Haulaway Skip Hire based in East Sussex, required a new waste facility constructing. However, the new industrial building was to be built in a rural location and the planning permission placed conditions on the development that restricted the noise that was to be generated. Haulaway Skip Hire required a steelwork contractor with planning and acoustic expertise to manage the entire process.
With Robinson being Haulaway Skip Hire’s preferred contractor, planning began.
Working closely with the Acoustic Consultant, Robinson ensured every detail worked from a performance and installation perspective.
With sound reduction being a key objective, Robinson made recommendations on materials and techniques, these included Euroclad Elite – a specialist twin-skin sound-reducing cladding system that out performs composite cladding, and the application of bespoke sound-reducing detail to some of the flashing and door surrounds. With these materials, the entire building envelope would reduce noise by approximately 45dB.
To keep Haulaway Skip Hire’s expensive machinery protected from the weather and theft whilst construction progressed, the new building of size 30m x 33m was erected over the top of the existing baler shed, a unique approach as the bay sizes weren’t uniform, measuring 4.5m, 6m and 9m. The building was designed, fabricated and erected within a rapid turnaround time to meet Haulaway Skip Hire’s ongoing business needs.
“Robinsons worked extremely hard to ensure the building we required would work for our business. Great attention was paid to the layout of the building ensuring the interface of doors, machinery and personnel access.”
