With an unrivalled knowledge of construction in the poultry industry, the Jaques family have been successfully designing and constructing high quality broiler buildings for over 40 years.

Broiler poultry housing is designed to meet the latest industry welfare standards, taking into account the number of birds housed, specific poultry integrator requirements, type of ventilation, feeder and drinker equipment required.

Functional, cost effective, bespoke steel or timber framed buildings are designed with efficiency and sustainability in mind, helping to build and future proof poultry businesses.

Designed and built to last using high quality materials, most broiler poultry units are ventilated with third party ventilation systems, often incorporating:
– Side wall air inlets
– Roof air extraction fans
– Large belt driven end wall fans

Alternative ventilation systems can include tunnel or natural ventilation. In addition to ventilation systems, air scrubbing units are becoming increasingly more popular.

Windows to provide natural light to the buildings are installed as standard. High quality toughened double-glazed units are used to prevent excessive heat loss in cold weather or solar heat gain in hot weather. Insulated black out covers are operated on motor driven rack and pinion systems. Manual operation is also possible.

Tailored specifications incorporate additional insulation, solar (PV) panels or green energy technology as required.

The service and control room areas are designed to house the equipment and electrical panels that operate ventilation, lighting, feed and drink systems.

Biosecurity measures to protect against disease are incorporated as standard. These can include double-barrier boot change systems, full shower facilities and changing areas. Storage rooms are a favoured addition, as well as toilets and other welfare options.

Canopies over the main building access doors are popular, these can include curtains to limit light during the catching process.
