EQUESTRIAN PROPERTY PLANNING & DESIGN

Sustainable Stables provides experienced, affordable equestrian facility master planning and design services. Our planning and design services are typically separated into four phases (see below). Some projects go through all four of these phases, while others may need only one or two. We are more than happy to customize our services and process to meet the specific needs of your project.

PHASE 1: INFORMATION GATHERING

We start by spending 6 to 10 hours of time (on average) gathering key information about your equestrian property, along with learning more about your personal vision for the site.

PHASE 2: MASTER SITE LAYOUT DEVELOPMENT

In this phase, we develop a master site layout plan showing the proposed location and footprint of the various equestrian-related site improvements, often including the barn, arena, pastures & paddocks, dry lots/sacrifice areas and hay/equipment storage areas. We typically include initial, basic 3D-models of the improvements as part of this phase.

PHASE 3: 3D DESIGN PHASE

For clients wanting more detailed design assistance, we build upon the master site plan developed in Phase 2 by rendering the barn, arena and other equestrian site improvements in  fully-custom, detailed 3D. We can also develop materials estimates (often called a material takeoff sheets) upon request to enable you to get an accurate quote(s) for construction.

PHASE 4: ASSISTANCE WITH MATERIALS & SUPPLIES PROCUREMENT

Once we have worked with you to develop a plan, we are happy to assist you and your builder with procuring the necessary supplies and equipment to bring the plan to life. We have worked with most of the major barn supply companies over the years, and can therefore help you procure everything from stalls, to flooring, to feeders and waterers, to footing materials from your local quarry.
