Quality, Integrity, Innovation

We have a proven track record of delivering high quality dairy shed builds, on time and within budget. In fact our clients are so pleased with their RBS dairy sheds that one third of our work is repeat business. 

Our existing clients know that for us, quality extends to the materials we use, the staff we work with, and the processes we have in place.  They return to us as a trusted partner, knowing we do what we say we will, and they are proud of the innovative building delivered to them.  

Our new clients enjoy the same experience, and we are proud to show you examples of our cow,sheep and goat milking shed construction. We can also arrange site visits for you to view our work in person if you wish.


Our Design Expertise Makes Things Simple For You

Good planning and great design is your key to a successful milking parlour build. You need someone who can listen to your requirements, offer practical solutions and most importantly make the whole process smooth and easy to understand.

Our construction managers, headed by Nigel Hodges, offer practical advice that comes from years of experience. They demand the best quality for you and make sure that high standards of workmanship are kept.

We co-ordinate everything from planning to council submission and approval to building, freeing you up to focus on the other aspects of your farm development.

“Having already been involved in the building of two rotary sheds in Mid Canterbury in the last ten years I was impressed with quality of work, professionalism and meeting of deadlines. The entire construction was made easy because of the excellent communication between Nigel, his staff and us. I believe Rural Building Solutions is second to none in this field.”
