Why DPL?

A great value, fast build and long-lasting solution for your space

What do you need most from your new steel building? Smart new premises? More space in your current premises to expand or make your business more efficient? A more modern look?

We understand that a new/refurbished building is a big capital investment – and making the wrong choice could be a costly mistake. If you get it right first time, your return on investment can be tremendous. And fast.

Most building projects cost more than they should – not ours. Here’s why…

Our experience tells us that time invested in the planning early on helps us to nail down costs and iron out potential wrinkles before they happen. It also means you won’t suddenly face a bill for extra costs once your project’s underway.

You’ll get a comprehensive cost from us (not just a basic build one) – even including things like equipment hire that you might be used to seeing at a later stage.

We invest this time early on because we think it’s the best way to help you take a realistic view of what works for you. When you’re comparing prices, make sure there are no extra costs to come later.

“…With the finance and the deadline we had DPL were able to meet our needs, other quotes we had said that their prices may increase, we went with DPL because they quoted a price in writing and stuck to that price…We would be very happy to recommend DPL to anybody…”

Mr Michael Murphy, South Kilworth Parish Council, Leicestershire

Here’s why a DPL planning consultation is a real investment in the success of your new building project (and why we love to work this way):

  • Discover exactly what you need to create the building you want
  • See the buildings and walk around the space
  • Meet the team – know who you’re buying from
  • Get answers to your questions
  • Let us fully understand your needs. We’ll explain what’s involved, for example, in terms of planning permission and building regulation requirements – and then we’re here to take as much of the hassle away from you as you want/need
  • You’ll get a real feel for how a steel building will suit you and your business – the appearance and the style. After all, our buildings are created with a design life of 50 years – and are likely to last even longer.

“….it was good that we could come and see an example of the buildings first hand. I was pleased with the timescales for getting quotes and drawings through, it was definitely a big help to me. I will be looking for another building in the next couple of years and will definitely be coming to you for it.”

Rob Manship, Mechanics Workshop Rothley, Leicestershire

Ask away…

This exclusive consultation is an opportunity for you to ask questions – and for us to raise some you might not even have considered. It will help you understand exactly what you’ll get for your money and help us understand what you need in a building that’s right for you, like:

  • Is your space limited?
  • Do you need to move large items in and out of the building?
  • What about access restrictions? Temperature control? Light?
  • What will you be doing in the building?
  • Who needs access to it, and when?
  • Will you need offices, partitions or mezzanine floors?
  • Have you considered solar panels?
  • Are you likely to grow further – and will you be able to adapt?
  • Have you considered condensation issues?
  • And what about planning restrictions, particularly if you’re in a conservation area?

In fact, we firmly believe that this first stage of the project is crucial.

What happens next?

Our team takes all the information from your consultation to provide you with a detailed quotation. It’s more than you’d probably expect and gives you the kind of facts that really help you make the right decision. For a start, our in-depth quotation means…

No hidden costs

You’ll get a full outline of your investment with no hidden extras – what you see is what you get. You’ll receive a price for a fully functioning building to move in to.

“….Your quote was easy to understand so I was comfortable that there were not going to be any hidden costs when it came to ordering as price was important to us.”

Stephen Pester, County Cabins, Southampton

Plus you can look forward to a fast return on investment

Our precision processes mean lower installation costs, structures with low wastage and short on-site construction times. It all adds up to you getting a quicker return on your investment.

So, once you’ve had your quote, and you’re happy with everything and decide to go ahead, we’ll design the most cost effective building for your requirements – based on your needs, not ours. We call this ‘value engineering’.

What does our value engineering look like for you?

  • You’ll get a full site survey
  • So you can have your building how you want it, we’ll consider a range of options, including different methods and types
  • We’ll always aim to find the most economic way to achieve your aims
  • Your building will be accurately drawn, designed and made to measure by our in-house design and planning team using state of the art equipment.
  • You can ask advice from our team if you want to put your building through planning yourselves.

If you prefer, we can manage the local authority planning and building control process for you. Our knowledge can help save you time and hassle and avoid unnecessary delays.

And all this starts with your free, no obligation consultation.

Simple, clear communication throughout

When you choose DPL for your steel building, you won’t be passed from pillar to post, wasting your precious time. You’ll be allocated a project manager to liaise with you throughout your build. Having one point of contact makes it easy for you to ask questions and get immediate answers from us – great peace of mind.

AND we’ll take it upon ourselves to proactively keep you up to date, with regular updates on everything from planning (if we’re managing that for you) to manufacture.

“From cradle to grave, DPL held our hand, giving us advice and guidance throughout the project…We are very happy, as the whole process has been remarkably trouble and stress free…”

Keith McEwan, Committee Member, Rothley Park Golf Club, Rothley, Leicestershire

Managing your project so it works for you

So far:

  • We’ve planned your project meticulously
  • Your building has been manufactured to a high standard

Now we’re ready to get to work on site.

How we make your build go smoothly

Exceptional support doesn’t stop with our office-based team – you can expect the same level of support from our on-site team too. As a family-run firm with vast experience, we’ve shown time and again that we work with integrity, honesty and openness at every stage.

“…I was impressed firstly by the team that came to dig the footings for the building through to the team that came to put it up, we had a good relationship. I was able to ask them on site if there was anything I was unsure of and also it worked the other way round, but generally we didn’t need to bother each other…”

Francis Kempster, Head Green Keeper, Glen Gorse Golf Club, Leicestershire

We know you’ve got a job to do while we do ours, so we’ll always minimise any disruption. You’ll know what deliveries are being made and when. Another benefit of a steel building is that less storage is required on your site – another way we reduce inconvenience for you.

Rest assured though: quick doesn’t mean cutting corners…

It just means we’ll have planned accurately based on our in-depth consultation, investing knowledge and expertise – so once we’re on site, we can continue to work efficiently and cost effectively with no hidden surprises.

High standards throughout

As you’d expect from a highly professional company, health and safety is a priority. Your building will be constructed by an installation team who have all passed their CSCS (Construction Site Certification Scheme) card health and safety test. We also hold CHAS (Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme) and Safe Contractor accreditation.

You’ll have the peace of mind that we follow all health and safety guidelines when working on site and at height. We’re confident we’ll be able to meet your requirements on health and safety too. You can request any certificates plus risk and method statements.

You’ll be choosing an environmentally responsible partner with DPL. We reduce our impact and our transport costs through low material usage with good packaging. Steel is 100% sustainable and at least 40% of steel used in the construction of your building will have been recycled. We recycle all waste steel and maintain tidy sites to minimise our impact on the environment.

All this value and peace of mind comes as standard with a steel building from DPL.

Look out for the CE Mark

We only use British suppliers and manufacturers whom we trust for high quality products. You’ll have the reassurance that, with DPL, your steel building will be legally compliant as it is fully CE-marked. Since the start of July 2014, all structural frame manufacturers have been obliged by law to have their Design Protocol and Factory Production Control Procedures assessed to European Standard EN 1090. Following an initial assessment, if the frame maker passes, they’ll be accredited to CE Mark for their frames.

Steel buildings mean low maintenance

Your building will be easier to maintain too. Working with DPL, you can choose to have it galvanised/primed or painted, and it will have quality gutter systems and cladding. So it will look good for longer. You can also select from many colours and profiles for your cladding to match your location or company branding. You’ll be able to see a range of samples at your consultation.

“Maintenance free was the main feature that impressed us most, simply because schools have a legacy of operational cost, so the more we can do to reduce those costs in terms of ongoing maintenance means that we can focus more on directing it towards the children…”

Claire Griffiths, School Business Manager, Henry Chichele Primary School, Higham Ferrers, Northampton

New build…or refurb?

Are you considering a new steel building to replace a tired old one? If so, refurbishment could be a viable alternative to provide you with a lower cost insulated building that will look like new, as well as saving on heating and stopping leaks from roof sheets. Our steel cladding team can help transform your building to a fully watertight and attractive unit again. Choose DPL for a great value solution delivered with the same meticulous care and attention as we do on a new build.

Our solid steel guarantee

Not only do you get a full warranty on the materials and construction – up to 30 years for cladding and sheeting and 10 years for other materials – we also offer a simple, honest guarantee:

If anything is wrong with the construction of your building – anything at all – we’ll fix it for you. No quibbles, no hassles.

Plus, with our unique 7-year build guarantee, you can be sure that we’ll take care of any snagging issues fast.

Partner with DPL for greater peace of mind…we don’t know any other steel building suppliers who offer this level of guarantee.

The reassurance of satisfied customers

Naturally, you won’t just want to take our word for it. You’ll have the reassurance that we have many long-term business relationships with customers who are pleased to refer us.

“We have used DPL for many years and they have carried out all our building repairs for the past 10 years. We also went with DPL because they are trustworthy. We know that they leave a clean and tidy site and are local and easy to get hold of.
We are very happy to recommend you and have already given your name to someone looking for a building.”

Robert Spencer, GH Spencer and Son, Thorpe Arnold, Melton Mowbray

We even have businesses that are so happy with our work that they’ll be pleased to talk to you as a prospective customer. In some cases, you can even visit a DPL customer at their site. We can discuss this with you at your consultation – without any obligation.
