Nutrient Management Centre
New Nutrient Management Centre, Hillsborough
Whitemountain constructed the new Nutrient Management Centre at the Hillsborough AFBI. The Nutrient Management Centre is used for research into agriculture nutrient management systems.
The building construction consists of a reinforced concrete floor slab and walls with structural steel and cladded upper walls and roof. As part of the works it was required to connect pipework into the existing nutrient storage and management systems which integrated the new centre into the existing site facilities. Above and below ground storage tanks were also installed along with pumps for the handling of the materials.
