Rose Engineering has over 30 years experience working with Agricultural and Equestrian customers and has built up long lasting relationships and a strong reputation within the Agricultural industry.
We understand what is most important to farmers and our experience in the Fabrication and Erection of a whole range of Steel Framed Buildings enables us to produce buildings that are of the highest quality.

We have the advantage of being both manufacturers and erectors, therefore we can take your project through from the initial design and planning stage to completion including all groundworks, concreting, fabrication, erecting, gates & doors, fitting out and finishing meaning our clients have only one company to deal with throughout their entire project therefore reducing costs and reducing delays.

Our in-house Design Teams are able to assist in the design of any Agricultural building and will consider modern farming techniques and comply with current legislation to provide innovative building solutions, whether this is by improving layout, adapting or extending current buildings or complete new builds.

Our dedicated Planning Team can help in completing planning applications by producing all necessary documents, drawings and surveys required as well as submission to the Local Authority if required.

At Rose Engineering we are happy to work directly with the client on a complete project or as part of a team with other contractors, taking on projects both large and small from complete farm builds to individual multi-use barns for small holders.

All of our Structural Steelwork comes with CE Marking Certification and all work is carried out within Health & Safety Rules and the CDM 2015 Regulations.

With many years of experience in fabricating and erecting Steel Framed Buildings for Agricultural and Equestrian clients, we are experts in designing buildings that work for our customers whatever the intended use may be.

Our Technical & Design Teams can assist in the design of any Agricultural Building and consider modern farming techniques and current legislation to provide perfect building solutions.

We can assist in the design and planning process including submission of planning applications where required, through to steel fabrication in our own Dorset based workshop, then continue the project by completing all groundworks, concreting, steel erection, cladding and finishing as well as electrical & plumbing works and internal fit-out.

Our ability to undertake a whole project from green field site to completion can be a huge advantage to clients as it improves time-scales, consistency and costs, however we are equally happy to work as part of a team of contractors on any project.

We can provide all types of Agricultural and Equestrian buildings and facilities, these are some examples but the list is not exhaustive so please contact us if you have a specific request.



A few Examples:

Cubicle Buildings: We have extensive knowledge and experience of building cattle sheds, animal housing and cubicle buildings, including setting up and installation of internal fittings.  We take into consideration what is most important to your herd, such as controlling temperatures and ensuring good air movement to providing adequate spacing and cubicle areas.

Parlour Buildings: An increasing need for farmers to modernise and improve the efficiency of their operations means larger rotary parlours are increasing in popularity. We are able to provide you with effective solutions to install new parlours and parlour buildings, including installation of all cattle handling equipment.

Grain Stores & Feed Stores: These can be designed to suit individual customers requirements, created bespoke to cater for the needs of different crop varieties from potatoes and beans to grains with a wide range of options of equipment and finishes depending on the intended use.

Silage Clamps & Slurry Stores: We can provide solutions for open silage clamps and closed silage clamps using concrete panels, including all groundwork, concreting and drainage.  We are also able to construct Slurry Stores and upgrade existing facilities to meet current environmental standards.

Equestrian: We can provide a range of Equestrian buildings and facilities, from stable blocks, equipment stores and tack rooms to ménages, riding arenas and indoor riding areas therefore providing a building to suit any requirement.  Our Steel Framed buildings are constructed with animal welfare at the forefront, incorporating good ventilation and air flow into our designs is particularly important for exercising and stabled horses.

Re-cladding an existing building can result in improved energy efficiency, improved ventilation, improved livestock conditions, prolonged lifespan and have an immediate aesthetic impact.

Our experienced Design Team can help find the perfect solution for you.
