Our company has over 45 years of experience in engineering of steel structures and we have installed buildings around the world. Our superior engineering ensures our customers’ complete satisfaction and the durability of their structures.
The MegaDome truss arches are made from oval tubing, stronger than round tubing. It also provides a wide, flat surface for superior welding and a stronger assembly. Straight bracing joins the top and bottom chord for unparalleled strength.
The bronze-silicon welding we use on our pre-galvanized buildings combines good welding performance and corrosion resistance, without the need to apply zinc paint. The corrosion protection of MegaDome is complete.

CWB Certification - A mission that spells success

The Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB) is a non-profit organization which provides welding certification and education. The activities of the CWB contribute to the high level of competency enjoyed by industries employing welding and joining techniques and the consistent progress in welding technology, and the reliability of welded products.

How do I find out if a manufacturer is certified?

 

A list of certified manufacturers can be accessed through the Canadian Welding Bureau’s website at http://eng.cwbgroup.org. Go to: « CWB CERTIFICATION », select « Types of CWB Certification », then: « Search for CWB Clients, Inspectors and Products ».

Six Reasons to Congratulate Yourself for requiring a certified manufacturer

Reason 1 – Certification works for you

CWB certifications allow manufacturers establish and maintain quality processes to improve their productivity.

Reason 2 – Minimal impact and maximum benefit for your organization

CWB is not a government agency. This organization is independent and exists to support and ensure that members have the resources, skills and processes required to deliver safe & reliable building.

Reason 3 – Qualified and skilled employees

CWB provides the peace of mind that comes with the knowledge that member workforces have access to that organization’s expertise and hands-on experience.

Reason 4 – Doing it right the first time

The certification improves manufacturer’s efficiency. It gives them the edge by helping them streamline and focus their manufacturing efforts on getting the job done without having to deal with costly reworks. Their clearly defined processes are designed to help manufacturers perform their tasks more efficiently.

Reason 5 – Enhance your opportunities

In a tough and competitive market, manufacturers must prove their worth. CWB is the proven symbol of quality, competence, safety and compliance and separates the contenders from the pretenders.

Reason 6 – Continuous improvement

The CWB offers continuous improvement and support by providing on-site seminars and education tools. This certification guarantees you a competent supplier, motivated and informed about the most recent innovations.

CSA A660-10

What is CSA A660-10 Certification?

The CSA A660-10 standard was developed to assist code enforcement officials in reviewing building permit submissions which incorporate steel building systems, and to help purchasers receive a quality certified building. The CSA A660-10 standard requires that the manufacturer’s production facility, staff and quality assurance systems be certified by an independent certification agency. As part of the CSA A660-10 compliance, the manufacturer will provide a “Certificate of Design and Manufacturing Conformance” signed and sealed by a licensed Professional Engineer for each building project. A sample copy of a Certificate is enclosed. Source : CSA-A660 Quality Certification for Steel Building Systems, published by the CSSBI and available www.cssbi.ca

Why is CSA A660-10 Certification beneficial?

Since the designer of the steel building system (SBS) is also the seller, there is no independent third-party representing the interests of the public. The audit and certification requirements included in the CSA A660-10 standard ensures that the SBS manufacturer is complying with the applicable building codes and design standards, and that the public is protected.

For Canada: A standalone CSA stamp of approval is an indication that the product is certified primarily for the Canadian market and standards. If a product has features from more than one area, (e.g.. electrical equipment with fuel burning features), the mark indicates compliance to all applicable standards.

How can you check if a manufacturer is properly certified?

A list of certified manufacturer is issued by the Canadian Welding Bureau and updated regularly as new manufacturers get certified. Download the list of CSA A660 Certified Manufacturers

International Building Code (IBC)

The International Building Code (IBC) is a model developed by the International Code Council (ICC) and widely adopted across most of the United States. These building code requirements generally apply to the construction of new buildings and alterations or additions to existing buildings, changes in the use of buildings, and the demolition of buildings, or portions of buildings, at the ends of their useful or economic life cycle.

As such, building codes obtain their effect from the voluntary decisions of property owners to erect, alter, add to, or demolish a building in a jurisdiction where a building code applies, because these circumstances routinely require a permit. The plans are subject to review for compliance with current building codes as part of the permit application process. Generally, building codes are not otherwise retroactive except to correct an imminent hazard.

Eurocode and applicable national appendices

Les Eurocodes are harmonized technical rules developed by the European Committee for Standardisation for the structural design of construction works in the European Union.


The purpose of the Eurocodes is to provide:

  • a means to prove compliance with the requirements for mechanical strength and stability and safety in case of fire established by European Union law.
  • a basis for construction and engineering contract specifications.
  • a framework for creating harmonized technical specifications for building products (CE mark).

As of March 2010, the Eurocodes are mandatory for the specification of European public works and are intended to become the de facto standard for the private sector. The Eurocodes therefore replace the existing national building codes published by national standard bodies (e.g. BS 5950), although many countries have had a period of co-existence. Additionally, each country is expected to issue a National Annex to the Eurocodes which will require referencing for a particular country (e.g. The UK National Annex). At present, adoption of Eurocodes is slow on private sector projects and existing national codes continue to be widely used by engineers.

Waste Recycling biomass, Ian Moncrieff

"Canadian Biofuel Inc. was looking for a cost effective and practical solution for its start-up plant in Springford Ontario. Located on a former grain handling facility, we were able to utilize the asphalt pad as the base for the MegaDome® building. The building contractor was quick and efficient and we were able to begin fabrication of the feedstock storage area and the pellet production line room under the new dome. The fabric cover provides great lighting and weather protection, more than enough ceiling height. All of this for a reasonable cost and on time completion. Due to an increase in export of our pellet products we will be expanding the existing building by adding another 54 feet to one end in order to store enough feedstock. We certainly look forward to use a MegaDome® again soon!"

Personal Storage, Allen Paul

It was always a dream to have my own hangar to store gliders and equipment out of the weather and when I saw what a MegaDome® building could provide, I thought it was time to turn that dream into reality. I was looking for a bright clear span functional low maintenance facility that could be relocated if necessary. The gothic featured roofline was pleasing to the eye and the almost vertical sidewall profile meant that I would be able to make great use of the floor space. Once that space was full, I had the option of storing additional gliders above floor level using simple hoists running from the building arches. Furthermore the design was easily adaptable to a variety of large entrance doors to facilitate moving equipment in and out.

I am extremely impressed with our MegaDome® and would recommend it to anyone! We wanted the best value and when looking for a suitable structure, no one else seems to do better on price and still supply what we wanted.
