These farms receive birds from the nearby Monarto rearing farm, and the eggs produced will be supplied to the Murraylands hatchery, also in the region.

The four farms were planned to be constructed sequentially over 18 months, however the project was able to be completed before that time in just 14 months.

On a greenfield site, the largest challenge was the scale of civil works which prepared a 350m long flat construction pad on undulating land.  Once this was completed, the four farms, four manager’s residences and a central amenities area (including an administration building and truck wash)  brought the entire project site to 943 hectares.

With six sheds at 2000m² on each of the four farms, the footprint of each farm has considerable scale, totalling over 50,000m².

Our scope for the project also included all civil and services works including waste water which is treated and irrigated on site.



This project won a High Commendation for Commercial Construction $25m to $50m at the 2018 AIB SA Professional Excellence Awards.
