How much does it cost to build a metal barn?
Metal barns can be a great investment; they offer more storage space and they look great.
Whether you’re after an Aussie-style barn or an American Barn, we have you covered. Each job is different, so for an exact figure you might want to get a quote (we answer within 24 hours).
For an estimate of how much your barn might cost, see below:
Small to medium barns
A small to medium barn includes anything with a floor area up to 10m x 10m. These can be used for storage, workshops or car parking.
Smaller stable barns are often used for horses, and these can cost as little as $20,000.
Cost range: $20,000 – $30,000
Taking a step up in size will bring you into the next cost bracket. Medium barns range in size, up to 29m x 12m.
Cost range: $30,000 – $55,000
Very large, industrial barns can cost as much as $200,000.
These range in size up to 61m x 27m and are large buildings. We’ve had clients build barns with indoor riding arenas inside them, and we’ve had clients building industrial dairy barns.
Cost range: $55,000 – $200,000
Everything You Need To Know About Dressage
Dressage is a french word which is interpreted as ‘training’. It is considered widely as the most artistic and elegant of equestrian sports. This sport requires a rider and horse to be in perfect harmony together whilst performing. Dressage riders and horses perform ‘tests’ that consist of a course of movements and are judged on a scale of one to ten on these.
Dressage is seen to be the foundation for mostly all equestrian disciplines. Due to the precision required in the movements, the rider and horse need to be balanced and aware down to the most subtle aids.
There are ten different levels of dressage. These range from very basic skills up the highest levels which require literal perfection and years of training to master. Each level until the sixth has three tests of which the rider can choose.
For the first four levels of dressage there is only one judge for tests. Judges score movements on a scale of one up to ten. Competitors and their horses are scored on collective marks and the score for each movement is added together to come up with a final number of points. After this the number of points is divided by the highest number of points achievable and multiplied by ten to create a final percentage score.
Dressage riders are required to wear formal clothing in tests. The dress code for all tests up to the fourth level is a short riding coat of conservative colour with a tie, choker, stock tie or integrated stand-up collar, light coloured breeches, boots, and protective headgear. There are more specific rules relating to certain levels.
Generally expensive breeds of warmbloods are used for dressage. Warmbloods are extremely talented horses with nearly all breeds having foundations in European countries. Whist these horses are beautiful and athletic you do not have to have a warmblood horse if you wish to compete in dressage.
Building An Aircraft Control Tower
This is one of our most impressive recent builds and is a great example of design, functionality and quality coming together to create an exceptional structure.
We were contacted by a commercial builder that needed a special design and construction solution. We had done a lot of hangars in the past, but had not before embarked on a structure o
f this kind, on this scale. It was a challenge we were very excited by.
As with all things involving aircraft, there were a lot of very specific demands that needed to be met and we knew that this project would need an exceptional amount of attention to detail.
Making sure that every part of the project is completely accurate and precise was crucially important on a complex technical building like this. Luckily, our clients had a thorough understand of their requirements and our engineers were able to work with them to get this project completed and fully functional.
The building looks fantastic and does the job perfectly. Large projects always come together flawlessly when we have the chance to work closely with our clients. Our team of engineers and designers were able to take on board all of the specifications and requirements to create one of the best buildings we’ve ever erected.
