Client, Heat Treat 2000, gained planning approval for the expansion of their existing heat treating business. This particular building is designed for the installation of an automated heat treatment line. JSR Construction was contracted to supply and build the new factory building on a brownfield site, adjacent to Heat Treat 2000’s existing factory.
A major project that lasted over nine months, JSR utilised a range of capabilities to deliver the industrial building.
Following the results of ground investigation, piling works were deemed necessary to ensure the safe stability of the structure’s foundations. 100 concrete piles, 12m by 250mm diameter pre-cast concrete piles were driven into the ground to a set.
The ring beam foundations were then excavated, and 30 tonnes of steel cages were fabricated to reinforce the foundations and link the ring beam to the pile caps. 265m3 of concrete was then pumped in to cast the ring beam.
This process was then followed by the casting of the oversight. A 250mm slab with two layers of A393 reinforcement fabric was laid and we began laying the concrete. 380m3 of concrete was laid at 250mm deep in two passes, with a power-float finish to provide a hard-wearing surface, suitable for industrial machinery.
Once the concreting was complete, the steel building was erected, the structure being 60m long, 25.5m wide and 9m high. The cladding works then commenced to enclose the building. Due to the boundary wall building regulations and the restricted working area available, the 250mm fire resistant composite panels were required to be craned in.
The supply and build of the Heat Treat 2000’s new industrial building was a project that required JSR Construction to use a range of services and expertise to complete the project over a nine-month period. The project showcased that JSR has the ability to deliver large scale contracts over an extended period of time, further reinforcing the company's versatility in the construction industry.
