Challenges and solutions

There were substantial design features introduced to achieve the vintage Australian shearing shed style including a 25 degree roof, corrugated cladding and horizontal wall cladding. It was critical to ensure the working drawings and structural drawings married together without clashing to provide an easy and seamless onsite construction.

We worked with our client in designing the extra steelwork to accommodate the future cafe area including large glazed windows. A hip roof design was introduced to ensure the multiple rooflines were aesthetically pleasing.
