BuildWorks Construction Inc. is a core member of the BWORXX™ Group of Companies— www.bworxx.com, integrating design-build and project management services; and specialized capabilities in environmental projects and composting aeration systems; such as the patented AirFloor® system, and MegaDome® pre-engineered structures.
A new addition to the wide range of MEGADOME® building models, the XXP profile maximizes the use of the interior space and avoids limitations due to reduced clearances near the side of the structures. Just 4 ft. inside the wall of a XXP model, the vertical clearance is already about 20 feet. CSA A660 certified.
The MEGADOME® 100+ series (available in 100’, 125’ and 140’ widths) have been expressly engineered to meet extra wide-span, and voluminous space requirements; be it for mining, bulk storage, processing, or even sports & recreation facilities.
This profile may be installed on a low-profile grade-beam, or on a higher concrete wall. The 100+ series arches are manufactured from heavy 8 gauge steel oval sections, and 36” truss-depths; providing superior load capacity for locations with high wind and snow ratings. CSA A660 certified.
The model XP MEGADOME® is the most popular with MegaDome customers as the elongated lower truss section offers up to 16 feet of interior sidewall height; which makes it an ideal selection for high-capacity vertical storage such as warehouse racking, or pallet storage, without the added cost of a high support wall. This MegaDome model is available in 7 different widths, from 33’ through to 100’. CSA A660 Certified
When good is just not good enough, and the use of the buildings subjects the structure to corrosion of the structural components—MEGADOME® now offers the exclusive HotDip+ protection. Comprehensive protection complements the hot-dip galvanization of the main structural elements with stainless steel components, and with zinc-nickel alloy fasteners— salt-spray tested in accordance with ASTM B117. HotDip+ is only solid approach to long-life building performance.
