Key details

Project Scope: New winery building & two dwellings
Client: Danbury Wine Estate
Architect: KLH Architects
Contractor: M & P Dunn Ltd

Key features

  • The proposed winery building consists of clear span steel portal frames, utilising the inherent durability and strength of steel, to provide unimpeded working space
  • Concrete trench fill and pad foundations were identified as being the most efficient foundation solution, following an assessment of the ground conditions present on site
  • The winery building features an internal steel frame designed to support precast concrete panels, creating a high thermal mass ‘box’, resulting in an environment suited to the storage of wine
  • The health and safety risks associated with deep trenches were overcome by working closely with the contractor to find the most appropriate solution. This resulted in the specification of localised reinforced concrete ground beams
  • Analysed and designed using Tekla Structures software
