OVERVIEW

While this was an existing dairy farm, John and Wendy made the bold move to centralise the new dairy on their property – a ‘greenfield site’.  Bison worked carefully with John to design his sheds from early concepts and saw the project through to a very successful finish.  Bison demonstrated a short on-site erection timeframe by constructing both buildings together.  

This also reduced labour and crane hire costs, ensuring the project was completed within budget.

From the start, great people to deal with, flexibility, design concepts, no matter how many times I changed my mind it wasn’t a problem...
