Challenges and solutions

Throughout the design phase, we provided value engineering input to ensure a cost-effective end result. This included adding a steeper pitched roof on the stables, eave overhangs, and allowance for custom window and door openings.

We provided our client with advice regarding the internal layout of the stables and the entryway placement connecting the stables and the indoor arena. This proactiveness upfront made for a practical layout that helped other trades embark on the stable fit-out.

Placing the stable building at 90 degrees from the indoor arena was a specific design challenge, which we made work by incorporating internal box gutters and other structural elements.
