Rock salt storage building

Rock salt storage building

Toro Shelters asked us to help price for a new 5,000T salt barn in Bedfordshire. We would take care of the design & construction of the reinforced concrete foundations and floor and the precast retaining walls.

The original design was for a traditional steel-framed building with internal retaining walls containing grit salt. However, the main contractor – Morgan Sindall, was keen to find a cheaper method of construction.

The project was delivered on time and within budget to the delight of the council and main contractor – Morgan Sindall.

The key to us winning this project was our ability to value-engineer the design and modifying the floor design for storing a highly corrosive material.

We take site safety seriously and were chuffed to receive Morgan Sindall’s health & safety award for the month of December.
