RIDBA – Buckminster
The need for larger storage facilities (5000 tonnes and upwards) is leading to a good deal of interest in on floor storage with deeper depths of grain stored to reduce floor area but with high capacity intake and conveying equipment and large capacity continuous flow driers, to provide a simple storage and drying system.
Bennett and Co have completed for harvest 2018 a major investment in grain storage for Buckminster Farms Ltd. Following a complete review of their grain storage facilities and requirements, Perry of Oakley and Bennett and Co were asked to provide a solution. (Link to bit on website)
Friday 15th March Mike attended the RIDBA awards dinner (Rural and Industrial Design and Building Association) where this new grain storage facility for Buckminster Farms Ltd was one of the finalists.
The building was entered by RIDBA member A C Bacon Engineering who manufactured and erected the building for the way in which it was incorporated into the landscape and for the engineering detail to meet the functional requirements of the building.
