Horse Stables Construction


Experience Coresteel’s Proven Edge: Unleash Precision Engineering

This horse stables construction is a Coresteel Buildings design-build tailored to our client’s precise requirements. The groundbreaking DonoBeam system achieves an impressive 41.5-metre clear span, complemented by canopies on each end and a 5.7-metre knee height.

The design emphasises the importance of airflow, requiring perforated cladding and Dridex® roofing to maintain optimal ventilation and condensation management for the comfort and health of the racehorses.

Featuring an exterior of concrete tilt panel and iron Trimrib® cladding in COLORSTEEL® Lignite, Stonewall Stud & Stables emerges as a striking balance of sophistication and utility against Canterbury’s idyllic landscape.
