    New Grain Shed

    Hey So im away to build a new grain store on the farm. Was looking at about 48m x 24m and about 6m high at the eaves. Potentially want to do something with a grain drier/drying floor using biomass but that's for the future. Does anyone have any bits of advice or things to avoid?

    Concrete walling thickness

    We will be putting up a grain store with 4m high concrete panels to hold about 1800t of grain. Just curious on people's views on the best thickness of concrete panels. Currently have assumed 150mm thick panels, but curious whether going to 180mm or thicker offers any advantages? Any views...

    I want to put a weighbridge in, it will be used for weighing crops as they come in on tractor and trailer, and also HGV's. I am looking at pit mounted as we are doing some yard alterations, so putting a pit in at the same time wouldn't be much extra work, or is surface mounted better. Also...
