Who We Are

Ultraspan Otago Ltd. designs, manufactures, and constructs commercial steel buildings and sheds of all types throughout Canterbury, Otago, and Southland. We not only take pride in our workmanship and project delivery — we also take great pride in our team and the solid relationships that we build with our clients.

We design and construct all of our structural steel buildings from start to finish. This includes every aspect of the design and construction, including concrete foundations, floor slabs, block work, pre-cast walls, wall cladding, and roofing. We use our own plumbers, electricians, painters, gibstoppers and flooring specialists. We are a single point of contact that will sort every aspect of your project ourselves or subcontract people to do it for us.

Why Ultraspan?

There are a number of reasons to choose an Ultraspan building over the others out there. The strength of our product, our clear span technology, and our experience just to name a few.

  • Strength
  • Design
  • Engineering
  • Fabrication
  • Planning Consents and Approvals
  • Subcontractors and Specialist Trades
  • Construction
  • Project Management

An Ultraspan building is made from high strength, tough, premium grade structural steel. They are designed to withstand high snow and wind loads and the advantage of our steel buildings is the "Clear Span Technology." This means there are no internal columns. We have produced up to, and over, an 80m clear span building. Bay sizes vary on the type of building that you require and custom sizes will be used to suit your project's requirements. Heights also vary from 3m to over 12m high with various roof pitches ranging from 3 degrees to 45 degrees.

At Ultraspan, we have experts in all aspects of steel building design, engineering, fabrication and construction. For every major project Ultraspan delegates an overall project manager with other designated personnel responsible for each element of the manufacture and construction.

Subcontractors are brought in for specialist trades. This way we are able to provide a complete design, engineering, fabrication and construction service from concept to completion.

Our History & Evolution

The Ultraspan product has been used in commercial and industrial building construction in the South Island of New Zealand for over 20 years. In April 2013, we took over the New Zealand distributorship for Ultraspan buildings from Mike Hedges Builders Ltd and we incorporated Ultraspan (Otago) Ltd. Previously, Mike Hedges Builders had designed and built literally hundreds of commercial buildings with the Ultraspan product during their tenor.

Ultraspan (Otago) Ltd is family owned and operated. We have a very experienced staff of excellent project managers, qualified builders, designers, tradesman, and administration.
