During more than 30-years history ,our company has especially had two lines of business: civil works and building. Regarding the latter, the company has carried out different types of work, ranging from residential or educational buildings to industrial buildings


Precisely in this line, Detea already began his career towards the end of the 1980s. Therefore, the experience and the journey in this matter are extensive. As we will see later, this has left us outstanding completed projects


On one occasion before we already referred in the blog to the construction of industrial warehouses, and we made a special review about which structures and roofs were most recommended for this type of building. Today, we would like to complement the information related to industrial constructions focusing on the agri-food sector.


Firstly, it is worth noting what we understand by rural or farm building. These are non-residential buildings that house some type of agricultural, livestock and even forestry activity.


These include the following types of buildings:


  • Buildings for the agri-food industry. Here we have buildings for different industries, such as the meat factory or other food factories. We can find, therefore, warehouses designed to be slaughterhouses, curing facilities, cutting rooms, processing chains, refrigerated warehouses or logistics warehouses for food.
  • Livestock housing.
  • Food markets in origin.
  • Warehouses for raw materials and agricultural products.
  • Barns

Agriculture has been the basis of human consumption and economy since ancient times until today. Therefore, the construction of quality, modern and, above all, useful farm buildings is a responsibility and an exciting challenge for construction companies.



The evolution of agri-food buildings in our country dates back to past centuries, but it is from the beginning of the 90s when people began to take an interest in creating more hygienic warehouses with materials that are easy to clean. Likewise, precast concrete began to be used more assiduously for structures and also for walls or roofs. Other materials used are stainless steel and plastics.


On the other hand, special emphasis is placed on the lighting and ventilation of agri-food buildings.


Besides, taking into account that fortunately society is progressing more and more towards a sustainable world, respect for the environment is also essential in the creation of warehouses. For this reason, from that time on, issues such as water purification, with a high pollutant load, among other new updates that have been added over the years, have begun to be prioritized.


As we said before, Detea’s career in this field is extensive. For this reason, we will now point out some of the agri-food industrial constructions carried out.

Improvements to the Aggraria  Lagar LDA olive mill
