Refurbishment of Animal Feed Milling Plant


Working with a specialist supplier, LJF Engineering, we have assisted in the design and detailing of specialist steelwork required to support a new animal feed milling plant to the installed at Carrs Billington in Kingstown Industrial Estate, Carlisle.

The feed mill replaces an ageing system which was taken out of operation in late June 2019 allowing the installation of the new plant.

Intolerances in the historic steelwork, ad hoc alterations and poor workmanship on the historic fabric of the plant required some flexibility in the design and detailing of supporting steelwork alongside simplifying connections across members to ensure ease of erection.  As the plant was operational at the time of survey, care was undertaken to ensure that any new modifications or alterations did not effect existing services and systems which were to remain after the installation.
