Retail and office for large machinery

The team at CLAAS Harvest Centre in Gore were in need of a new showroom, workshop, and office space.The use of steel enabled an ultra-wide space to display machinery such as tractors, cultivation, and harvesting machinery and the additional soundproofing attention to the office areas ensured staff are not affected by noise from the attached workshop.



The CLAAS team had an existing building that required updating and upgrading, but they also needed additional workshop space to manage their expanding business and provide a future-proofed space for years to come.



Tuatara Structures strengthened, gutted, re-clad, re-roofed and remodelled the existing building. We then added a connecting 15 x 32 metre clear span workshop. An external clean bay, roof water collection system and full office and showroom fit-out was included in the final project.
