the project.

We were asked by Toro Shelters 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 to contain the grit salt. However, the main contractor - Morgan Sindall, was keen to find a cheaper method of construction.

Together with the structural engineers JPG and Toro Shelters, we came up with a new design, using a lightweight galvanised steel structure covered with a tensioned membrane and precast retaining walls. The floor would be changed to a fibre-reinforced slab.

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.

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

customer satisfaction.

Together, the pro-active work of JP Concrete, Toro Shelters, Modular Cubed and JPG has resulted in a smooth-running and cost-effective job that looks very good indeed. From start to finish, everything has gone well, with a great turnaround from an innovative team who quickly understood our deadline and what we needed to achieve.
