Prefab. Steel Greenhouse in Culbertson, Montana

When a business owner in Culbertson, Montana, needed a durable, reliable metal building for agricultural use, he tasked Sunward Steel with fabricating and supplying it.

Sunward Steel delivered, sending this steel farm building to the buyer’s erection site in October 2020. Now in use as a greenhouse, the building serves double-duty as an indoor place to grow plants and a safe, covered space to store them during inclement weather. The building took shape much faster than a similar wood building would have, as its pre-engineered components arrived onsite already partially assembled, saving the owner serious money on construction costs.

Sunward also engineered the farm building to meet or exceed local building codes, helping it maintain its functionality and durability in the face of Montana’s variable temperatures and weather patterns.
