GA Pet Foods, Bretherton (Lancashire) – United Kingdom



GA Pets food were looking to expand their manufacturing capability by building a new 13,000 m² facility on the flood plain of the River Douglas. With the site liable to flooding from the river, site levels had to be raised by up to 2.0 m to avoid the new facility being disrupted by future flooding. Vibro Menard were approached to look at an alternative to the proposed fully suspended floor slab supported on CFA pile. Vibro Menard installed 320 mm diameter Controlled Modulus Columns (CMC’s) on a 2.0m x 2.0m grid to provide support to the upfill and also the slab dead and live loads.
