Challenges and solutions

The farm owners envisaged a heritage styled shearing shed that was designed for purpose with a full internal fit out. We worked with our client and Proway to design a highly functional building whilst maintaining the required external aesthetics. 

After discovering challenges of site levels we met with Proway and the install team on-site and made practical modifications to the design which solved the issues. 

Due to the historically important location, a lot of overlays on the property required a planning permit for the new shearing shed. We assisted our client through the planning process to ensure a smooth journey and successful outcome.
