Agricultural Stock Building, Morpeth

One of our clients requested that we undertake to build a new stock building upon a farm he owns on the outskirts of Morpeth.

As part of the development, we designed the building in line with our clients specification and we applied and gained planning permission from Northumberland County Council. Once approved, we  moved quickly into the development by setting up the site with Welfare, and Health and Safety provisions. The site was then cleared, prepared, and the exact location of the building was marked out by our surveyor.  A trained excavator driver dug pad foundations in readiness for concrete and holding down bolt assemblies.  

During this time, our fabrication team in Amble cut, welded and painted the steel for the building and had it delivered to site for our erection squad.  The sheeted gates, also made by us, were treated to a coating of hot dip galvanizing and then fitted.

Once the structural steel was erected and tested for line and level, concrete panels were installed. Followed by, purlins which when installed allow our cladding team to fit fibre cement roofing sheets and spaced timber boarding to the elevations. PVC guttering has been fitted to the eaves taking rain water away from the building.

The ground within has been compacted and dusted to give a workable surface for the farmer.
