What we do
Outstanding Concrete Work
This has kept the McErlean’s coming back to Roaches Concrete Products for three generations.
“Their workmanship speaks for itself, when people look at the shed they ask who did the concrete work”
Poplar Partnership – John & Karen McErlean & Peter McErlean
Roaches built their first 36 aside herringbone for the Whitelocks in 1996. They have since gone on to build several rotary sheds and have just recently completed a new shed for George Whitelock, Braeden’s son.
“I think all the cowsheds he has built have a good reputation, he has good workmanship and does a great job”

Clever and Accommodating Design
Our first response was being impressed with his quality of builds on comparison on what we had seen elsewhere.
David gave precise quotes and helped with plans and was always accommodating with any changes over this planning and design process. Our build was not just an “out of the box build” and RCP got in behind our concept to accommodate what we were looking for.
Non Standard Build
There was a lot of attention to detail in this farm dairy design, ie functionality and creating a pleasant work environment for staff and good stock flow. RCP responded to all of those requests and willingly accepted my design as this was not just a standard build.
Multiple Products for the Farm
Our business has used Roaches Concrete Products for over twenty years from the development of our first herringbone dairy shed, feed pad, silage bunkers and recently a new 54 bale rotary dairy shed.
Their total involvement in the project during the drafting, consenting and permitting process was always at a highly professional level. Once we moved on to specification, tendering and pricing the documentation was always accurate and easy to understand.
We approached David as he had built two other barns locally. He was experienced in concrete work and knew a lot of things we knew nothing about, ie the exact spacing for cow cross overs to give them enough room, the right amount of head room between sleeping bays, step up to the beds at exactly the right height, fall on the bed so they stay dry, fall on the whole barn so no puddles, excellent air flow with the rounded roof, scrapers to take away effluent to a bunker also designed by David, a bridge to enable tractor turnaround while feeding out. We could go on but we only need to look at how happy our cows are.
Denis and Linda Morgan
We are very happy with the result of the build and project. I was impressed with the team on the building site and communication throughout. The company are practical with design and are experienced builders in this sector who pride themselves on the final product.
