Reducing farm operation costs & energy consumption

The team at Hibbs General Contracting has a special passion for working with the agricultural industry. In fact, our Vice President Matt Belcher served as Director of the University of Missouri’s High Performance Building Research Center, and worked to promote the Missouri Agricultural Energy Savings Team (MAESTRO). Our agricultural building division is working to help those in the agricultural industry realizing lasting savings through sound steel construction and design, in order to reduce their overhead costs, and to help them build operational equity over time.

With smaller livestock farm operations on the rise, energy efficient cost reduction practices gain importance for preservation of our environment and the stability of small farm operation budgets. Our team works to incorporate high performance, high-efficiency construction standards such as the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE), the American National Standards Institute’s ANSI ICC-700 “The National Green Building Standard”, E.P.A.’s Energy Star and Indoor Air and Water Sense Programs.
