Over the years, an increasing number of commercial and government entities have trusted Tuff Shed to solve their building needs. Today more than ever, our combination of turn-key building solutions, industry expertise, commitment to quality, single point of contact, and a network of local manufacturing facilities and nearly nationwide installation footprint make Tuff Shed unique in our ability to service commercial and government customers.

Our process, from the inquiry stage all the way to final building installation, is designed with the customer in mind. With nearly one million buildings installed to date, we’re experts at providing building solutions as unique as your need. Plus, our products and services are designed to be easily scalable, with our building specifications often identified as the standard in project requirements or bid packages.

We’ll take the worry out of your project, handling everything from initial consultation to final installation. Here’s how our process works.

“We enjoy the process far more than the proceeds.”Warren Buffet

Step 1

Project Assessment

Commercial and government entities turn to Tuff Shed with a variety of specific building needs. During our initial consultation, we’ll work with you to understand your building specs, budget and timeline. Whether your job is a simple, single structure or a complex, multi-unit project, we’ll establish a clear plan of action. Each project starts with an assessment designed to clearly define the scope.

  • Initial Consultation
  • Building Spec Review
  • Project Scope and Timeline
  • Budget Review
  • Site Evaluation

Step 2

Initial Design and Estimate

Based upon the discovery from the first step in our process, we get to work with initial building design and a project estimate. We do offer standard building designs, but that’s really just the start. We can easily accommodate any number of custom components and materials. That includes different siding and roofing types, custom door and window openings, building sizes and wall heights, even interior finishes and climate controls. At this stage, we’ll provide you with your building specifications, present you with various options, and supply you with an initial cost estimate with line itemization.

  • Rapid response to inquiries
  • Initial building sketch
  • List of building specifications
  • Initial cost estimate with itemization
  • Lead time and project completion estimate

Step 3

Engineering and Plan Approval

Having an in-house engineering department means that our plans can quickly and easily be integrated with your broader project plans. Depending on the requirement, either standard drawings (no additional cost), project/site-specific drawings, or wet-stamped original engineered plans will be provided. We work with clients to review every aspect of the building plan, and will assist in obtaining local building permits when required.

  • In house engineering capable of quick turnaround
  • Buildings designed to meet local building codes
  • Building designed to meet specific project requirements
  • Assistance obtaining local permits

“If you can dream it, you can do it.”
Walt Disney

Step 4

Order Finalization and Installation Schedule

Once payment is rendered or Purchase Order is issued, we work with clients to establish a delivery/installation date. Different delivery methods (pre-assembled or on-site assembly) are available depending on the project site and customer requirements. In both cases, installation of the Tuff Shed building is included in the project price. When part of a broader project or when local trades are required, we coordinate with other subcontractors.

  • Multiple payment options, including Purchase Orders
  • Flexible delivery dates/methods
  • Building installation included in price
  • Ability to coordinate with other project subcontractors
