Challenges and solutions

The yard cover needed to attach or be constructed right next to the existing shearing shed. To avoid potential engineering problems of attaching the new yard cover to the shearing shed, we chose to build it as a free-standing structure right next to the shed.

We worked with the sheep yard manufacturing company and the farm manager to ensure the yard cover design would enhance the shed and yard's workability rather than impede its practicality. There were several levels of detail our team investigated to ensure a successful build, including making sure the yard cover columns would not interfere with the existing shed's layout. The yards company removed the existing sheep yards before installing the new set-up.

We designed the yard cover to have sufficient clearance for farm equipment underneath. Additionally, we included an apron on the Western side to help limit weather exposure.
