Bulk Storage Facility
Design and construction of a new 5,000m2 bulk storage facility to retain fertiliser materials. This included over 2,000m3 of concrete in the floor and 4m high, 170mm thick concrete precast retaining walls. Our design turned a non-viable project into a cost effective solution for our client. The building at its highest point was 15m to allow fully laden semi-trailers to end tip into the facility and drive out of 10.5m high roller shutter doors. With sea bound deliveries ordered before the build commenced, QDC was under pressure from the outset to complete the project to extremely tight timelines. We completed the work in 14 weeks – a week ahead of schedule.
