Our expertise in the industrial sector is extensive, including structural design for warehouses, industrial condominium units, manufacturing plants, food processing facilities, modular structure facilities and silos. We also design equipment for the industrial sector, including cranes, pipe racks, platforms and foundations for pre-engineered steel buildings.
This wood framed building contains a two-storey office portion, chemical storage facility, seed storage area and a shop area with a mezzanine. The building utilizes a majority of wood framing with some steel components throughout and the chemical storage portion was designed to AWSA standards. This building was completed and occupied in Mid 2017.
The 6-storey tower needed to be constructed within a high explosive area and therefore required extreme safety and construction precautions with no hot work allowed on site. To compound the difficulties, the plant had a short shutdown period when most of the construction had to take place. The tower is constructed from conventional steel and is supported on a concrete grade beam and screw pile foundation. The high hazard use of the building required explosion panels to be constructed within the exterior walls to relieve pressure in the unlikely event of an explosion.
The Pick Centre expansion to the Frito-Lay facility in Lethbridge is constructed from a 100’ tall automated racking system and is supported on a concrete raft slab and a lower conventional steel shipping and receiving facility. The building is clad with steel insulated panels.
The manufacturing facility and warehouse was constructed with a pre-engineered steel building. The office is a single-storey insulated concrete form building that utilizes the ICF blocks that are manufactured within the completed facility. BCB provided full-scope engineering and architectural services for both the initial building in 2013 and the expansion in 2017.
The multi-storey seed cleaning facility and conditioner were constructed within the confines of two existing buildings during operation of the facility. Steel screw piles with concrete pile caps were used to support the structures because of the tight space constraints within the existing buildings.
