"Everything seems to be getting cheaper and lighter today and Wick Buildings are still there with the strength and the lumber and that's what I'm buying!"
These days an agricultural building is no longer just a barn. It’s an equipment storage shed, a warehouse, a milking parlor, a free stall barn, or a workshop. Or it combines several different uses with an office thrown in too.
No other building company knows how to build it better. After all, Wick Buildings started over 65 years ago as Wick Agribuildings – agriculture is our heritage.
The productivity of your herd depends on many variables. Wick Buildings understands how building design, cow comfort, and ventilation all work together to maximize herd health and milk production. We can help you design and build your next:
• Free stall
• Milking parlor
• Maternity barn
• Transition calf barn
• Solar barn
• Manure processing/separating facility
Farm equipment barns and storage buildings
Big tractors, combines and implements need high ceilings, big doors and lots of clear-span space. Whether you need simple storage, a machine shop, a working office area, or a combination of all of these, Wick Buildings knows how to engineer a high-quality and attractive building for years of trouble-free service.
Livestock barns and confinement buildings
Building design and ventilation play an important role in the health of your livestock. You can count on Wick Buildings to design and build efficient and healthy environments for beef cattle, sheep, swine, and poultry. Need a specialized building to handle your feed or manure? We can do that too!
Hay barns and other crop storage facilities
When harvest time comes, you need a weather-tight building to store your hay, beans, grain, or potatoes out of the elements. That building also needs to be engineered for easy access and optimal work efficiency.
Durable Materials in Every Metal Agricultural Building
Wick buildings are constructed using the finest materials, including:
Reliable, high-quality lumber: We only use machine graded or machine evaluated lumber for all structural components.
Durable steel and paint: We use full-hard steel, with 80,000 PSI hardness or better. This results in less dents. Our exterior steel is G-90 galvanized for better corrosion protection. And our paint is warrantied not to chip or crack for 40 years.
Barn Construction Costs Matched to Your Specifications
All agricultural building costs are generated for you prior to construction based on your building specification. The costs of an agricultural building will involve the following, and will vary with each project:
- Excavation, fill and other site preparation
- Design, materials and labor for the building structure
- Local subcontracted materials to finish interior/exterior if not part of the Wick package
