It starts with a few ideas, followed by a thorough and thoughtful design, collaborated on extensively between you and our team. After this iterative process, a reasonable timeline is created for project completion. Once the project commences, our project managers and supervisors will work closely with you as the project progresses and implementing requested changes, as required. As completion nears, equipment and systems are installed to prepare for start-up, which includes extensive training on the installed equipment. Our goal is to ensure your happiness and satisfaction throughout every step of the construction process.
"Farmer Boy built our new quad swine barn project, housing 4800 head. They were easy to work with. Our project manager did a great job - a grea communicater and very responsive. Farmer Boy is always there when we need a part. They are very familiar with our buildings. They know how they can best help us in keeping our systems going."
