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

Average cost for a kit only machinery/hay shed: AUD$90,000.00* for a 40m x 18m three-sided building.

Equestrian Arena


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.
