Forterra Desford Brickworks Facility

SECTOR: Industrial
SECTOR: Structural Engineering

Project Summary

JPP Consulting

JPP was in charge of delivering the civil and structural engineering design of the new Desford Brickworks for Forterra which, when operational, is due to become the largest brickworks in Europe. Our team provided engineering and consulting advice to Forterra as they progressed the multi-million-pound state of the art plant to be integrated into this new operation, where coordination and clear communication lines were key.  JPP were involved from the very concept of the scheme assisting with potential site layouts and advising on key engineering matters such as the complex mix of ground conditions and how to phase a staged demolition and new build construction on the site, to maximise production continuity. Works included interfacing with large site lagoons, construction of clay preparation buildings, conveyors, 30m tall chimney stacks, scrubbers, extensive external storage yards and at the heart of the scheme the 200m x 90m new main product building. This building will house 3 separate heavy crane systems, horizontal kiln lines and associated plant, a phased demolition / temporary works scheme was required over the construction period.  JPP’s role also included pre-planning, temporary works design, civil, structural, and architectural support.
