What Options are Available for Building Finishes?

Whether it is important to you for your new building to blend seamlessly into its surroundings or to stand out by selecting from our wide range of building finishes we can accommodate your preference with a massive choice of external material choices, providing a building unique to your requirements that looks the part.

Manufacturing buildings in our ISO-approved workshop provide our team with a controlled environment in which they construct each modular building, allowing our team to completely tailor your building to your needs; supplying you with your building, your way.

Building Finishes

We offer a wide variety of external finishes including brick slip, steel-clad, PVC timber effect cladding and natural wood. 

External Cladding

External cladding can make a huge difference to how your building looks and we have lots of options for you to choose from. Some of the materials we use are available in a variety of colours and include:

  • Plastisol steel
  • Brick slip
  • Cedar clad
  • PVC cladding
  • Laminate


Our windows come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours including:

  • Square
  • Round
  • Picture windows
  • Architectural windows
  • Special shape

At Springfield, all of our windows come with some standard features to create a safe and secure environment in your new building. These include:

  • UPVC – low maintenance, recyclable, durable, rot-resistant and provides thermal comfort.
  • Pilkington “K” Glass – helps considerably in reducing the amount of energy required to heat a room. 
  • Double Glazing – insulation, noise reduction and security are provided through the use of double glazing. 
  • Lockable Handles – high-level security.

On top of the standard features, you can choose from a combination of the below:

  • Tinted – To help prevent the sun’s glare and UV rays from entering the building.
  • Trickle Vents – These can be fitted to windows to provide the whole building with ventilation and provide air to the extract fans, aiding in the removal of odours and humidity.
  • Argon Filled – Argon is used to increase the energy efficiency and general performance of thermal windows. Argon-filled windows bring the temperature of the window closer to room temperature.
  • Solar Tinted – Having solar tinted windows helps eliminate hot spots in the building, regulates the amount of light entering each room and reduces glare on computer screens.
  • Laminated – Laminated glass is a type of safety glass that holds together when shattered. In the event of breaking, it is held in place by an interlayer between two or more layers of glass.
  • Toughened – Toughened glass is up to five times stronger than regular glass and is specially treated so that it will break into small, blunt pieces under pressure.


Choose from a flat or pitched roof with a variety of colour and tile profiles, with the ability to match cladding or stand apart.
