Agricultural steel buildings for use in the pig industry are varied and multifaceted. Piggery housing sheds need to be designed for specific pen requirements and these we know change depending on whether the steel structure is to house weaners or sows, or whether they'll be used as boar houses.

In addition we know that the floor layout requirements have a significant impact on the final size of the structure and this needs to be considered prior to commencing the building design.Our team of Project Managers has worked extensively in this agricultural sector and understands the nuance differences that exist between the various housing needs.

Good, efficient housing makes management easier and helps the farmer to successfully rear 85 % or more of all the live born piglets to market weight in the shortest possible time.

Pigs at different stages of growth need different environments (temperatures). If they are to produce and grow to their maximum potential piglets need special protection against very low temperatures. Growing and reproducing pigs must be protected against high temperatures.
