City of Sale – Livestock Exchange

Another interesting custom designed project supplied and installed by Bairnsdale Engineering; a 5600m² roof cover for the city of Sale livestock exchange.

The raised centre gable section provides adequate ventilation on sale days and 13 full length panels of skylight sheeting in the roof provides ample natural light.

This project presented many challenges, especially the requirement on site to work around and over existing infrastructure. Despite the challenges, the project was completed on time and on budget.
