Challenges and solutions

The saleyard cover design started as a sketch on the back of an envelope and from that we worked with MKM Constructions and other stakeholders to pull together a 30,000m2 roof design on budget and purpose-built. A collaborative approach was used to ensure all pain points and potential problems were addressed in the design stage to ensure a smooth construction process.
