Retrofitting of a ready mix concrete plan in Lescar.

Client: Béton Contrôlé du Béarn (Groupe Daniel)

Description: Supply and construction of a new hopper tower (?) with 6 bins (2 for sand and 4 for gravel), including the mixing unit with a new mixer similar to the old one.

Year: 2019

Constraints imposed by the client:

  • Maximum 4 weeks of production shutdown
  • The ground space for the on-site operation was minimal
  • The new solution had to be similar to the old one but with maintenance improved in term of cost, time spent and frequencies of intervention.

Taillefer’s solution:

  • Optimized engineering and conception with fully galvanized structure in order to maximize the lifespan and on-site construction eased by design.
