Diversify with steel frame buildings & farm buildings

Steel framed structures are quick and easy to install, yet offer excellent structural stability, reliable weather resistance and top levels of safety. Their ability to achieve height and wide open spaces make them ideal for all types of agricultural applications, from grain stores and live stock housing, to milking parlours, workshops, implant sheds and straw barns.

Our expert advisors have a wealth of knowledge in recommending the best types of steel framed buildings for each customer, bringing significant results based on your precise goals. For instance, you could choose steel agricultural sheds for simple functions such as storage of equipment, vehicles and livestock, or have us design large, multi-bay steel industrial units that can act as a packing and distribution facility, or be fitted with cooling equipment to create a secure cold store.

Meanwhile, many of our agricultural customers get our steel framed buildings installed on their premises in order to truly diversify their commercial offering.  Some examples include farmers who have added daffodil growing and other horticultural offerings to their portfolio, whilst one customer in particular uses our steel buildings to house a painstakingly designed miniature railway.

Our steel frame agricultural buildings will suit all of your needs.
