Agricultural halls

… are buildings containing a hall serving to house and store agricultural goods and equipment. Agricultural halls are used to store potatoes, as sheds for farm machines and vehicles, and as riding halls. Depending on the form of use, agricultural halls can open or closed structures that are insulated or non-insulated.   

Agricultural halls are primarily buildings with a steel and wood load-bearing structure, featuring insulating sandwich elements or non-insulating metal and wood facades (Gruhler, Deilmann 2015).
