Unique Project Requirements & Solutions

  • Sloped Land: The terrain of the shed was slightly sloped. The shed was built up on piers to keep the structure level, but still allowed the slope of the ground to facilitate drainage.
  • 20 Metre Span: This particular farm shed required a 19m prime mover to be easily stored undercover. We created a 20 metre span using single piece trusses. These trusses allow for a very economical shed build. They are a great size to fit farm equipment and trucks. They are also very easy to transport to the site and quick to install.

    Weather Protection: To protect again prevailing winds and weather, corrugated zinc cladding was used on the south and west facing sides of the shed.
