We undertook the site management, piling, foundations, staircase, hand railing and roofing works on the site, all the way from design to delivery. The works included both innovative slip forming work and traditional civil engineering work to create a facility that is both innovative, and fit for purpose. Slipform Engineering constructed a slip formed Silo body with 4500m3 of storage and a sloping floor with clearance to the underside of 7150 mm, the associated supporting walls, columns and piled foundations, provision for an 18m x 3m weighbridge, access for single direction HGV passing through the silo, a steel access stair to the roof providing access to the silo interior above the silo floor, and a stair providing support for the cement blow pipes.
