Please note it is advised you only take on the assembly of our buildings if you have previous general building experience, we are happy to give additional advice during your assembly should you require it, please allow 24 hours for enquiries to be answered as we do not have a dedicated assembly advice team, our sales team will need time to double-check with the relevant team to ensure we give you the correct advice. Instructions for assembly include the below instructions plus some additional figures for your specific building.  

To help you make your decision please read the guidelines, these will be supplied to you with additional figures of your building to assist you with assembly.
Please note your building is custom-made to order bespoke items and does not come with mass-produced flat-pack furniture style instructions, this is a cold-rolled steel building not a wardrobe after all.
