General Purpose Farm Buildings

Our general purpose farm buildings have a wide variety of uses on the farm, from storage sheds to machinery workshops.

Steel frames offer wide clear spans, are durable and give flexibility of use. You can also extend existing buildings from the existing gable ends or add a lean-to.

Our structural steelwork is fabricated at our workshops in Hingham to CE marking standards.

Cladding is available in a wide variety of materials, colours and profiles.

We also provide concrete foundations, main access doors, personnel doors, concrete walling and louvre panels as required.
