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.
North Hill Farms Ltd, part of the Wilton Estate, is located between the valleys of the Nadder and Wyle Rivers. Because of recent investment, the landscape near to Grovely Wood now boasts a new 2,500 tonne capacity grain store at the Folly Farm site.
The new storage facility has an olive green clad building with a floor area of 48 x 28m, including a central dividing wall with two hardwood drying floor areas on one side and a large storage area for dry grain on the other.
Access to the store is via four tall roller shutter doors at the front and via the fan housing at the rear. This also provides the opportunity to walk along the top of the air duct and drying floor arrangement to view the stored materials and the associated stirrer unit in operation.
Cobham Farms are situated close to Salisbury in Wiltshire and are now reaping the benefit of their latest investment in a new 2500 tonne capacity grain store set back into the excavated hillside location at the end of the approach road.
Following completion of the groundworks to prepare the levels, the olive green clad, steel framed building has now been erected complete with an internal combination timber drying floor covering 50 percent of the available storage area.
The building has a specially designed elevated fan house at the rear to feed the lower level air duct and associated drying floor whilst to the front face of the store there are four tall green coloured roller shutter doors acting as the main entrance doorways for the facilities operation.
