Miracle Span Salt Store Building for Stockton on Tees Council

Local Authority Salt Store

Supply & Erection of Salt Store for Stockton Borough Council.

The Project

In February 2008 Miracle Span were contacted by Stockton Borough Council’s Highways Department as they were looking for a steel building to use as a store for their salt and grit for winter road treatment.

Miracle Span forwarded a detailed quotation for a steel building 18.3m (60ft) wide x 7.6m (25ft) high x 40m (131ft) in length.

In May 2008 Stockton Borough Council placed an order for the supply and erection of a Miracle Span steel building subject to planning approval. Miracle Span supplied the Council with a set of drawings and full design calculations for their planning application.

Miracle Span’s NEBOSH qualified contracts manager conducted a visit to the site of the proposed building to discuss the project and health & safety requirements with the Council’s project management.

Stockton Borough Council advised Miracle Span in early June that they had received planning permission and clearance from Network Rail to proceed with the project as the proposed building was close to the boundary with the railway.

The Result

Miracle Span commenced erection of the building in early July and the contract was completed in 25 days.

Stockton Borough Council are delighted with their salt store and rated Miracle Span 10/10 across the board for quality of product, quality of service, completion of contract to agreed cost & time and safety.
