Steel frame buildings designed and constructed for pig farming
When it comes to pig farming, animal welfare is one of the biggest priorities.
We help you overcome the challenges in keeping your animals happy, healthy and comfortable. Our steel frame buildings are custom made to suit your exact needs – whether that’s keeping ammonia levels down or running an effective wean to finish unit.
As a business with a rich pig farming background, we know what it takes to do what you do. And we use our expertise to ensure your pigs are given best possible conditions to live in.

When designing your pig shed, we include all the features you need to keep your animals healthy and well-maintained.

Maintaining the best conditions for your pigs
Because pigs and weaners are so sensitive to climate variations, we build in ways for you to effectively maintain temperatures.
Side roller blinds can be incorporated, helping to manage temperature naturally, rather than relying on heating or cooling systems. Automatic sensors detect weather changes and open and close blinds as needed.
Because forced ventilation affects temperature, we’ve adapted our design. Pens are laid out to train and encourage pigs to pass waste on the outer sides, rather than the middle. Scrape passages along the outer sides of the building allows for easier clean-up.
Fowler & Gilbert are committed to providing a safe, high-quality service that you can trust – that’s why we’re proud to be accredited by the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS).
Steel frame buildings to boost the productivity of your pig farm
As farm building specialists, we include features designed to make your job easier.
Structures are built using galvanised steel, which is both weather-resistant and ensures ammonia won’t corrode the steelwork.
