Pierpoint Farm received the Waverley Design Award 2011 for their Timber Framed Dairy Unit project, clad with EUROSIX Anthracite Fibre Cement roof sheeting.
This new Dairy unit at the farm was specified by The Countryside Restoration Trust and many features required intensive consideration before construction could take place. Animal welfare is of course a major part of any Agricultural construction and this required specific natural ventilation systems at the ridge.
The multi span building complex of 3,000m2 features various duo and mono pitch roof slopes clad with Eurosix Anthracite Fibre Cement sheeting supplied by Briarwood Products . The timber frame building has wide, cattle friendly aisles, spacious stalls with sand bedding and has been designed for the complete operation to be run as environmentally friendly as possible. As well as the cubicles there are 2 fully automated Fullwood Merlin Robotic milking system, 2 calving sheds, loose yards an office with large meeting room on site which encourages local school visits.
