Design & Construction of Warehouse / Office complex in Karratha, WA.

Client Brief

The Shire of Cuballing called a Design and Construct Tender for a large Equestrian Arena Cover. Tenderers were given the area size to cover and required to design a cost effective building that was aesthetically pleasing.

Auspan Solutions

AUSPAN stretched the boundaries of traditional truss design and presented a proposal including a 40m clearspan curved roof design with a curved highlight/ventilation section. The aesthetics speak for themselves.


The curved structure brought some manufacturing challenges, as well as challenges in delivery to site. The trusses were transported to site in 20m sections on an extendable trailer.


  • 40m clearspan providing clear riding
  • Curved Roof design is very pleasing aesthetically
  • Custom rainwater system where all rainwater is plumped underground to the storage dam adjacent via four large PVC pipes. All rainwater directed to the four corners of the building via AUSPANS custom designed tapered gutter system.

AUSPAN Project Manager Testimonial

Very satisfying to have managed this project. Design features make it aesthetically pleasing.
Gavin Richardson – Project Manager

Interesting design that now presents very well. A landmark in the corner of the Gap Ridge industrial area.
