T H WHITE Projects was commissioned during 2015 by the Forest of Bere Estate in Hampshire to review its existing onsite facilities, with a view to replacing them with a modern day, fully operational arrangement suitable to the estate’s functionality.
With the new design and layout agreed and planning approved, the development proceeded with two parallel sets of building structures. The main one was the new grain store solution, capable of holding 3,000 tonnes of combinable crops within four 750-tonne bunkers.
The 60m x 25m structure has a central dividing wall, with two bunkers on either side. It has the ability to dry the grain via two sets of hardwood floors, fed by central air ducts and a pair of fan housings to the rear of the building.
The juniper green clad grain store is one of several new farm machinery and operating buildings, constructed as part of the project, with the grain store being complemented by an independent control room/office and weighbridge.
Benefit of Investment
Increased available crop storage
Improved drying and segregation options
Quality management of stored material
Modern storage and farm machinery facility
Business efficiency and operational gains
The Forest of Bere Estate barn and drying buildings were beyond their sell by date. So, we commissioned T H White to build a new unit that included a 3,000-tonne capacity barn with stirrers and fan driers, a new workshop unit with weighbridge, and the resurfacing of an old dairy yard. This was a major development for us, and T H White Projects as main contractor delivered on time, and to budget. Contract management was helpful and accommodating, and the level of commitment from the managing team was excellent. I would recommend TH White without hesitation.

I am very proud of our achievements at The Forest of Bere. It presented us with some interesting challenges to overcome during the project programme and needless to say that the resultant grain store and associated buildings look very much part of the estate.
David Huband, Project Engineer
Achieving the customer’s goal of a new grain store and machinery buildings with a future-proof approach has been gained by carefully listening and understanding the client’s aspirations and then using our depth of knowledge and experience to design and construct his vision to become a reality.
