We write this article because One of Dorian’s customer received the goods and started to do the installation work at the end of Sept in Chile and meet some problem.

According to the initial feedback from customer side, our engineer found that there has a problem with the customer's installation work. Customer already started to install the purline and tie bar before installing all the columns with the correct position, which may cause some problems such as misalignment of the beams position, tilt of the wall panel afterwards.

Dorian company made a simple steel structure warehouse/workshop installation guide to assist the customers installation work in future.
