Long Gully Livestock feedlot

Project overview

Chris approached us to design, fabricate and install a feedlot cover designed to suit his planned cattle yard fit-out. To determine the most cost-effective solution, we explored several different designs that would suit our client’s needs.

The guttering and downpipe system needed to be designed to avoid any runoff under the feedlot, which would mean wet conditions under the cover after rainfall.

Building dimensions:

  • 24m x 120m x 5.4m

On-site build time:

  • 3 weeks

Challenges and solutions

After analysing various feedlot cover designs, the client decided on a four-gable design, which was the most cost-effective and practical solution. The client planned a yard fit-out after the structure was installed so we manufactured the columns with pre-drilled holes to accommodate for this.

All box gutters needed to be clear span to one end of the building to prevent runoff from entering the covered area of the yards.

“Central Steel Build was able to provide the feedlot cover we had designed at a competitive price on the day. The build was seamless with the company representatives easy to work with and keen to provide assistance when it was needed.”
