A sector where national traditions and requirements are the most diverse. The basic categories are storage, animal husbandry, animal production, food growing units to an increasing leisure sector. Most of the constructions in this sector are based on covering the greatest area for least cost. For many of the storage and animal husbandry projects are typically steel portal framed buildings with reinforced concrete frames more common in southern European countries. The levels of enclosure and insulation reflect the prevailing climatic conditions. The additional M&E services are at a low level in the basic constructions. However like most industries there are more automated systems and clever technologies being introduced and experience of such measures are becoming more international. Food production structures has seen the application of the latest technology with controlled environment provisions becoming more common. Automatic, computer controlled greenhouses being a good example. The leisure experience to include equestrian projects are increasing but there is little commonality throughout Europe for these constructions.
