Project description:
This farm is situated in Dromolaxia, Larnaca and it hosts 900 sheep and goats. It comprises two buildings; a shed that is used for animals stabling purposes and a single story building which accommodates the milking facilities and the administration offices. The steel shed, with plan area 1,782 m², has braced, dual span, duopitch roof. Its structural system is classified as moment resisting frame along the primary horizontal direction and as concentrically braced frame, with x-diagonal braces, along the secondary direction. The same design practice was implemented for the other building, which covers an area of 312 m². The foundation of both structures is composed of spread footings interconnected with a grid of tie beams.
