Hesket custom barn
Our client's private property is located in the picturesque rolling hills of Hesket, Victoria below Mt Macedon.
Our client had a very particular brief for his dream custom barn, going to the expense to engage a renowned architect to develop working drawings that could be turned into a steel package.
The building's ground level was designed for storage and a potting shed. The first level needed to be a clearspan loft intended for holding functions. All external elements of the building needed to blend in with the landscape and existing architecture on the property.
Our scope and build details
- Structural steel drawings, engineering certification.
- Engineering computations.
- Structural concrete engineering.
- 3D structural/shop steel drawings.
- Fabricated hot dipped galvanised steel package.
- Purlins and girts.
- Roof cladding and insulation.
- Framed openings for client issued windows and doors.
- Wall batons to accommodate weatherboard wall cladding.
- Staged building permit.
Challenges and solutions
Working on a tight site, constructing the custom forty-six degree roof on such a high building presented a number of challenges that were overcome by staging the build and allowing sufficient access for all trades as they required it.
To allow for maximum storage space on the ground floor, large clear span bearers were installed in the subfloor design. We worked closely with the architect and our client's builder to account for all details and provide a streamlined construction process.
"I approached a couple of shed companies and asked them what can you do they said 'sheds are sheds' but Central Steel Build is creative and we asked can you do it? They said yes, of course, we can.
There was an issue with the columns, straight away they were looking for a solution and straight away they found a solution, the thing was sorted out - No tears for anyone.
The whole process was seamless and easy. The building is exactly what we need - Central Steel Build has big tick from us, we love them."
