We aim to forward a letter & brochure to you within 24 hours of the initial contact. We will give you a follow-up call within 3-5 days of sending the letter & brochure to answer any questions you might have, from here we can provide further quotes as necessary or arrange for one of our designers to visit your site to complete an on-property design.
We aim to complete your on-property design (OPD) within four weeks of request/Atlex receiving the signed OPD form and mud map. Our unique On-Property design service is especially beneficial when incorporating existing features into a new yard design or yard renovation.
One of our designers will visit your site to carry out our on-property design service, we discuss with you all your requirements and survey the site using the latest surveying technology (Robotic Total Station) which gives us the capability of having millimeter perfect details when locating existing structures such as sheds, fence lines, trees, dips, roads, power, water & air services, holding yards and loading facilities to be incorporated into the design.
Atlex was the first stockyard company to adopt this technology and we remain the innovators.
YARD DESIGN & OPTIONS
We draw up a custom computer-aided design and merge the survey data from the Robotic Total Station (RTS) into the design layout with exact precision. Whether you are considering yard renovations or a complete new system, your design can incorporate the most innovative features such as adjustable tapered races for both sheep and cattle, 360° gate hinges, manways with dog flaps, two-way sliding gates, Atlex spring release gate catches and raised walkways, all manufactured from high tensile galvanized pipe for extra strength and durability. We forward the draft design to you for your comments and make amendments as necessary.
Once you are happy with your design we provide a quote for the full design and smaller stages. You may wish to have your new sheepyards or cattleyards Built in Stages with a Long-Term Plan in mind. Flexibility and working within your budget are our priorities.
ORDERING & MANUFACTURING
One you have agreed on the design and wish to proceed with the yards we issue you with the sale paperwork which details the yards to be supplied. We require a 40% deposit & signed agreement form to enable your order to be added to the manufacturing schedule and the 60% balance is paid at least one day prior to dispatch from the Atlex workshop.
We personally deliver your yards to site to ensure that all your items arrive safely. We unload the yards & stack neatly in close proximity to the site ready for construction. We only ask that you provide a tractor with forks to help unload heavy items such as ramps.
When you proceed with the yards we ask that you prepare the site prior to stake out. We provide you with a comprehensive site preparation hint sheet to aid you in preparing your site. The design is put back into the RTS survey equipment to allow us to stake out the exact post positioning of all structures with millimetre precision for construction.
We provide you with comprehensive construction guide sheets with helpful hints on how to put your new yards together or you may wish to opt for one of our experienced construction contractor crews to do the construction for you.
