Spaceframe was awarded a contract to replace the rusty roof of one of Fonterra’s farm in China built by a local contractor.

The main work scope was the replacement of rusty purlins, cladding and to the repaint of all main steel structure.

Because the cows had to go through the construction area for the milking process, in a daily basis, all the iron scrap and screws were removed by using magnets. For the safety of the cows, all construction work had to stop when they were near the working area.

Our site team main challenge was to ensure the safety of the workers and the cows while working on a highly fragile roof and without interfering with the farm daily operations.

Spaceframe management received great customer feedback and we are now considered a supplier of choice for all future Fonterra’s roof replacement works.
