SPANBILD STEEL TECHNOLOGY OFFERS COST EFFECTIVE SOLUTION FOR DAIRY INDUSTRY
With the dairy industry now established as the backbone of New Zealand’s rural economy, farmers are increasingly looking for innovative and cost-effective solutions to support their operations and protect their investment in machinery, plant and livestock.
As part of a new dairy development in the central North Island, Totalspan Manuwatu was approached to build a large shed to house a rotary dairy milking platform by the project’s main contractors, ABC.com Construction.
On a tight construction schedule, with less than a month to complete, the company built a 22-metre long by 22-metre span shell, designed to specification to house a 60-bale rotary.
As well as the tight project timeframe, the site meant working around a challenging machinery platform, with irregular surfaces necessary for the milking operation. It was also necessary to adapt to the local conditions to complete the project to schedule.
Spanbild was responsible for the design, manufacture and construction of the complete structure of the shed, from pre-cast panel walls and roofing, to the interior cladding.
The building also included a range of additional design specifications, with extensive bird proofing to adhere to hygiene regulations, and a clean, durable finish on the inside walls so the shed could be easily and efficiently cleaned out after use.
Developed to cater to a minimum of 1000 dairy cows, the completed Spanbild steel technology dairy shed is a time efficient, long-lasting and affordable solution designed to maximize the investment of this local dairy operation
BESPOKE COMMERCIAL DESIGN A NEW ZEALAND FIRST
Developing a smart
new look for a recognised global restaurant chain – and delivering it in
just three months – underscored the value
of Spanbild Projects’ engineering and production capabilities. The latest Christchurch Burger King restaurant
at the Z Energy service station on Curletts Road
is unlike any other in
New Zealand, with a unique design and distinctive finish that provides a local twist for
an international brand.
“The unique capabilities of Spanbild Projects, combining design, engineering and
project management, as
well as access to large scale proprietary manufacturing and relationships with the country’s leading suppliers, in our view made us an ideal partner for these kinds of commercial projects,” says Spanbild Projects General Manager
A worldwide restaurant chain, Burger King has 82 stores all over New Zealand, including
a number that are co-located with other businesses.
“We really started from scratch and rethought how we could
do things so the process would be simpler and easier,” says Antares Restaurant Group construction manager Brendon Peirce. “Working directly with the engineers was really good.
We had completely open use
to a project.”
