What does it cost to build a fertiliser shed?
These figures are approximate, but offer an accurate view of the range of costs involved with projects of this kind.
Small to Medium Fertiliser Sheds
Small fertiliser sheds allow room for industrial quantities of fertiliser that cover areas smaller than 50m x 50m.
Cost range: $150,000 – $180,000
Medium fertiliser sheds cover areas approximately 50m x 50m.
Cost Range: $180,000 – $220,000
Large warehouses & factories
Large fertiliser sheds including buildings over 60m in length.
Cost range: $220,000 – $290,000
What kind of building permit will I require?
You will require a permit, and for large buildings, these come with a list of requirements. However, this is something that we take care of internally. Our clients don’t have to worry about applications or getting caught up in council regulations. We have a dedicated permit manager.
What kind of experience do you have?
Central Steel Build was established in 1975 and has since built thousands of sheds Australia-wide. We’ve been involved with small projects and large projects, often on scales that cover 7 acres of area.
We have an extremely knowledgeable team that knows what a client needs and knows how to deal with the challenges large projects entail.

Seven Biggest Aviation Hangars in the World
Aircraft hangars are meticulously designed and engineered constructions, custom to protect and serve the pilot and the plane. Take a look at this array of the largest and most impressive hangars that the world has to offer.
This impressive hangar was built in the 1990’s in Brandenburg Germany. It’s purpose was to house the production and storage of the CL 160 CargoLifter airship. This enormous aircraft was never actually built and thus it is now a resort and waterpark named Tropical Islands. The Aerium Hangar is the world’s largest freestanding hall, being the size of 181,500 square feet.
This hangar is known as ‘Big Texas’, being placed on San Antonio’s Kelly Airforce Base. It is the size of 600,00 square feet. As it is actively used in the US military not much else is known to the public of its uses and purpose.
Hangar One is located in the San Francisco Area of California. It was opened in 1933 and roughly covers 348,964 square feet. Formally this large building housed the U.S.S. Macon but is now leased by Google.
Hangar B is situated in Oregon U.S.A. it was built in 1943 by the U.S Navy during the Second World War. It houses both aircrafts and blimps throughout this period. It is now part of the Tillamook Air Museum. Being as big as 317,000 square feet, it is still one of the world’s largest clear-span wooden structures.
Boeing Everett Factory
Washington U.S.A houses the Boeing Everett Factory which is technically a production plant instead of a hangar even though the factory does store newly finished Boeing planes. It is open to the public and is a popular tourist attraction being the world’s largest free-standing structure at 4.3 million square feet.
Lockheed Air Terminal
This hangar has been in use since the Second World War. It is 163,344 square feet. At the time of the war netting camouflaged the entire airport to ensure from the air it looked like rural area, to prevent bombing attacks from enemy forces. The image above illustrates the rural disguise used in the war over the airport.
Spruce Goose Dome
This unique structure is located on Long Beach, California. In the past it has housed Hughes Aircraft’s H-4 Hercules. This aircraft has the largest wingspan of any aircraft ever to be built. However it was never deployed as it was not yet completed by the end of the Second World War, for which it was developed. It covers 75,000 square feet and is now used as an event space for the Queen Mary Hotel.
This is an extremely famous hangar through Europe, standing in Salzburg Austria. It was built in the 1990’s by Dietrich Mateschitz, the founder of the energy drink Red Bull. It is 71,832 square feet and currently houses one of a kind planes owned by a group of aircraft enthusiasts known as the Flying Bulls. It also holds the Restaurant Ikarus, which is a famous high- class restaurant with rotating guest chefs.
The Craziest Building We’ve Built
After we hand over a building to a client, they usually go on to make additions and put in the finishing touches that complete the space and bring their vision to life.
There are usually a few weeks to a few months between the completion of our work and the point at which the space is entirely ready for use. It’s always interesting to see what has been done with the space.
For this particular project, we knew we were in for a surprise. The building itself was very interesting; we left spaces for windows that were going to be low to the ground and asymmetrically set out. The space was long and narrow, with a bed and breakfast to go in one end and an animal pen at the other. We were intrigued.
By the time we arranged to visit the space, it had been completely reinvented. A nursery had been installed in the middle section, guest lodgings at one end and a resident llama at the other. It also became the space for cooking workshops and classes.
The wooden interior panelling looked amazing and the entire place really came together fantastically. This project had involved designers, architects, our engineers and our construction workers. And all the different moving components came together to perfectly realise the client’s vision. It’s a wonderful space that we’re proud to have built.
