peace of mind in the longevity of your investment.

Client Testimonials and References

One of the best ways to gauge the reliability and quality of an industrial shed builder is to hear from their past clients. Look for testimonials and reviews, and don't hesitate to ask for references. A trustworthy builder will be happy to provide these, giving you insight into their work ethic, communication, and ability to deliver projects on time and budget.

Customers often leave unbiased reviews on Google. For example, this is what our recent reviews look like

Project Management and Communication

A smooth construction process relies heavily on effective project management and clear communication. Your industrial shed builder should offer a clear project timeline, keep you informed of progress, and be readily available to address any concerns or questions you might have. This level of service ensures that your project runs smoothly from start to finish, with results that meet or exceed your expectations.


Choosing the right industrial shed builder is crucial to the success of your project. At McHugh Steel, we offer the expertise, quality, and customisation you need, backed by our commitment to excellent service and client satisfaction. 

When selecting a builder, focus on their experience, the quality and flexibility of their construction, and their ability to manage the project effectively while keeping you in the loop. With the right partner, you can achieve a functional, durable, and aesthetically pleasing industrial shed that serves your business for years to come.
