Description

The scheme consisted of a brand-new state of the art facility that is fully compliant with modern animal welfare standards.
The main pennage building consists of 5 continuous bays of different span duo-pitch portal frames, while the sales rings are formed of 1 mono-pitch portal frame span perpendicular to that of the main building.
The pennage area is both clad on the perimeter and split into segregated areas internally by precast concrete panels. To enable easy entry of livestock from the external yard the one gable end of the building is completely open.
Also included in this project was a new increased width access road, calf drop off lane and external concrete service yard and drop off zone.
Both the existing storm and foul water systems needed to be diverted and renewed as part of the development.
Melton Mowbray Cattle Market has a unique feel to it with its 1000-year history and town centre presence.
