Our favourite projects of 2022

In the past twelve months, we’ve been busily working on sheds all over Australia. With material shortages and unpredictable weather, it sure has been a wild ride for the shed-building industry. Despite all of the challenges, the ABC Sheds team is proud of what we have achieved, with 170+ new sheds being built across the country. 

To inspire your next shed, we thought we’d share a few of our favourites from 2022 with you. From large industrial buildings to loafing barns, our team share all of their highlights. Find out what they had to say below.

Favourite project: Loafing barn

Location: Korumburra, Victoria
Shed size: 152m x 21m x 5m

Built for a client in Korumburra, this farm shed was a favourite for its impressive scale. To provide optimal efficiency for livestock management, we built a whopping 152m long loafing barn with a full wall of concrete panels and steel cladding. 

By protecting animals from the weather and allowing plenty of room to move inside, this barn has already improved the farm's productivity. Paired with a concrete slab along its entire length, this shed is sure to keep both farmers and cattle happy for decades to come.

Features include:

  • Large concrete panels
  • 19 bays at 8 metres wide
  • Hot-dip galvanised columns and trusses.

Favourite project: Industrial shed and stable building

Location: Jindabyne, New South Wales
Shed size: 20m x 14m x 7m

In the town of Jindabyne near the Snowy Mountains, this industrial shed was a fun challenge for our team. The client needed a large steel shed with Aircell insulation, skylights, and clearance for a 5-tonne gantry crane. In addition, the cold climate meant the shed had to be engineered for heavy snow loads.

Conquering the rocky terrain, we worked closely with the client to bring this practical shed to life. The result is a durable shed with a spacious 7m roof clearance, powder-coated runway beams, a classy Colorbond Monument finish, and a cantilevered awning over the door. This way, the team can easily access the shed whatever the weather. 

Taking advantage of our two-shed deal, the client decided to construct a stable building as well. Being four hours away from our factory in Young allowed us to complete both projects simultaneously, providing a cost-effective, streamlined service. 

Features include:

  • Monument Colorbond finish
  • Cantilevered awning
  • Personal access doors are inset into the sliding doors
  • Powder-coated crane runway beams
  • Translucent sheet skylight.

From the initial concept to construction, view the progress of this shed below!
