Birchdale Dairy

Ashburton Team Completes Another Dairy Shed

29/09/2015 - Ashburton - Our Ashburton construction team has completed another rural project, this time a 60 bale rotary dairy shed, located between Dunsandel and Darfield on the banks of the Selwyn River. “The Birchdale Dairy Shed was quite demanding,” says Calder Stewart Divisional Manager DONALD SUTTON, “but it all came together well at the end of the day.”

Built for farmer and leading cardiac surgeon from Auckland, PAGET MILSOM, the project came through a referral from DAVID BARLASS, who had previously worked with Calder Stewart on the construction of his own shed. The Design and Build project was based on a neighbouring dairy shed, but featured some unique complexities and design work.

Some of these complexities involved the construction of the large milking platform itself, the design of which called for a lower elevation. Additionally all pit, milking area and nib walls were custom designed and supplied by Calder Stewart Precast.

“The most challenging aspect to the build was the tight time frame,” adds Donald. “Paget needed the shed up and running by a specific date, which gave the team three and a half months to complete. We ended up bringing in some extra workers to help meet expectations and Paget himself helped the process along by being very involved in the project: a great client to work with.”

“Everyone worked incredibly hard on the project and went above and beyond to meet targets. Particularly outstanding work came from Project Manager TIM WESTWOOD and Contract Carpenter SIMON ROSS, who both worked tirelessly to cross the line.”
