Sheep yards

Coleridge Downs

Project summary

  • Sheep yard
  • Location: Rakaia, Canterbury

The harsh weather of the Rakaia Gorge means covered spaces are highly desirable to keep the station running smoothly. We worked with the team at Coleridge Downs in designing these covered yards to work within their existing yards and get the most functionality possible.

    The new yards provide extra holding capacity in addition to the existing woolshed, added handling facilities and protection from the harsh weather. While the 3-sided design of the shed offers great protection from the elements, we had to work transparent panels into the plans for both ends of the shed to allow for more natural light.

    The end result is a well-thought-out system that allows stock to flow through efficiently, saving staff time and keeping everyone dry and protected in the process.
