Northam Western Australia​

Northam is a town in the Wheatbelt region of Western Australia, the largest in the Avon sub region, and the largest inland town in the state not founded on mining.

The town of Northam is firmly situated in Ballardong Noongar country, and was known for Burlong Pool, just outside of Northam, on the Avon River.

The area of Northam was first explored by Europeans in the 1830s, and was founded in 1833 and was named after a village of the same name in England.

The initial importance of Northam declined with the growth of York and Beverley, but the shire is one of the largest in the Wheatbelt, and encompasses the towns of Bakers Hill, Clackline and Wundowie.

Northam has a hot Mediterranean climate, with cool wet winters and hot dry summers, with most years reaching above 40 degrees in the summer and below freezing in the winter. The annual rainfall of Northam is a mere 425mm, however it remains green thanks to its proximity to the Avon River and low lying position.

The areas in and around Northam are home to a vibrant farming community, and the most common forms of agriculture are livestock, grains and pulses, including wheat, barley, oats, sheep, wool, cattle, canola and hay. 

Farm sheds serve a variety of purposes in Western Australia, with such a diverse and strong agricultural industry, and this means a wide range of available farm sheds need to be available for the state’s farmers to choose from and customise.

Wheatbelt Steel offer a range of farm sheds for all industries, including Workshops, Machinery Sheds, Hay Sheds, Fertiliser Sheds, Grain Sheds, Aircraft Hangars, Shearing Sheds Equestrian Sheds and more, to ensure that your needs are not just met, but exceeded.

These sheds can be customised with roller doors or sliding doors, windows, skylights or ventilation, insulation or open bays, mezzanine floors, offices and more.

Buying a shed can be a confusing time, as there is a lot of information to process – particularly if it is your first shed, or your first time purchasing a shed. The experts at Wheatbelt Steel have been providing quality farm sheds to Western Australians for more than 40 years, and are available to help answer any questions and guide you to the best decision for you and your farm when it comes to your new shed.

The Strength of Australian Steel for the Australian Environment

The Australian environment can be cruel and unforgiving at times, and those who work in it every day, all year round, know just how harsh the weather conditions can be to structures and machinery alike, and as such how important it is to have storage that will reliably protect your vehicles, tools and other assets.

Wheatbelt Steel makes sure to use materials made from quality Australian steel, with the roof and wall sheets made from genuine BlueScope products, that have been tried and tested in the Australian outback for decades, and improved to meet and create new standards for building quality and durability.

Benefits of an In-House Engineering Team

Wheatbelt Steel has an in-house engineering team, which not only saves you money in the long run, it also enables us to provide quotes and plans much quicker, without waiting for turnaround from an external engineering company.

So if you need to change your open gable roof, add features like windows, skylights or insulation, or include additional clearance for roof heights for a mezzanine floor, you can rest assured, knowing you’re in safe hands, and the plans for your shed can be updated and modified with ease.

Farm Sheds Northam Frequently Asked Questions

While timber sheds can be aesthetically pleasing, and timber frame sheds are the more traditional style of shed, steel sheds and steel frame sheds have proven to be more durable, and often prices of steel sheds are cheaper than timber cladding sheds.

Steel sheds require significantly less maintenance than timber sheds to keep them from failing, where timber sheds and timber framed sheds require treatment and ongoing maintenance to the wooden aspects.

In most areas any structure larger than ten square meters require council approval before building can commence, which rules out even the smallest of farm sheds provided by Wheatbelt Steel.

As a registered builder, Wheatbelt Steel can look after this process for you, contacting your local shire or council and submitting all necessary documents and applications to begin construction of your farm shed.

There are a variety of farm shed types which all have different uses and meet the needs of different farming operations. Some farms will even require multiple shed types to meet all challenges faced by their location and business.

Wheatbelt Steel offers a range of Workshops, Machinery Sheds, hay Sheds, Fertiliser Sheds, Grain Sheds, Aircraft Hangars, Shearing Sheds Equestrian Sheds and more, to ensure that your needs are more than met when your shed installation is complete.

While steel has established itself as the best building material for the sheets, frame and trusses of farm sheds, it is also important to know the difference between engineered for purpose shed installations and C Purlin sheds.

Wheatbelt Steel’s engineering results in sheds that have less possible movement, prevents flexing and twisting, provides a more rigid structure, and prevents roof sag, whilst making erection a simpler and more efficient process.

Farm sheds, well maintained, can last a lifetime. With hot dip galvanised steel frames and BlueScope steel wall and roof panels, you can expect your farm shed to come with a warranty of 15, 25 or even 30 years.

Wheatbelt Steel’s range of WA locally designed and engineered galvanised steel farm sheds are designed to provide secure protection for a lifetime, guaranteed.
