Our modular and prefab buildings are fully customizable to include:

  • Custom sidewall and leg heights
  • Variety of door styles and sizes

Custom Structures | Engineering Ingenuity

When you work with Britespan, you can trust you are working with industry experts. From concept to completion, we design, engineer and manufacture all of our steel trusses and fabric covers in-house. Our technical and engineering team works with leading programs to ensure every building project exceeds our client's expectations while preserving structural integrity. All of our buildings are site-specific engineered and constructed to accommodate local building codes and weather.

Britespan's port buildings and marina storage buildings are perfect to stand up to tough environments. Our fabric covers are non-corrosive and our steel trusses are hot-dip galvanized after all fabrication is complete. This process provides superior corrosion protection when compared to pre-galvanized or powder coating. Contact us today to discuss your port or marina building project.
