About the Building

I want to convert an existing farm building into a drying and storage facility. What factors need I consider when planning a drive-on-floor installation?


  1. The type of crops that are to be stored.
  2. Headroom for tipping trailers.
  3. Whether the building structure is suitable for the side loads transmitted by the stored crop or whether you need internal thrust walls.
  4. Vehicular and pedestrian access into the building.
  5. The availability of the electrical power supply.
  6. If you are currently using the building as a store, where you will store the equipment when you have completed the conversion.
  7. Whether you have a choice of locating the main air duct centrally or down one side of the building. 
  8. Where you intend to site the fans – internal or external fan house
  9. Whether your existing concrete floor is suitable to accept a drive-on floor.
  10. How you will make the building vermin and bird proof. 

I am planning to erect a new building on my site and then install a drive-on-floor drying and storage facility; can I get help with the planning?
