In the difficult financial climate that we as South Africans find ourselves, this is a brilliant example of how steel can innovatively be used to assist the growth of a company while keeping the costs much lower than expected.
Imagine a redundant feed plant standing in Pretoria West on Epol Dog Foods Plant. They have this 80t Tower Feed Mill Building which is no longer in use. On the other hand, you have Wisium SA an Animal Nutrition company who needs to build a state of the art new plant to accommodate their growth. Can you imagine buying a building in Pretoria West and bringing it to Brits? Well with Steel this was made possible!
This building needed to be modified in just a few places and also extended to accommodate the new feedmill design. Tekla Structures was the perfect tool to be able to do this detailing. Importing the existing building and adding the new extensions enabled minimum modifications to selected items of the building. Ready to receive the newly build steelwork from the factory.
Once the building was completely erected together with the additional extensions the entire building was given a final coat of paint. Giving the client a brand new steel structure.
The building was finally clad with new sheeting and the client boasted a beautiful new state of the art Feed Mill.
A very happy client celebrated this new plant with his industry in a grand opening.
Ferro Eleganza is privileged and proud to have been part of this innovative use of steel!
