Aggregate SIlos and Conveyor Support
This project entailed the design and construction of eight silos and a conveyor support structure.
Working closely with the client, the decision was made to use ‘off-the-shelf’ silos and adapt them to the unique project needs. In this instance, this approach provided a more cost-effective option than a bespoke design. One benefit of using silos, instead of the traditional method of creating stockpiles, is that it enables the user to easily blend different mixes of aggregates.
The project required the conveyor to pass underneath the silos, which called for clever a design where they were built on plinth walls. This presented major access issues for construction team which were overcome with careful planning and programming.
