Wallenstein Feed Mill & Warehouse

Wallenstein, ON

This project involved a major upgrade to the production capacity of the existing facility located in Wallenstein. Our scope as the prime consultant and engineer of record included the architectural and structural design of the new mill including the design of the bin towers, receiving and loadout bays, warehousing and production spaces.

The warehouse was framed using a pre-engineered steel clear span structure which was supported by the main mill framing. Heavy structural steel framing was required to support the high axial and lateral loading exerted by the bin and penthouse structure. Coordination of processing equipment and structural framing was a challenging aspect to this project which required close collaboration with the Camar Mill Systems.
