Challenges and solutions

Our estimating and design team worked together to achieve the most economical sized shed to hold 6500m3 of grain. We designed heavier wall framing to allow grain to pile up against the walls. This element of the project required specific engineering to ensure the shed would take the load of tons per cubic meters of grain and potential extra weight from loading equipment.
