Specialist in the manufacture of quality industrial steel buildings, Wide Span Sheds , recently supplied the Seventh-Day Adventist Church in the Solomon Islands with a large prefabricated cold form building as a meeting point for their congregation in the South Pacific.

President of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church, Pastor Andrew Kingston, approached Wide Span Sheds to design a building that would comfortably accommodate the large group of parishioners.

“The Seventh-Day Adventist Church was looking for a company that could supply them with what they wanted for the best value for money. Wide Span Sheds was able to give them precisely that. We designed a large structure of about 50m x 84m, with a main span and two lean-tos," said Wide Span Sheds Industrial sales specialist, Manuel Delgado,

“We worked closely with the church’s Australian committee and with various Australian builders to find a solution that suited their exact requirements. Once the project was given the go ahead, we manufactured and supplied the prefabricated cold form building kit to them,” said Delgado.

An Australian builder then flew over to the Solomon Islands and trained the locals, who he then employed as part of his labour force to erect the entire prefabricated cold form building.

“As the locals were involved, there was a great sense of local pride and they all took ownership of the project,” explained Mr. Delgado.

Both Pr. Kingston and Delgado agree that the project was a huge success and the Seventh-Day Adventist Church ordered another five smaller outer buildings from Wide Span Sheds.

“It was a very interesting journey as these buildings were erected - especially the big one. It is 10 times as hard to erect something like this out here. Anyway it’s now up and being used and everyone is so proud,” concluded Pr. Kingston.
