Van Velsen Robot Barn

Rimbey, Alberta
Design-Build Contractor

The Van Velsen dairy farm in Central Alberta is a 240 cow operation. After learning the benefits of precast concrete and experiencing the construction process from one of their previous projects with Eagle Builders, they confidently chose to work with Eagle again to build their new robotic milking facility. As all dairy barns are unique in their design, Eagle Builders worked closely with the client to base the design around cow flow and ventilation as well as convenient accessibility to equipment. The barn was equipped with a dual ventilation system, automatic alley scrapers, epoxy coated feed bunkers, overhead sunshine doors for natural lighting, and galvanized steel gating. Despite lost time due to weather challenges, the build remained on track with manpower and exceptional organization.
