Rural Case Study – Pre-formed concrete maize bunker in Te Awamutu
Durk DeBoer – Te Awamutu
To create a dry and rodent-free maize bunker.
The maize bunker was an existing floor with dirt banks. We had to pre-form and pour tilt slab panels on site.
They were then lifted into position after a curing period of 10 days, and concreted into place. The walls were then backfilled behind with pit sand.
Rural Case Study – External feed troughs around existing concrete pad
Doug and Penny Storey – Te Awamutu
The brief for this job was to build external feed troughs around an existing feed pad, which could be flood washed easily.
Starters were drilled into the existing concrete and blocks were laid. Concrete was formed and shaped on the inside of the troughs with a fall from one end to the other.
Doug now can drive around the external of the feed pad, filling the troughs with his mixer wagon.
Rural Case Study – 3-bay Goldpine shed
Andrew and Robyn Flay – Te Awamutu
The brief for this job was to build an implement shed / calving barn (ie, one that was multi-purpose)
The site was cleared and levelled. Holes were drilled and inspected. Two weeks later the council did the final inspection and signed off the project.
With its height the shed has many different uses, and is very universal.
