This large warehouse for the company Amrod, suppliers of corporate gifts, had an extremely short program. From date of order the steelwork contractors had 13 weeks to fabricate and erect 440 tons of steel. This required them erect approximately 10 tons of steel per day to be able to meet the program. The team faced many challenges in making this program work, like the tilt up walls, earth works and rain delays as well as the interface of many other trades. Ferro Eleganza are very proud to say that this was achieved and quality assurance never went by the wayside.
The structural framing includes
- Lattice roof structure consisting of girders and trusses.
- Metsec purlins.
- Steel columns sitting on concrete columns.
- Metsec Cladding rails bolted to outside of steel and concrete columns.
From a cladding perspective – various colours and plain levels were utilised giving the outside of the warehouse an aesthetic appeal. Klip-Tite sheets were rolled on site, as they were too long to transport.
The client was very satisfied with the project and also handed over on time. It is a truly beautiful warehouse that is well visible to all passing the Buccleuch interchange.
