KSSP Sugar Warehouse
Rayong, Thailand
The client required the warehouse to be used for the storage of unrefined bulk or bagged sugar during the season, and rolled steel coils off season. Therfore the design involved buttress walls, 10m high and  a floor slab loading of up to 20 t/sqm, with a double apex roof of  a 40m clear span.

The structural design also had to make provision for a series of 3.4m wide sub-floor tunnels to accommodate the future out-take conveyor system leading to a hopper weigh-scale shed. Sugar intake is also by conveyor from a tilter shed, with elevating platforms to discharge the sugar from delivery trucks.
We designed the main reinforced concrete retaining walls/tunnels and the steel-frame structures of the warehouse, tilter shed and hopper shed together with the surrounding pavement and drainage works. After assisting with the tender process we supervised construction.
