HOW DID WE HELP?
Installation was completed in October 2006 and the building is still in place to date. A yearly checkup of a few crucial points helps ensuring that the structural integrity of the building is maintained: ground anchors, bracing wires and bars, tensioning of all fabric parts. The building has stood the test of time very well indeed!
The building was later increased in size as the flexible Aluflex system will allow to do: four extension bays were installed in 2013 to make the building 40 metres long.
In addition, an internal partitioning wall was installed in 2015 – the flexibility of the Aluflex system will allow this too - to separate the storage area from a newly created workshop area.
In 2014 also the Prysmian site in Eastleigh required a similar building for storage purposes, albeit with a slightly upgraded specification.
The final specification of the building was 15 metres wide x 30 metres long with a side height of 5 metres. Single skin steel clad walls, an anti-condensation double skin fabric roof were supplied, together with 2 No. electrical roller shutter doors and 2 No. personnel access doors. Basic 100 lux lighting was also added as well as a cement bund along the ground to make the building fully watertight.
On this instance an existing concrete slab which had to be slightly increased in size allowed to bolt the building onto a perfectly level and even surface.
Installation was completed within a few days in January 2015.
