The fit out can make or break a new shearing shed build.
Get it right and the result is a safe, efficient and ergonomic shearing shed.
Shearing teams will be happy, sheep will be shorn and you’ll be less stressed. And it will work for years to come.
Get the design wrong, and the opposite can be true.
Poorly designed shearing shed fit outs can result in inefficiencies, uncomfortable working conditions and frustrated shearers. Shearing becomes a more stressful time than it needs to be. And you could soon be looking to upgrade your fit out.
In other words, the fit out design is arguably the most important part of a new shearing shed build.
