Agricultural sheds

Broadacre farming often requires large sheds to store feed, machinery, and crops. Sheds with wide clear-span openings allow for easy access for large machinery like harvesters.

Our shed designs are built to last over 50 years. Each structure is custom designed and value-engineered and all of our columns and trusses are made from Australian steel and are hot-dipped galvanised for maximum strength and durability.

The average cost for a kit-only machinery/hay shed: AUD$99,000.00* for a 40m x 18m three-sided building.

Equestrian arenas

Large equestrian buildings often refer to full-sized indoor dressage arenas, jumping arenas, and stable complexes. We have a wide range of experience in building for different equestrian sports such as dressage, showjumping, eventing, reining and western dressage, and riding. Your equestrian building is designed around you and your horse’s needs, maximising usability, safety, and performance.

The average shed cost for an indoor riding arena: AUD$210,000* for a 61m x 21m roof-only structure including installation.

Commercial buildings
