Challenges and solutions

The best solution for covering the feed lanes was to design two 9m wide cantilevered canopies off each side of the barn. These canopies would have no external posts to allow for easy movement of machinery underneath. We also provided a gable infill on the western end wall to assist in maintaining a consistent climate inside the barn. We were also able to assist Simone with her council approvals and construction certificate for the building.

“We’re very excited to be moving into our new Central Steel Build dairy barn and there is nothing we would change about the end product. The installers used by Central Steel Build were extremely efficient and professional and we’re very pleased with how it has turned out.”
