C Truk Boats

Scott Jameson, director of sales at Spaciotempo, said: “We are extremely proud of our reputation when it comes to the quality and reliability of our off-the-shelf products, but we enjoy taking on challenges when we are asked to. The C Truk Boats building is a case in point. Not only did our design team have to take into account the exposed nature of the site, they had to work to accommodate the vast dimensions of the door, which itself had to be bespoke-built. C Truk Boats are a young company that are going places. We are very pleased to have been able to provide a building that will benefit them as they continue to grow.”

Case Study

Its products are designed to transport workers who are heading out into the high seas, but Essex-based C Truk Boats was in need of a solution back on dry land when it contacted Spaciotempo earlier this year.

The firm manufactures composite boats which are used as support vessels and increasingly to transport maintenance staff out to Britain’s growing number of offshore wind farms.

At the time of its enquiry, C Truk boats had landed a new order and was just weeks away from launching a new craft. It was therefore in need of a new building which would allow it to increase production with a minimum of delay.

So far, so good, but it soon became apparent that the job would require all of Spaciotempo’s knowledge and expertise, because not only is C Truk Boats based in an exposed, breezy seaside location at Brightlingsea Harbour, its products are many metres wide – and high.

At the same time, its site would only support a building around 15m wide, meaning that it was looking for a structure with an average-sized frontage but with an enormous door.

The solution lay in a 600 sq m structure from Spaciotempo’s Neivalu range, which is build to wind loading BS6399 Part 2 standards, ensuring that it would be more than able to withstand the coastal conditions.

At the front, it made space for an almighty 10m wide door, one of the largest doors it has ever fitted in one of its buildings and one which was so wide that the gable end measured just 2.5m on either side. This required that the design of the steel work at the gable end had to be specially altered, including the addition of extra portal beams.

The door was also purpose-built and, to prevent it buckling and bending in the coastal wind, features a wind bar which swings from horizontal when the door is raised to vertical – with a bolt fitting into a locator hole drilled into the floor – when the door is fully lowered.

The result is a fully relocatable building that can be used to store large craft without any compromise on structural integrity or performance.
