Merrow Road Salt Barn

Value: £108,000
Client: Surrey County Council
Duration: 10 weeks

Merrow Road Salt Barn holds Surrey Council’s winter rock salt supply for the entire county. The corrosive nature of the salt had taken its toll on the concrete structure. Niblock was contracted to provide a solution to extend the life-span of the store for a further five years. After extensive intrusive investigation and testing Niblock rejuvenated the barn, carrying out the following works:

  • Controlled removal of Asbestos corrugated sheet cladding.
  • Replacement corrugated sheet cladding.
  • Extensive treatment of corroded steel reinforcement and replacement steelwork.
  • Concrete repairs to retaining walls using Fosroc proprietary repair system.
  • Replacement of decayed timber horizontal tie beams.
  • Installation of additional structural steelwork supports.
