To help budget for your shed we’ve pulled together an approximate list of costs per m2 based on previous work completed for our clients. Prices are approximate only as actual prices may fall outside of the ranges provided.

The exact cost will come down to several variables including the height and complexity of the build.

Farm shed construction

Darren Ross hay shed 2_tile

Subject to the type of shed you require the average cost per m2 for kit-only industrial and farm sheds can be broken down as follows:

Bulk storage shed (grain shed, fertiliser shed, feed shed): $180 – $200/m2*

Typical size: Bulk storage sheds are a specialised product, so it’s difficult to determine an average size.

Compost barn, loafing barn, free stall barn: $90 – $105/m2*

Typical sizing for these barns depends completely on the size of your operations. However, we suggest you work with a minimum of 8 square meters per cow plus the feed lanes you want to include.

Hay shed/machinery shed: $115 – $120/m2* (3-sided shed)

Typical size: 40m x 21m, 32m x 18m

Shearing shed: $145 – $160/m2* (fully enclosed shed)

Typical size: 32m x 15m

Agricultural yard cover: $90 – $100/m2* (roof only yard cover)

Typical size: It is difficult to determine the average size of yard covers as all farmer’s cattle or sheep yards are completely customised.

Commercial buildings

Offices, showrooms, retail buildings, etc.

The higher the degree of complexity, the greater the input from consultants. Subsequently, you will see an increase in the cost-per-m2 ratio as reflected below.

Please note we provide design, engineering, and construction of the Colourbond and steel structure only. All other additional parts to the projects specified below need to be organised by you independently or by your commercial builder. Shed costs will differ depending on the wind region of the building location.

  • Commercial shed, Colourbond shed (structure only): $400 – $650/m2*

  • Commercial Colourbond shed with office, plumbing, electrical, landscaping, and external works: $1000 – $1500/m2*

  • Commercial precast shed with office, plumbing, electrical, landscaping, and external works: $1100 – $2300/m2*

Industrial buildings

Factories, warehouses, large workshops, etc.

Industrial buildings tend to follow the principal function over form, especially when working with industrial shed builders. Subsequently, there is less emphasis on the aesthetics of a building. The benefit of this is buildings can be more economical to build and simpler to erect than commercial buildings.

  • Industrial Colourbond shed (structure only): $350 – $ 550/m2*

  • Industrial Colourbond shed with amenities, plumbing, electrical, landscaping, and external works: $800 – $1400/m2*

  • Industrial precast shed with amenities, plumbing, electrical, landscaping, and external works: $1050 – $1950/m2*
