Daniel Ash Architects
Stable fit out: Killahy Equine
In the quiet lowlands of Yarra Valley, Victoria stands a beautiful equestrian property for Springside Warmbloods. Daniel Ash Achitects is a successful architect firm whose founder owns the stud, which is focused on breeding fine dressage horses.
Having designed a state of the art equestrian facility for his property, our client needed us to value engineer, fabricate and construct the building. The project scope was a roof over a 2/3 sized competition dressage arena and a separate stable complex including eight large stalls, an office, a feed and tack room.
Our scope and build details
- Structural steel drawings, engineering certification and computations.
- Building permit.
- Structural concrete engineering including raft slab design for office.
- 3D structural/shop steel drawings.
- Fabricated hot dipped galvanised steel package.
- Purlins and girts.
- Equinarail system.
- Roof and wall metal cladding.
Challenges and solutions
Our client provided us with conceptual drawings which we translated into a value engineered structural steel package. The stables lacked natural light provision which we solved by introducing unique pop up roof lights that allowed for maximum light dispersion and added a unique architectural element.
To form a reality out of our client's vision we designed the building with over hanging eaves combined with a steep roof pitch and profiled beam ends.
We took care of certification and the building permit to ensure a stress-free construction journey for our client. Additionally, our Equinarail kickrail system was implemented in the indoor arena for horse and rider safety.
