Now Buildings is proud to be an 100% Australian Owned, 100% Australian Run, Wholesale Shed Company.
We are a proud Australian family-owned business with more than 30 years of combined experience within the industry. Our experience has allowed us to develop a unique, innovative, easy-to-build, strong shed system; this system has seen us become Australia’s leading wholesale shed company, supplying trade, businesses and farmers direct with massive savings off medium to large shed purchases. We use only the best Australian steel and components on the market, because our customers deserve only the best!
The Now Buildings difference
100% Bluescope Steel
We only use 100% Bluescope steel in our buildings for its superior strength and durability. The Bluescope steel we use has a tensile strength of 450 mega Pascals (MPa) to 500MPa. For comparison, structural mild steel is 250MPa.
Bluescope’s Colorbond Steel has been tested in a variety of Australia’s harshest conditions. In Rockhampton, Queensland, roof temperatures can reach over 60 degrees Celsius and in coastal Bellambi, New South Wales, the marine environment can be extremely corrosive to steel products.
Inferior products such as coating protection will crack under the pressure of these elements. However, 30 years of testing and development means that Colorbond Steel is built to last, just like our sheds.
All materials in Now Buildings’ sheds are backed by Bluescope’s warranty of up to 25 years.
Family Owned and Run
Now Buildings was established with the vision to create a family owned company to provide Australia with quality, Australian made sheds at wholesale prices. Our company has seen consistent growth over the past 10 years and is debt free.
Although Now Buildings has grown since its humble beginnings, it has been our mission to ensure we provide all our customers with a personalised buying experience. That’s why when you call Now Buildings, you’ll speak to the same people, every time.
We work with you
Our team works hard to ensure customer satisfaction is our number one priority.
From quote to construction, our outstanding customer service team will be there to provide support and assistance to you.
Our Sales team will work closely with you to find out exactly what your shed needs are and provide a quote to suit you. From our existing designs, we can add or remove roller doors, sliding doors and personal access doors to create the perfect combination for your needs. We have a selection of custom additions such as internal walls, access doors, beam over designs, clear skylights and more that can be included to make your shed as unique as your requirements. Your new shed can also be created in either traditional Zincalume or a variety of genuine Colorbond colours, meaning seamless matching with any existing buildings on site.
With strict adherence to building codes, standards and wind speed requirements, all our buildings are accompanied by site specific engineering, designed to simplify the process of passing your new building through local council planning and approval. We can also recommend the right builder for the job using our network of experienced independent contractors.
Now Buildings can also provide logistical assistance to your transport company if you choose to pick up your shed.
Continuously striving to get your shed to you more quickly through industry leading manufacturing processes.
We’ve refined the manufacturing process down to a fine art. Once your happy with your shed quote, you’ll be the proud owner of a site-specific, engineer designed, 100% Australian Bluescope Steel shed within 4 weeks.
With depots throughout Australia, you can decide whether you want to pick up your shed or have it delivered straight to site. Either way, we’ll have your shed ready within 4 weeks and our customer service team will be on hand to assist the entire time.
Peace of Mind
Every building is personally signed and stamped by an independent engineer.
Our shed kits come with full site-specific engineering, extensive plans and construction support. All materials in Now Buildings’ sheds are backed by Bluescope’s warranty of up to 25 years.
When you buy from Now Buildings, you can rest assured that your purchase will not only be supporting an Australian owned and operated company, but also your local area. The majority of your shed will be produced locally, providing jobs and security to workers and companies around you.
We only supply 450mpa or higher components, 8.8 commercial grade bolts and class 4 fasteners in our buildings.
Our engineer designed sheds have a unique double bracketing connection system that bolts through the web and flange of the sections. For greater strength and ease of construction, we’ve also developed an inground footing system. Now Buildings sheds are also designed with superior durability in mind, with every column extending all the way through each haunch connection and joining directly to the corresponding rafter, ensuring the strength is transferred from a single member to a complete purlin
All materials used in our sheds are of the highest quality to ensure your shed is strong and built to last. We use high tensile bolts, class 4 screws and industrial high-grade sheeting for both the roof and walls of your shed. All our sheds are certified to Importance Level 2, which is up to 30% stronger than traditional farm sheds.
The Bluescope steel we use has a tensile strength of 450 mega Pascals (MPa) to 500MPa. For comparison, structural mild steel is 250MPa. If lower grade steel is used for the same building, larger quantities are required to do the same job and further additions again if any extra weight needs to be supported. We use only the highest grade steel available for construction to ensure your shed is as strong as possible and that you aren’t paying more for the shed of lesser quality.
Both Now Buildings and our independent engineers are fully insured, so you know your shed will be covered for life.
Our product designers work to continually develop our soundly engineered shed components. This process, for example, has seen our hot dipped, galvanized footing brackets increase by 25% in size and 2mm in thickness, meaning even greater strength being transferred to the column that each footing is supporting. Additionally, haunch and apex brackets have increased in size by 35%, providing stronger column and rafter connections than ever before.
Your shed can be picked up or delivered from 26 depots right across Australia.
Sheds may be collected from one of Now Buildings’ many depots nationwide and delivery is available in most areas. Now Buildings can customise a delivery or pick up plan to suit your needs. If you choose to pick up your shed from one of our 26 depots, our friendly staff will ensure you have all of the necessary details to pick your shed up. If you decide to use a transport company, we’ll liaise with them directly and provide logistical assistance to ensure your pick up goes smoothly.
Extend at any Time
Our buildings are designed to add extensions. So when your needs grow, so can your shed.
Our engineering allows any of our sheds to be extended in any way, at any time. Each end column and internal column of a Now Buildings shed is uniform, enabling you to add bays, lean-tos or even join extra sheds down the track. Our specialised knee, apex, cross bracing and fly bracing give you the ability to select a custom shed height and extend your shed’s bay widths by increments of 100mm. This means you can work on getting a shed to suit your needs right now with the view of adding to it in the future.
Strength in Numbers
Our multi-million dollar buying power means we can pass the savings on to the customer.
We’ve kept our overheads low so that we can pass exceptional savings straight on to our customers. Now Buildings deals exclusively with ABN holders on a ‘business to business’ basis, which means farmers and other business customers can buy a premium quality, Australian made shed at a wholesale price.
Easy to Build
All Now Buildings sheds come with a specific, easy to read construction manual. We’ve also ensured that all materials supplied are easily identified in our customer supplied bill of materials and handy illustrated guide.
Our sheds can be built in as little as one day. Check out the ten reasons a Now Building shed can save you more than 10 hours in building time.
1. Universal Footing Brackets
Your shed kit comes supplied with one, uniform footing bracket style and size, with the same brackets used for across all differing column dimensions.
2. Shed Steel Members Punched
This minimises drilling on site and ensures your frame will be constructed in the position it’s intended to be. Following our illustrated guide, you or your builder simply match the pre-punched base bolt holes and fasten them together to assemble your footings to the required column size.
3. All our Portal Framing Bolts are Flange Purlin Bolts
No need to waste time assembling the washers, bolts and nuts individually.
4. Universal Framing and Main Brackets
Don’t worry about sorting out left and right brackets. Our unique design means the assembly is the same on both sides. This reduces picking errors by 95% as we know how frustrating it is when you have the ‘24 left bracket’ but you need the ‘12 left/right bracket’.
5. Pre-bent Fly Bracing
All our flybracing is prebent to suit your Purlins, Girts and Framing Save hours bending flat sheets of metal.
6. Main Tek and Bolt Wastage
We supply a generous wastage factor for all main fixing bolts and screws. If you accidentally drop a frame bolt in the mud from a scissor lift you can continue on rather than hold up construction looking for it!
7. Footing Bracket Hinging System
Hinge the frames up via their footings rather than lifting the whole frame with a crane.
8. Technical Construction Manual with Drawings and Exploded Views
We’ve used exploded connection drawings to visually demonstrate each step of the building process. This makes it easier to identify the materials required as well as how they fit together.
9. Recommended Builders
We have a number of builders around Australia who love building our sheds. If you want your shed construction completed without a hassle, our sales team can refer you to a recommended builder in your area.
10. Construction Support
You can give our friendly staff a call if you have any construction queries.
