Dakota Flower Company
Dakota Flower Company is a wholesale grower and distributor of a wide range of flowers including orchids, roses, tropical foliage, lilies and Australian natives.
The flower distributors needing an undercover processing facility contacted us to design and construct the building. The facility was for processing freshly picked flowers. Additionally, it needed to have room for machinery storage and a cool store dispatch area.
Our scope and build details

Challenges and solutions
To optimise the production area, 12m openings in the sides of the building were required. To achieve this we designed structural clearspan trusses, allowing for the removal of a column.
Our client needed a solution for obstruction-free access into the building for equipment and delivery trucks. We achieved this by upgrading the main shed columns and adding 9m wide cantilevered canopies into the design.
