AGRI ESTATE INGRAINS STEEL PROTECTION AT ITS FARM

A leading engineering company has called upon the services of a steel protection company as part of a large project which saw it fabricate storage facilities in Norfolk.
Norwich-based AC Bacon Engineering, which specialises in fabricating buildings for the agriculture industry, has teamed up with long-standing suppliers Worksop Galvanizing, part of Wedge Group Galvanizing, to process steel used to create two large grain stores for South Pickenham Estates in Norfolk.
“We have worked alongside the team at Worksop Galvanizing on many of our projects,” Andrew Willimott, Buyer at AC Bacon, explained. “Our most recent work weighed over 700 tonnes in total with steel used to fabricate a variety of structures including grain stores, which play a pivotal role in farming operations. It’s important our buildings are fabricated and galvanized to a high quality, not only protect the structure itself, but also the products stored inside.”
“The farming environment can be a particularly challenging one, so galvanizing our steel ensures our buildings last a lifetime with no need for maintenance or servicing, which can be quite costly taking into account the size of the grain stores and the labour and resources it would require. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Worksop Galvanizing on similar projects in the months and years to come.”
South Pickenham Estates, which is home to a 5,802 acre farm and vineyard, plus sporting, catering and accommodation, specified galvanizing as a finish for AC Bacon’s steel buildings due to the quality and long-term protection that it provides.
Paul Robinson, Commercial Manager at Worksop Galvanizing, explained: “The team here at Worksop Galvanizing has worked with AC Bacon across a variety of projects for over 10 years and we’re pleased to have played a part in this large-scale job for South Pickenham Estates.”

ENERGY FROM WASTE CENTRE CALLS UPON TWO LEADING COMPANIES

A leading galvanizing company is celebrating after its services were called upon by long-standing customers for a large sustainable project aimed at reducing Buckinghamshire’s environmental impact.
Caunton Engineering Ltd called upon the team at Worksop Galvanizing – part of Wedge Group Galvanizing – to process over 2,000 tonnes of structural steelwork used as part of a new Energy from Waste (EfW) facility in Aylesbury.

The project was developed through a partnership between Buckinghamshire County Council and FCC Environment – formerly the Waste Recycling Group – which is set to save the council approximately £150million during the course of the 30 year contract. With a capacity to treat 300,000 tonnes of waste each year, the facility will help to reduce the dependence on landfill use, and will generate 22mW of electricity – enough to power 36,000 homes.
Allan Younger, Sales Director at Caunton Engineering Ltd, explained: “We were chosen to supply over 2,000 tonnes of galvanized steel used to house the various processes and equipment in the Tipping Hall, Bunker Hall, Boiler Hall, Flue Gas Treatment Area, as well as office accommodation, workshops and air conditioning units, with the highest of the structures measuring at 52m high.
“Galvanizing was the preferred method of corrosion resistance due to its ability to withstand challenging environments such as this and offer long-term durability against the elements. Our long-standing suppliers, Worksop Galvanizing, processed our steel for us and we had to work extremely closely with them to ensure that product completion and delivery was prompt and maintained within the wider project timeline.”
Zurich-based Hitachi Zosen Inova (HZI) was principal contractor which employed Sir Robert McAlpine to deliver the Civil Works of the project. Careful coordination was the key to the success of the large-scale project with various suppliers and contractors working to tight deadlines throughout the build phase.

Paul Robinson, Commercial Manager at Worksop Galvanizing, added: “This project was exciting to be part of due to environmental benefits the facility will bring to Buckinghamshire, and we hope to work on many more sustainable developments with Caunton Engineering in the future.”

PROTECTION PLAYS ITS PART IN PARK TRANSFORMATION

A leading galvanizing firm has teamed up with a blacksmith specialist to protect a range of sculptures as part of a major regeneration project in the north east.



Humber Galvanizing, part of Wedge Group Galvanizing, worked with Whitby-based Godbold Blacksmiths Ltd to provide its specialist hot dip galvanizing treatment to 1.5tonnes of steel used to produce a series of eye-catching sculptures to mark Middlesbrough’s maritime and ship building heritage, which have been installed at Chertsey Green in Pallister Park.



The project, which was commissioned by Groundwork North East and Cumbria and designed by sculpture artist, Andrew Mckeown, saw the companies work in collaboration to design, fabricate, and protect the sculptures which have been installed across an area spanning 100m2.



Liz Allen, Senior Landscape Architect at Groundwork North East and Cumbria, added: “The regeneration of Pallister Park has been a very exciting project and the feedback we’ve already received from the local residents has been hugely positive.”



The project took six weeks to complete, with Godbold Blacksmiths Ltd creating the sculptures and a memorial to recognise Middlesbrough’s pioneering maritime history, with Andrew Mckeown leading on the design with help from students at Corpus Christi Catholic Primary School. The sculptures also recognise Middlesbrough’s connection to Captain Cook and his explorations, as well as the thousands of ships which were built on the Tees by local employees, many of which lived in Pallister Park, near the river and at Cargo Fleet – Middlesbrough’s first and original port.



James Godbold of Godbold Blacksmiths Ltd, added: “As the sculptures are permanently situated outdoors and open to the elements, galvanizing was an essential choice of protection against weathering and rust, and will ensure they’ll continue to look welcoming in years to come.”
