A leader in industrial building projects

Our company’s background in manufacturing and engineering has allowed us to forge a great reputation in the design and construction of industrial buildings, particularly when it comes to modular buildings and tensile structures.

A leader in industrial building projects

BMI Icopal warehouse


Whether warehouse buildings, port and harbour buildings, aircraft hangars, waste and recycling facilities, or manufacturing operations, we have the construction expertise to do it all.

We have worked as an industrial building contractor for a diverse array of clients across the UK, becoming a partner of choice for the construction of industrial buildings in a wide range of settings.

Whether it’s a traditional build, or a facility that utilises modern methods of construction, such as modular construction or tensile construction, we can provide a solution that works for you.

We have our own off-site manufacturing capabilities for modular construction, while our expertise in tensile buildings has seen us become the sole UK distributor for Best-Hall, a leading worldwide manufacturer of steel-framed, fabric covered structures.

Whether working as a main contractor or a subcontractor, our team take the time to listen to you, delivering industrial buildings that provide the solution to your needs.

Projects we have been involved in include household waste recycling centres, warehouses, manufacturing facilities, and bulk storage facilities.

We can offer a full design and build service or work in partnership with your existing project team to deliver the right industrial building for you.

Our aim is to always offer an attentive, helpful, thorough and efficient service, providing a solution you are completely happy with and one that helps your organisation achieve its goals.

Unrivalled industrial

From our humble beginnings as a manufacturer of agricultural buildings and feeding solutions, we’ve innovated over many decades to become a UK-wide contractor of choice for industrial buildings. We’re a construction company with manufacturing in our DNA.

Speed and ease of

Our expertise in tensile buildings, and our offsite construction capabilities, mean we can create high quality industrial spaces that are quick to build, easy to maintain, and allow you to maximise the space you have available.

Backed by world-leading

As the sole UK distributor for Best-Hall tensile buildings, we use tried and trusted technology to create safe, reliable, and cost-effective industrial spaces for our clients.


Large clear span buildings are a Collinson Construction speciality. These fabric framed structures are a low cost and effective way to build a permanent warehouse, storage or distribution facility.

Port and Harbour Buildings

Port buildings need to be able to handle harsh coastal conditions. Our steel structures use special coatings to withstand corrosive environments. The modular nature of the superstructure means almost any size of building is possible and the robust, lightweight design minimises foundation requirements, making them a flexible choice for ports and harbours.

Aviation and Hangars

We have experience in constructing flexible industrial buildings that provide storage and maintenance areas for aeroplanes and helicopters. The clear span nature of our tensile buildings makes them tall and wide enough to accommodate a diverse range of aircraft, maintenance equipment and support vehicles.

Waste and Recycling

We can provide flexible buildings suited to the processing of all kinds of waste. Our industrial buildings can provide a solution for containing dust and odour emissions, even for aggressive environments like covered composting and maturation facilities. A single large space, free of internal columns, is ideal for the handling of a wide range of materials where the unobstructured movement of machinery is essential.

Bulk Solids

Whether agri-bulks, coal, minerals, grains and animal feeds, tensile industrial buildings offer cost-effective, functional storage for all types of major and minor dry bulk commodities. Large clear span buildings with translucent ceilings offer a safe and secure storage solution for a wide range of materials.

Biomass and Renewables

Our expertise in tensile and modular industrial buildings means we are able to provide cost-effective and weatherproof storage for all types of biomass including wood waste, wood pellets, solids and agricultural waste. The natural light and clear span features also make these buildings ideal for the assembly of large structures such as wind turbines.


The project ran like clockwork, nothing was any trouble for the team

The double-skinned tensile facility provides the perfect solution for the harsh environments associated with maritime storage. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Collinson and look forward to working with them again in the future.
