Whites Concrete’s panels provide all the detail at pet food facility

The pet food facility is due to be completed in early 2019

With over 1,900 individually detailed pre-cast concrete panels supplied to date, Whites Concrete has completed the 40th phase of its supply to GA Pet Food Partners in Lancashire – a dry pet food manufacturing facility.

The 10-year, £34 million expansion of the GA site has so far seen Whites Concrete supply almost 4,500m2 of its Baywall product (mainly 115mm thickness) alone.

This pre-stressed concrete retaining wall system, which can be constructed to span vertically or horizontally, is reportedly set to provide a dense, impermeable and durable finish for new GA buildings. In order to meet very specific needs, concrete panels have required numerous cut-outs for services such as pipe entry and notches for duct intrusions and doors. Whites Concrete’s Baywall is the company’s pre-stressed flat-panel walling system, utilised with either steel or precast concrete posts.

Due for completion in early 2019, the upgraded GA Pet Food Partners’ facility has also required Whites Concrete’s pre-cast Groundwall panels for concrete tanks. These large L-shaped retaining walls can withstand higher loads from factors such as heavy plant and large vehicles.
