Customized Prefabricated Steel Structure Building Project Mills Agricultural Steel Building
Brief: An extension to the existing building was required to accommodate agricultural plant and machinery and provide shelter for sheep and lambs. The existing building as built by us in December 2014.
A lean-to design was seen to be the most practical and cost-effective building design, this could be attached to the existing building, and use the existing columns and concrete side walls, by putting on a shallower pitched roof, this maximised the roof height.
The ground levels around the existing building where generally higher than the finish floor level of the building, as the levels were reduced to accommodate the first building. This meant that the ground would require to be lowered where the new building is, and a retaining wall to hold back the higher ground
The access into the building was through a sheeted gate/door which had split upper and lower leaves, which on a day to day basis makes it easier to open. When machinery is required in the building the top doors can be opened.
The roof material used was fibre cement which suits this type of building, as there is no condensation and it is non-corrosive. The sides used Yorkshire/hit and miss boarding to allow air movement through the building. Concrete panels were used on the side below the vertical boarding to give an easy to maintain wall that doesn’t get damaged easily, is strong and can be cleaned.
We carried out the complete project; excavating the site, building the retaining wall, setting the footings, erecting the building and providing a concrete floor with a hand trowel finish suitable for sheep and machinery. When complete we fitted portable sheep enclosures that would allow them to pen the sheep and lambs.
1 - High quality and durability: The steel building is safe and reliable, and it can withstand severe environments such as fire, strong winds, and heavy rain.
2 - Faster construction: All the structure parts are prefabricated in the factory, and then installed at the construction site. As a result, it will save up to 50% time period of construction and save costs for building owners.
3 - Minimal maintenance: The exterior of a metal building is essentially maintenance-free and long-lasting. Steel does not support mold growth, resists rust and decay better than other building materials. The bottom line is that low maintenance costs lead to low operating costs - a huge benefit over time.
4 - Economical - Reasonable cost: This building form has lightweight and short construction period, thus it can be put into operation very soon. Its comprehensive economic benefits are better than concrete structure building.
5 - Environmentally friendly: The steel structure can be recycled, and it will cause less environmental pollution when being built or removed.
6 - Wide architectural possibilities: It is applicable to many industries and non-industries, such as manufacturing, agriculture and civil usage.
7- Delicate appearance: The steel building design is with a modern sense. The wall panels are available in multiple colors and the building structure is with high flexibility.
8 - Space flexibility: Larger spans for flexible interior design.
9 - Seismic Resistance: Extensive research confirms that steel structure buildings withstand significant earthquake and wind events. Watch a test building outlast earthquakes simulated at UC San Diego.
10 - Adjustable design: Can cater to future expansions (vertical and horizontal)
