“We have been delighted with the performance of the Santrev team as they delivered the construction of 2 x 40,000 bird broiler sheds for us at Nichols Poultry during our Tasmanian winter.
From sales and administration to the team on the ground, their whole project was undertaken very professionally and with excellent client focus.
The guys were well organised, well managed, well trained, and flexible enough to work with the challenges of the weather and ground conditions.
We look forward to working with them on any future projects.”
Tasfoods Project Manager
“Santrev sheds are built to perfection and to produce excellent results which we growers want. We always try to be on top of the pool as well as save cost on energy. To me, the sheds are designed by Santrev in such a way that always with the good result we can run sheds economically. I love Santrev sheds and thanks for helping chicken growers save money as well as producing awesome results.”
“I chose Santrev because of the previous build at Tamrookum and also the experience of the company. The weather really hampered our build, once Santrev knew our expectations and with Mathew Fleming and Adam Berry in control, the build went smoothly. Santrev has introduced new systems and documentation process which have assisted the build. Special note to Matt and Adam who were great to work with”.
“Santrev has constructed 4 sheds for Farm Pride Foods at Nathalia, for which I was the assigned Project Manager representing the Principal.
Santrev’s build has been of an excellent quality. A good relationship was developed with Heino Voogd, the Santrev Project Manager on the project with communication a highlight. Tony Kelleher, the site Supervisor, was a pleasure to deal with and was always well planned and organised ensuring build schedules were accomplished.”
“Santrev came highly recommended by other growers, they understand the industry and were accommodating of our design and farming ideas. Adam the Project Manager, Matt and Steve the Foremen and all of the builders and laborers on our project made sure that our Santrev experience was great. They worked in with our existing operation, especially during our recent TC Debbie repairs. Nothing was ever a drama.”

“Initially I chose Santrev because of their professional and courteous approach to the quotation process. They were very informative and clearly had a comprehensive grasp on industry requirements.
Thereafter I continued to do business with Santrev because their project management during construction of our first 6 sheds was exemplary. On every occasion they have built sheds for us Santrev were able to meet critical completion date deadlines and we were able to place birds on time in every shed. During construction both management and staff were always very informative when approached with any requests for information.
My experience with Santrev has always been good. My only recommendation would be to keep up the good work.”

“In our experience, Santrev was an absolute pleasure to work with in building our most recent free range poultry shed. The Santrev Team provided flexibility when required and a genuine can do attitude that ensured a top quality end result. Santrev also provided prompt answers and follow-up support when required.”

“Santrev built two 45000 bird sheds for me in 2009. Very Happy with them. Would not hesitate to contract them to build the new farm.”

Regarding the Blanchetown Project
“Allow me first to remark on my overall impression of the development.
Having visited in mid-October 2014, whereby farm 5 was well underway with the build and farm 4 was leveled ready to build, I am compelled to pass on my delight to return and see such a magnificent result. The level of detail is impressive, the quality of the broiler houses and associated buildings is a real credit to Richard, Gary, Luke and the teams involved. Santrev can be justifiably proud of these sites.”
“The Blanchetown project is so far the biggest free-range project in the history of the company SKOV. We have installed a fully automatic system that can open and close doors (pop-holes) providing access to the free-range areas. The system primarily applies natural ventilation when the broilers occupy the free-range areas and ventilates according to the Combi-Tunnel principle when the broilers are inside the livestock house and the doors are closed. The system is state-of-art and the DOL 539 house computer controls the climate and production in the house. The well-designed, airtight profiles supplied by Santrev makes it possible for us to make an efficient ventilation system. The high-quality materials used – as an example dip galvanized steel – guarantee that the house also will be functional many years from now.”

“From a ventilation viewpoint, the challenge lies in having an open production environment, where we do not have full control of the livestock house environment. Updated with new software, DOL 539 ensures optimum climate under all conditions. The system can provide natural ventilation for a great deal of the time when the doors are open, but it is also possible to open the wall inlets and ventilate mechanically via fans in the exhaust units. When that is the case, we regulate the climate in the livestock house based on the temperature of the air as well as humidity and CO2 levels.”
SKOV A/S, Denmark
“Orland Poultry operates a contract broiler farm in South Australia growing for Ingham’s Enterprises. When we were looking ate expanding our farm we were looking for a shed builder who not only built quality shed but also one who had an understanding of the industry. With Luke, Garry, Richard and the crew from Santrev, we were supplied with shedding that far exceeded our expectations.
We found that in the initial planning stages Santrev were always willing to listen to us and accommodate us when we asked if they could supply us with a wider truss so we had more coverage over the cool pads, also because our sheds run north/south there was no problems with placing 75mm sandwich panel on the western side.
Once construction was underway there was always someone on the site who was more than willing to answer any questions we might have had and everyone to work in with the other contractors meant that there was no unnecessary downtime. The conduct of their workforce is a credit to everyone involved, with over twenty years in this industry I don’t think that I have seen a crew that was as professional in their approach to the job that theses boys were.”
“We have worked with Santrev on several projects and have found them to be a professional outfit that are used to working with tight building schedules.”
