Japanese Cowshed

Our prefabricated steel buildings are one of the best solutions for agriculture. Steel buildings offer long-lasting protection from natural disasters, protect livestock, infestations, and other common issues that you may run into when storing your farming equipment. Whether you’re operating a personal or commercial farm, iBeehive agricultural buildings can be fully customized to your specifications.

Our agricultural steel buildings feature clear span framing, providing column-free interiors that maximize space. Steel construction is the ideal solution for modern agricultural operations, offering durability, low maintenance, and affordability. Whether we’re designing your barn, hay storage building, or a building to house your machines and equipment, our goal is to provide you with a structure that is easy to erect and affordable.

All projects are based on in-house design, manufacturing and assembly

iBeehive is one of the only companies on the market to control the entire process of supplying steel buildings from the initial sketch of the client’s idea on paper to manufacturing to completing the building assembly, so it can effectively guarantee quality at each stage of the supply.

A time-tested system from 23 years of iBeehive

iBeehive’s agricultural buildings serve global clients such as Canada, Norway, New Zealand, Fiji, Panama, Japan and many more. We have a deep understanding of the building features and the safest solutions required in different environments and geographical locations.

Experience with more than 200 completed buildings

The system has always placed emphasis on flexibility and reasonable price, which is why it is a viable solution for small and medium-sized businesses today. The proof of the popularity of this system is in the number of completed agriculture steel building, which has exceeded 200 in global.

Easy modification of the system if needed

For example, a building with casing without insulation can be fitted with insulation at a later stage, enlarged with additional modules or divided as needed. Last but not least, the iBeehive steel building system allows for dismantling a building and erecting it again in another location.

Environmental knowledge and combined requirements for a building

Examples include: potential corrosive properties according to farming activities, hazards due to inclement weather like snow or wind loads, energy efficiency on the site etc.

A strong company with a stable background and service capabilities

2 modern manufacturing plants, 380 employees, business across 6 continents, and a development area of more than 1.7 million square meters.

You Should Know

What is steel structure agricultural building?

The steel structure agricultural building is mainly composed of H-section steel, C-section steel, and Z-section steel combination or construction frame and other components made of section steel and steel plate. Each structural building part is connected by welding, bolting, or riveting.

How much does it cost to build a steel agricultural building?

There are many factors affecting the construction cost to build a agricultural building, and issues such as raw materials, design, construction period, livestock facilities, are all factors that affect the cost of steel structure agricultural building.

Steel Agricultural Building VS Traditional Concrete Building

The concrete structure is suitable for multi-high-rise buildings with large loads and dense column networks (such as multi-store factory buildings, multi-store warehouses, office buildings, dormitories, etc.), as well as buildings with high requirements for fire prevention, corrosion resistance, or airtightness (such as chemical, Biomedical projects, etc.);

The steel structure is more suitable for large-span, large cantilevered single-story buildings (implement warehouse, cow shed, stable etc.) with smaller loads, and lower requirements for fire protection, corrosion resistance, or airtightness building.

What You Should Know About Steel Structure

1. High Strength And Light Weight
The strength of steel is high, and the modulus of elasticity is also high. Compared with concrete and wood, the ratio of density to the strength of steel is lower, so under the same stress conditions, the section of steel structure is small, light-weight, easier to transport and install, suitable for large span, high height, and heavy load structure.

2. Good Toughness And High Reliability
The steel is suitable for withstanding impact and dynamic load and has excellent seismic performance. Its internal organization structure is uniform, close to an isotropic homogeneous body. The actual working performance is more in line with the calculation theory. Therefore, the steel structure has high reliability.

3. High Degree Of Mechanization
Steel structural components are easy to be manufactured in factories and assembled on site. The factory mechanized manufacturing of steel structural components have high precision, high production efficiency, fast assembly speed, and short construction period. The steel structure is the most industrialized structure.

4. The Steel Structure Has Good Sealing Performance
Because the steel structure is a welded structure, it can be completely sealed and made into a high-pressure vessel, large oil pool, pressure pipe, etc. with good air-tightness and water-tightness.

5. Steel Structure Is Heat-Resistant And Not Fire-Resistant
When the temperature is below 150°C, the properties of the steel change little. Therefore, the steel structure is suitable for hot workshops, but when the surface of the structure is exposed to heat radiation of about 150 ℃, it should be protected by a heat insulation board. When the temperature is between 300℃ and 400℃, the strength and elastic modulus of the steel will decrease significantly, and when the temperature is about 600℃, the strength of the steel will tend to zero. In buildings with special fire protection requirements, refractory materials must be used for protection to improve the fire resistance level.

6. Poor Corrosion Resistance
Steel is prone to rust in a humid and corrosive environment. Generally, steel should be galvanized or painted and should be maintained regularly. For offshore platform structures in seawater, special measures need to be taken to enhance corrosion resistance.

7. Green And Environmental Protection
Demolition of steel structure buildings will produce almost no construction waste, and the steel can be recycled and reused, which is very environmentally friendly.

How to install agricultural prefabricated steel buildings?

The steps of steel structure installation will vary according to the specific engineering situation and installation method, but the usual steel structure installation steps include the following stages:

Steel structure installation requires the use of various professional tools and equipment to ensure the quality and safety of steel structure installation. When using these devices, safety operating procedures must be followed to protect the safety and health of workers.
It is worth mentioning that we can provide the necessary installation tools and livestock facilities for you.
