Project: cattle housing unit
Location: Wyndham Farm, Caldbeck
We were approached by Mr Ray Faulder of Lakes Walling Systems, who were acting on behalf of Mr Thomas Todd of Wyndham Farm, which is located in the northern fells of Cumbria. The farm needed to re-build its cattle housing unit to include slurry storage and undercover facilities whilst improving animal welfare and overall efficiency.
The project provides a good example of our flexible way of working and willingness to adapt to different requirements.
- The bulk of the excavation work was done by Mr Todd himself
- Lakes Walling concreted the floor and erected vertical panels to form the tank walls
- Wolfenden precast columns were then erected to support various sizes of cattle slats and precast cubicle beds, which were laid out head to head to form a complete suspended floor over the storage tank. We also supplied the unit with double sided precast feed troughs.
