Pye Group
Long Lane Farms Bunkerstore

This 180m² agricultural bunker was designed to suit a specific storage function for Pye Group. Their requirements were met with a 10.5m high front for clearance of trucks tipping and sliding doors elevated 3m above the slab at the back of the bunker for a piler to distribute carrots or fertiliser. A 3m high partition wall separates two bays to allow for storage of different farm produce. The 175mm thick panels were designed for strength and durability when moving farm produce in and out of the bunker. Panel sizes were well considered to ensure a cost-effective solution for the supply and transport of the precast. Consideration is taken in all of our projects right down to the small details such as ensuring minimal collection of dust and fertiliser in the bottom sliding door track.

"We have used Thompson Engineering and Construction for numerous farm sheds, buildings and recently to project manage and build our main offices. The entire team at Thompson are very professional from management right down to on-site staff. They are efficient, tidy and projects are always completed on time. The farm buildings we have had constructed by them are built to a very high standard and we are really pleased with the workmanship. Our new office building is absolutely fantastic. It is modern, light and spacious. The Thompson Engineering and Construction team did a complete job from drawing up the plans to arranging a complete fit-out so it was ready for us to move in. All of their staff have a good understanding of our needs and are able to deliver a product that exceeds all expectations.”
