HM Carriers & Stanton Grove

HM Carriers & Stanton Grove

Loading bay solutions designed to stand extreme weather conditions have been installed at MH Carriers site on the coast of Aberdeen and at Stanton Grove’s West Langton Terminal at Bootle, on the Liverpool Freeport.

Case Study

About this job
Loading bay solutions designed to stand extreme weather conditions have been installed at MH Carriers site on the coast of Aberdeen and at Stanton Grove’s West Langton Terminal at Bootle, on the Liverpool Freeport.

Requirement
Both companies needed a large structure to cover the loading bay that could withstand the elements of the coastal locations such as strong winds and rain. It wasn’t only the weather that would challenge the design and build of Stanton Grove’s solution, as it is located on a pier, which created its own difficulties in its construction.

Building

A 750 square metre canopy covers the loading bay at MH Carriers, which is constructed in the same way a normal temporary building would be built but is completed without side-walls. Stanton Grove’s canopy at the Port of Liverpool, installed on a pier, is used for loading containers.

Challenges
Site specific calculations and surveys were undertaken as well as tests on withstanding the strong winds to ensure that the location of the canopy and the structure itself could cope with the elements. It was paramount that the canopy was structurally sound and safe but it also had to cope with the long term effects of the weather conditions. For Stanton Grove the other challenge was the installation on the pier and once again the site surveys and planning was integral to delivering the solution on time and on budget.
