Design and Build

Every site, every plant and every client's requirements are different, which is why we treat each project as bespoke, with specific design and build services applied to every client's exact and individual requirements. BK Grain has the experience and in-house capabilities to provide a complete project management service, from initial design through to construction and commissioning.

With a busy farm to run, it is important for a farmer to be able to invest in a new grain store, drying equipment or other facilities, knowing that he can leave the whole project in the capable hands of a company that can provide a comprehensive service and deliver the best solution on time and on budget.

With our strong in-house team, close links to steel frame suppliers and 35 years’ experience in the grain storage and handling industry, we are well-placed to provide a fully self-sufficient service in all areas, from initial consultancy and advice to full design, build and aftercare, including ongoing service and maintenance with 24/7 emergency breakdown response.

At the beginning of a project. a member of our planning and design team with discuss your individual needs, such as increased storage or more efficient grain handling and drying and will propose the most efficient and cost-effective solution for your requirements. We will then produce full plans in line with latest regulations and standards, liaise with the local council, commission and project manage the building through to completion – a full end to end service.

BK handles everything from advising our customers on the best way to meet their needs through to obtaining planning permission, carrying out the building work and installing, commissioning and maintaining the system. One of our main advantages over our competitors is that we employ our own large team of experienced designers, electricians, fabricators and engineers so that everything is controlled in-house, from the initial site visit and design through to completion and commissioning. Whilst there is always a requirement to use trusted sub-contractors to complete some of the building work, every job is project managed by BK to our own exacting standards. All buildings are erected to EN1090 and as such as CE marked. We are a member of BM TRADA which is our notified body.

Simon Bird, Director

We spend a lot of time talking to our customers at the beginning of a project to understand their needs, then we design the operation from scratch so that we can build the facility around the specific requirements of the store operator. We then project manage the whole process from start to finish, ensuring that all the various trades and contractors work together with our in-house team to ensure the project is finished on time.
