Riordan Grain, Lara – An Enormous Building
This huge grain shed has been spectacular to watch go up. We visited it a while ago, and it’s now getting closer to completion.
It’s hard to get a sense for just how big it is, keep an eye for people in the video below for scale:
Solariums and chandeliers: A look at our most luxurious horse facility
Central Steel Build designs and constructs steel buildings. The fitting out is done separately by others.
Our buildings become a space for some of the most incredible facilities in Australia. This amazingly lavish horse arena was fitted with solariums, offices, viewing rooms and even chandeliers.
It’s a great example of what can be done if you have the time and money. For this project, the owners really decided on the best available for each option.
Let’s take a look at some of the finer details:
Wood grain panelling is the most expensive option for kickboards, but it also looks the best. The perimeter of this arena has been fitted with high quality wood and it looks great.
This is another real luxury that is certainly worth the effort. Putting a viewing room in your building that looks out onto the arena is a great idea. It’s also a good investment, and makes it easier for you to host events at your arena.
This building was full of high end facilities like solariums. They make the arena much more functional. One of the first questions that needs to be answered when building an arena is How will the arena be used? It’s all about making sure the functionality is there to meet your needs.
This is our favourite part! A lot of great design and interesting building techniques were used for this project. The building combines a traditional barn-style look with contemporary details. The use of wood and steel looks wonderful together and the light fittings and stone details add charm to the place.
This is certainly one of the most visually impressive projects we’ve built. It’s great working with a client who is so aware of how the building itself will be affected by the details and facilities that go into it. It’s a beautiful building.
