Free span up to 100 m

Maximise the space for your operations

With no inside columns, free span buildings have more floor space and an unobstructed view. This means a neat setup with a flexible and well-organized shop floor that is easy to manage. Functional and efficient buildings combined with neatness and orderliness on the shop floor leads to happy workers and supervisors, which generates increased productivity. The strength and durability of steel make it the material of choice for clear span structures, and at Astron we can realize clear spans up to 100 meters. When the maximum amount of interior room to operate efficiently is required, clear span steel buildings are the answer.

Ventilation solutions

Effective control of the temperature, humidity, and air purity

Do you need a specific moisture and humidity level inside your building due to the nature of the goods stored? Your building needs to be designed, built and operated so that vulnerable materials do not get wet, and damp materials do not dry out quickly, while successfully providing an appropriate quantity and quality of outdoor air, lower energy costs and easier maintenance.

We provide a natural ventilation solution to deliver fresh air into the building; if you need an additional ventilation system, we can provide the supporting platforms for the HVAC units, ventilation ducts etc.

Adjacent facilities

Adjacent facilities such as eating spaces, restrooms and smoking areas greatly impact the work performance of the workers. Storage space is also required, storing raw materials as well as finished products on various racks and shelves.

Corrosion protection

Enhance the safety and performance of your steel structures

For specific processes with aggressive emissions, there may be corrosion problems that require appropriate answers. A special corrosion protection system can be provided for the enhanced performance of your building.

Conveyors and cranes

Gain efficiency with a building tailor-made to accommodate moving unit load systems

Process automation is increasingly becoming a reality in production facilities. In the case of heavy loads or facilities with a high degree of automation, suitable handling systems such as conveyors and cranes may be needed. We can supply the appropriate structural elements in order to optimally coordinate the shop flow at all times.

A complete building system

Meet the specific needs of manufacturing facilities

Astron has developed a building system that assembles perfectly and can also be combined in a multitude of variations to meet the specific needs of manufacturing facilities.

For example, it is important to focus on making the shop floor spaces functional and efficient, while providing a safe and comfortable environment for the workers. This increases productivity and control, reduces operating costs, and improves customer service.

Production buildings also have to maintain a corporate image and provide for worker satisfaction. The building image and aesthetics, landscaping, and worker safety and comfort have become important issues in competitive real estate markets, all contributing to the success of a production building.

    The industrial building that best adapts to your needs

    # Ingenious design
    Your project should start long before the construction phase. Our team provides you with different variants of building solutions, considering structural optimization, energy efficiency, natural lighting and minimized construction cost, using 3D models and BIM. Our design & build approach is reinforced by our pragmatic approach based on our experience as engineers, manufacturer and assembler in terms of functionalities and cost control. All Astron products are tailor-made, based on proven pre-engineered solutions worked out within the large group of 150 engineers in 8 European design offices.

    # Evolving the design
    When you start thinking about a new building, you usually have many ideas in your head – dreams, needs, concerns. At Astron we help you to turn your ideas into reality – within a fixed timeframe and a fixed budget. We translate your functional and regulatory requirements into fluid space. You validate each phase and remain the decision-maker for the proposed options: ergonomics, structure, choice of materials.

    # Variable shape
    Adapt your building to any type of environments. Shape, climatic & atmospheric conditions, soil & seismic characteristics, together we will find the best configuration to contribute to the profitability of your project.

    # Future extensions
    Your building can be designed to allow for future modifications to best accompany the development of your company, without interrupting your operations: an extension, photovoltaic installation, future cranes …or mutability.

Energy saving from design to operation

# From A to Z
At Astron we strive to meet all your construction needs with attention to sustainability, providing a simplified and more environmentally friendly way to complete your construction project in every aspect of our business. Astron was one of the first players on the market to provide economical solutions for a «nearly zero-energy building» NZEB for industrial applications.

# Steel promotes sustainability
Because steel building systems start with recycled steel today and can be recycled at the end of their useful lives, systems construction outperforms all other forms of construction for life cycle analysis and least material impact on the environment.

# Certified approach
Astron is assessed by EcoVadis, an international network in the field of sustainability. The assessment focuses on global supply chains, i.e. networks of relationships between production, distribution and procurement. As an example, our optimised use of raw materials and the high recycling rate were rated very positively. The energy optimisation of the Astron buildings and the support of LEED and BREAM certificates were also honoured accordingly. The result is an energy-efficient building that is completed faster, with the highest quality and lowest risks.
