Goat Shed

The first stage of this structural steel shed was required to be completed in time for milking to commence on the 1st of July. Upon the receipt of the Building Permit on the 25th of May, it took a little over a month for the shed to be up and functioning; inclusive of the time allocated for design, fabrication and installation. Our client was particularly pleased with how well work on-site progressed, along with how all aspects of the project fell into place so painlessly; allowing him to meet his July 1st deadline.

Once finalised, the clear span shed will measure 26m x 102m and have the capability to house 1,000 goats. The design was also optimised with a 3.5m spring height roof to allow for multi-purpose usage; providing our client the ability to store his tractor when the shed is not in use.

Our project scope included footings, cladding and steel work. In addition to having the ability to meet a short turnaround, we also facilitated a visit with our client to another farming property which features a number of Wallandra structural steel buildings to help demonstrate our capabilities while also providing our client with the ability to garner ideas for his own structure.

We look forward to sharing more images as the second phase of construction is completed. In the meantime, please take a look at some of Wallandra’s past projects.


Ron Finemore Transport

Finemores_distribution-centreFast Facts

  • Located in Orange NSW
  • Office and transport hub
  • 95 tonnes of structural steel
  • 3500m2 floorspace
  • Four week erection timeframe

Anyone who has driven the Northern Distributor around Orange NSW will no doubt have seen the highly impressive transport hub of Ron Finemore. The distinctive building and immaculate red fleet is difficult to miss in this bustling industrial centre.

Built in 2011 and located in the ideal position to service NSW regionally and interstate, Wallandra was the local fabricator trusted to deliver the structural steel.

The site location was subject to plunging winter temperature and the occasional snow however the snow loading wasn’t factored in to the design. Working closely with Builder ArtTec building the design department of Wallandra were able to adjust the design to allow for the appropriate snow loading in the most cost effective manner for the end client.

With the updated design complete Wallandra was able to successfully supply and erect the 95 tonne of structural steel within 4 weeks.

Next time you’re in the Central West keep an eye out for the red fleet of Ron Finemore.

Resource Recovery Centre

The Resource Recover Centre presented many challenges for Wallandra, such as height, wide doorways, stepped and raised platforms, a corrosive environment, push walls for heavy machinery and the integration of equipment. Wallandra provided a design and construction solution for the footings, structure and 300mm precast walls, including the development of a unique steel restraining system for these heavily loaded precast, push walls.

Wallandra’s scope also included roofing and roof plumbing, delivering the complete building envelope, and a hassle free, risk free solution for the builder.
