Challenges and solutions
We designed and value-engineered the building to comply with the required composting loads. Engineering for the building needed to consider the concrete dado panel wall and withstand the weight of compost material.
The shed needed to have adequate access to the outdoors to allow large machinery to load and unload composting material and pass through the building easily.
“They were very professional in the pre-construction and planning phase which was vital given the site hard stand is constructed with a 2-degree slope and a challenging subsurface i.e. lots of rock! The site is also very exposed so during the actual assembly and elevation of the structure it was good to have such an experienced team working on the job. It was amazing watching it go up as one complete structure with multiple cranes used – an impressive display of teamwork and coordination!”
