The V-Span is a commercial version of the folded plate designs developed by Prof Mike Davies at Salford University. This lightweight system enables spans of up to 22m using roof sheets as a truss, eliminating fabricated steelwork. This has been used in Ethiopia by Oxfam and in Tanzania by SOGEA, as well as for a stable block in the UK belonging to Ken Jackson, a member of the Conport team..
