It sounds like increasing the width of the door opening will not be a
problem based on the amount of solid wall available in the length of the
building.  The problem will come in providing the appropriate edge
reinforcing.  In the past I have used Channel frames around the door
connected to the wall with expansion or epoxy set bolts.  Another method
would be with large steel angles and bolt the angles into the wall face.
This method is a little more tricky in the detailing and welding in the
corners.
