[Rongotea Co-op. Dairy Co. Ltd. Rongotea Butter Factory] Drawing No.5. Details

Maker
Edgar Ernest Gillman
Production date
08 Nov 1910
Description
The detail view of this 1910 butter factory shows how Gillman has placed a concrete beam above each of the side walls to support the heavy tie beams that span the structure. Also clearly visible is the way that the cement plaster has been extended up the side walls above the line of the concrete footing. The roof framing uses a combination of tension (tie rods) and compression (struts) to ensure a rigid structure.
