Providing durable commercial barn construction for the Front Range since 1937.
Agricultural buildings are more than just a barn—they serve many purposes, including workspace, storage, and more. Calahan Construction is your ultimate agricultural building contractor. We’re here to serve you and all your farming needs.
For over eight decades, Calahan Construction has provided farmers with long-lasting agricultural buildings for their everyday business. We’re proud to work with local harvesters and help them build facilities for:
Farming equipment and storage buildings require tall ceilings, open floor space, and large doors to contain all your tractors and combines. Calahan Construction understands your need for efficient storage space, and our team is equipped to engineer a sound and built-to-last structure.
Crop storage and hay barn facilities need to be weather-proof to sustain any temperature or condition. Calahan Construction understands how important your crops are and how vital it is to ensure they remain usable for your farming operations. Our customer-focused approach enables us to provide the best for your business and its operations.
If you need a sufficient cow, sheep, or horse barn for your farm, Calahan Construction is your go-to agricultural building contractor. For 84 years, we’ve helped farmers throughout the Front Range design and build facilities that last and protect their livestock from any weather that comes their way.
An insulated workshop is a productive workshop. Calahan Construction is here to help you build, renovate, or make additions to your workshop to ensure a workspace that’s comfortable and functional for your daily activities.
We suggest implementing a steel agricultural workshop for a practical workspace setup because they are low maintenance, long-lasting, and energy efficient. They allow your workspace to retain a comfortable temperature while continuing to keep utility bills low.
Dairy operations are vital day in and day out, and often the productivity of the herd is dependent on the cows’ comfortability. At Calahan Construction, we maximize dairy buildings to ensure the cows’ comfort and provide a streamlined workspace for the farmers. Our experience in designing and renovating free stalls, milking parlors, maternity barns, manure processing facilities, and more, allows us to provide the best barn for your operations.

Calahan Construction practices post-frame—also known as pole barn—construction for commercial farm buildings. Post-frame construction is a building method that uses large posts to create a building that maximizes the structure’s interior square footage. Compared to stick frame construction, our post-frame structures require less framing, so they are constructed quickly—while maintaining durability—at a lower cost.
There are many differences between pole barn buildings and stick frame construction. Aside from being quicker to assemble and more affordable, post-frame construction also:
At Calahan Construction, we want you to get the most use out of your agricultural building. Since post-frame construction utilizes large posts to develop the building’s structure, these commercial buildings don’t need interior walls for additional support. This creates more interior barn space for your workshop, equipment storage, livestock, crops, and more.
We want to help you develop a barn that will last, which is why most of our post-frame structures are outlined with steel or metal building panels. Although they can be finished with any exterior surface, steel and metal are most often used because of their durability and longevity. Steel farm buildings also withstand high winds and water damage without causing harm to the frame or any equipment, crops, or animals inside.
Unlike stick frame structures, pole barn buildings are constructed on cement columns anchored in the ground or mounted on a slab. Without laying a basement foundation, you’re able to save construction time and business resources for your other farming necessities.
Stick frame building posts are required every 16 to 24 inches to remain stable. On the other hand, Calahan Construction post-frame buildings only require posts every 8 feet. As a result of wider spacing, insulation material can be thicker with fewer breaks in between. This minimizes the risk of energy transfer between indoor and outdoor temperatures, making post-frame structures more energy efficient than stick frame buildings.
