A project for Mr Broad of Homeleigh Garden Centre in Launceston, Cornwall.
The agricultural building is 150′ long (45.720m) by 100′ (30.480m) wide by 14′ (4.267m) to the eaves. The building has a Marley Eternit Fibre Cement roof with a natural grey finish. There is an open protected ridge on the building which ensures extra ventilation in the building which is perfect when housing livestock. As you can see below from the images this building is clad with timber Yorkshire boarding which has a spaced design to again ensure ventilation throughout the building but shelter the livestock from the weather. The building has been designed with a central 40′ (12.192m) wide apex building and then having two Lean To buildings each side of this which are 30′ wide (9.144m).
The purpose of this building is for animals to sleep in and feed from. When the building has been completed there will be a large amount of internal gates, doors and barriers which will separate the building into sections for the livestock. Around the building itself and on the outside there are shuttered walls which our erecting team J&C Martin specialise in designing. To the left of the building the walls on the outside and on the building itself will support a silage pit.
So far this project has been a success and the shell of the building has gone together perfectly.
