Farm Buildings

Bridgewater Construction is a family business based in Shropshire, with a national reputation for the design and installation of premium quality steel farm buildings. By choosing us, customers benefit from years of industry experience, specialist knowledge and a top quality product that enables expansion and diversification across a range of industries including agricultural work and livestock husbandry.

One of the key advantages of steel framed farm buildings is their exceptional durability. Steel is a robust material that can withstand extreme weather conditions, including strong winds, heavy snow, and even seismic activity. Unlike traditional wooden structures, agricultural steel buildings will not rot, warp, or deteriorate over time. This durability ensures that the farm building can stand the test of time, reducing the need for frequent repairs or replacements and resulting in long-term cost saving for customers.

A steel framed farm building is a cost effective alternative to materials such as concrete and wood. Our range of steel framed buildings can be erected within a few hours, allowing you to commence working quickly. At Bridgewater Construction, we can offer you competitive prices on the sale of your steel project.

What can a steel frame farm building be used for?

A steel frame farm building can be used for a range of purposes, including:


  • Livestock buildings
  • Crop and equiptment storage
  • Hay and grain stores
  • Machinery and equiptment sheds
  • Processing and packing facilities
  • Greenhouses and nurseries
  • Equestrian buildings for training and equine housing
  • Motor garages


Building a steel frame farm building involves several stages, including; planning, foundation construction, steel frame assembly, wall and roof installation, and any finishing touches. The time required for assembly can vary depending on the size and complexity of the project, as well as factors like weather conditions and the availability of labor.

  1. Planning and Design: This stage involves assessing the sites needs, determining the buildings size and layout, and finalizing the design. The duration of this phase depends on the complexity of the structure and the time taken for design approvals.
  2. Site Preparation: Clearing the site, leveling the ground, and ensuring proper drainage are important steps before the construction begins.
  3. Foundation Construction: A solid foundation is crucial for a durable and stable agricultural building. The construction time for the foundation depends on its design, complexity, and the type of foundation chosen, such as a concrete slab, footings, or piers.
  4. Steel Frames Assembly: The steel frame, consisting of columns, beams, and trusses, is erected following the design specifications. The time taken for steel frame assembly depends on the size of the building.
  5. Wall and Roof Installation: Once the steel frame is in place, the walls and roof are installed. Steel wall panels and roofing sheets are attached, providing enclosure and weather protection.
  6. Interior Finishes: Additional interior finishes, such as insulation, electrical wiring, plumbing, and any specific requirements for the building, are addressed during this phase.
  7. Final Inspections and Completion: After the construction is finished, the building undergoes inspections to ensure compliance with building codes and safety standards. The time required for inspection and obtaining the necessary permits can vary based on local regulation and the workload of the authorities involved.
