Bolobek shearing shed
With the old shearing shed in need of replacement, the owners of Bolobek contacted us for the design, construction and installation of a new purpose-built shearing shed. Timing was important to coordinate installation of the new shed with demolition of the old one without disturbing the farm cycle.

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.
