The client, Hay Australia, partners with leading dairy, beef and equine businesses throughout the world, to reliably supply quality fodder. Hay Australia engaged Wheatbelt Steel to design and build their new production facility near Yerecoin in the Victoria Plains Shire. This facility then required a supporting large open front shed for the storage of premium export grade hay. The client requested that the same creative “barcode” cladding finish on the building’s prevailing wall to match the original workshop and processing plant shed.
WHEATBELT STEEL’S ANSWER
A (120m x 52m x 9m) structural steel shed with wide span parallel cord web trusses and RSJ columns. The building included wide 8m bay spacings to allow safe and easy access for telehandler machines used to unload hay off incoming trucks and stack into the shed. All steelwork was shot blasted to Class 2 and painted with Industrial Enamel Grey (75 Microns) for a long lasting, quality finish.
“Following the experience we had with Wheatbelt doing our main process plant shed, we had no question as to who was doing our main hay storage shed. The experienced advice they offer is invaluable and they way they go about their business is very hard to find anywhere else. Once again, great job guys,” – Andrew Bolt
