The New Zealand Co-op. Dairy Coy Ltd. Proposed Cheese Factory at Ngatea. Sheet No.6. Cross Section at Making Room.

Edgar Ernest Gillman
Production date
Feb 1938
This complex drawing, showing a cross section through the Making Room of a 1938 cheese factory, includes a clever perspective view of the roof framing. This drawing also shows how roof rigidity is achieved by combining struts and tie-rods to create both tension and compression in the structure. Shelves in the west wing (right side of drawing) confirm this section housed the Curing Room. The building has a complex roof line created by the lower height of the Curing Room, and this is very apparent in the cross section.
