PROJECT UPDATE:

Cotswold Club Equestrian

October 2018

This beautiful project, designed by our sister company Equine Planning is now in its final stages with powder coated stables, arched windows and doors all installed.

The wall lights and bespoke stable post lighting is still in progress and the flexscreed floor is ready to be poured.

 

The fit out of tack rooms and luxurious riders lounge will follow shortly.

 

We have constructed the building with double glazed gables, a composite roof with a light ventilated ridge and plenty of glazed doors and windows to give a natural light and airy feel along with the all important ventilation.

 

We have also been carrying out extensive renovations to the indoor arena, this includes a new composite roof and light ventilated ridge, double glazing along both long sides which gives maximum natural light and a new riding surface along with re-cladding the exterior and rendering and painting the block work to match the stable yard.

 

We have also constructed 4 all weather turn out pens and a bespoke timber lunge  arena along with pathways from the stable yard to the amenities.

 

100 x 15m American Barn sectioned into 3 beautiful yards, each with its own facilities and a large bespoke central riders lounge.

 

Equine Construction are thrilled to have been awarded the contract to renovate an existing 115 metre long barn and transform it into what will be one of the most beautiful livery yards in the Cotswolds.

 

We began by stripping the barn back to its steel framework. All roof sheets were removed and the steels all professionally cleaned.

 

We then removed 3 bays from the building and the roof has been replaced with an Anthracite grey composite roof with clear sheets located over each stable to allow for maximum natural light.

 

The building is of block cavity construction and will be rendered externally and internally. with beautiful Cotswold Stone detailing of the arched doors, windows and a plinth at the base of the building.

 

Internally there are 3 separate sections, each with its own tack room, feed room, wash bays and solaria and the central section which contains a large luxurious riders lounge, tack room, office and shower and W/C block that sits within a beautiful arched corridor.

 

The horse areas are to be fitted with 26 powder coated Monarch Victorian stables with bespoke arched and powder coated windows to match the stables.

 

Equine Planning have carried out all design work and the build is currently underway with the roof and much of the extensive blockwork now complete.

This project was for Sparrow Oast Dressage training and livery centre.

COMPLETED PROJECT:

Private Stud, Hungerford

Despite the wettest winter on record and challenging logistical issues we have now completed the new stud with all the horses moving into their new stables at the beginning of June.

The steel framed barn is constructed in blocks with Scandinavian Redwood cladding with a composite roof with a light ventilated ridge running full length of the building.

Other aspects of this project included a Lunge arena. Fully boarding a 60 x 20m arena, preparation of road ways and parking areas for Tarmac and other associated works.

Equine Construction are renovated an existing barn with extensive groundworks to provide an 18 box yard for an up-and-coming young dressage rider.

In conjunction with Monarch Equestrian we installed 18 integral stables, a tack room, Feed room and wash down area.

 

Phase I

The existing barn had a number of block built stables built on a concrete floor that sloped from one end to the other by 750mm. The renovation required all the existing stables and internal walls to be demolished, hardcore and crushed concrete to be laid to build up the levels before laying 75m of concrete to create a new level floor. A new inner skin was created in 100mm concrete blocks to strengthen the existing timber structure along with galvanised windows built in to allow extra light and ventilation to each new stable.
