Prefabricated Steel Agricultural Buildings
It is no secret that farming equipment can be astronomically expensive. For instance, a brand-new John Deere Combine can cost anywhere from $600,000 to $900,000, depending on the features. Considering that the median home price in the U.S. is around $440,000, you can see just how comparatively expensive some of this equipment can add up to be.
For a farmer, these machines and equipment are not only expensive, but they represent their livelihood. Without their tractors, combines, or other machines, farmers would be incapable of doing their job, feeding Americans, and, most importantly, feeding their own families.
Farmers need reliable and durable agricultural buildings to store, protect, and perform maintenance on their investments so they can keep the rest of the farm working. At Titan Steel Structures, our steel agricultural buildings are the perfect solution for hard-working farmers across the United States.

Our Metal Farm Building Kits Beat the Test of Time

Advantages of Pre-Engineered Steel Farm Equipment Storage Buildings
Whether you’re storing farm equipment, crops for processing, or livestock and feed, metal farm buildings offer a variety of benefits that can save you money, increase your productivity, and protect your valuable investments.
Steel is an incredibly strong and robust material, capable of withstanding harsh weather conditions, including heavy rain, snow, wind, and even seismic activity. It provides excellent protection for livestock, crops, and equipment.
Steel agricultural buildings are highly versatile and can be customized to suit specific farm requirements. They come in various sizes and shapes, accommodating different agricultural operations such as livestock housing, storage, equipment maintenance, and crop processing facilities.
Steel buildings are generally more cost-effective than traditional construction methods. They are pre-engineered and fabricated off-site, reducing labor and construction time. Additionally, steel is a recyclable material, making it environmentally friendly and potentially lowering construction costs.
Steel requires minimal maintenance compared to other materials such as wood or concrete. It is resistant to pests, rot, and deterioration, reducing the need for frequent repairs and replacements. Regular inspections and minor upkeep are typically sufficient to keep the building in good condition.
Clear Span Design
Steel agricultural buildings can be designed with clear spans, meaning there are no interior columns or supports obstructing the space. This feature allows for efficient use of the interior, providing farmers with maximum flexibility for storage, equipment movement, and livestock housing.
Steel buildings can be designed with custom insulation systems depending on the climate, allowing for better energy efficiency and reduced heating or cooling costs. Proper insulation for your region helps regulate the internal temperature, ensuring a comfortable environment for animals, workers, feed, or stored produce.
Steel structures are easily expandable and adaptable to changing farm needs. Additional sections or modules can be added to the existing building without much hassle. This flexibility is beneficial for farms that anticipate growth or changes in their operations over time.
Steel is non-combustible and highly resistant to fire. This characteristic provides enhanced safety for agricultural operations where flammable materials, such as hay or fuels, may be stored. A fire can threaten your crops or your livestock, so this is an essential feature.
Speed of Construction and Installation
Steel agricultural buildings can be quickly erected, reducing construction time and allowing farmers to start using the facilities sooner. The pre-engineered nature of these buildings ensures efficient and accurate assembly, resulting in faster project completion.
Steel is a durable material with a long lifespan. When properly designed, constructed, and maintained, steel agricultural buildings can reliably serve farmers for decades, providing a long-lasting structure for their operations. They may even last long enough to be passed down to the next generation.

Are agricultural buildings exempt from building regulations?
You’re subject to municipal law which is different based on municipality. However, many farms are exempt from several municipal laws. However, in many states, you are subject to building regulations if you plan on creating a room of occupancy within the dwelling.
Electrical systems are never exempt from the requirements of the codes. This is because of the potential for electrical fires due to faulty electrical errors.
Please be sure to research agricultural building codes in your state prior to ordering a custom building. Find your state’s building codes here.
Are agricultural buildings exempt from planning?
An exempt agricultural building is a phrase used to describe agricultural buildings and equine facilities that are exempt from zoning requirements. In many cases, whether or not a building is exempt comes down to whether the building’s use qualifies as “agricultural use” or not. For example, some equestrian buildings don’t fall under the category of “agricultural use.”
While you should always plan your building’s development with an architect, you may not need to propose your building plans to your local government if the building is only being used for livestock or storage supplies.
Additionally, what qualifies as an exempt agricultural building can vary by state. Please be sure to research your state’s building exemptions prior to ordering a custom building. Learn about building codes here.
