Alpha modular waste management facilities buildings are designed for permanent or semi-permanent installation. They can be relocated at any time throughout their life or restructured to suit changes in operation size if required.
Alpha system buildings are available in sizes starting from 100 square metres and ranging up to thousands of square metres. They feature a patented translucent membrane roof system that allows daylight to penetrate the structure, reducing or eliminating the need for expensive electric lighting during hours of daylight.
The roof system allows heights of 12m and above to be achieved, which is often a key requirement for processing facilities.
Alpha system buildings do not require traditional foundations. They can be installed on existing concrete surfaces or on concrete bases at intervals of 5m, making them a cheaper alternative to traditional buildings.
Useful Structures offers a full service covering all structural requirements including envelope, internal partitions, facilities, air conditioning, heating.
Design options include single and double leaf doors, roller shutter doors and a choice of external colours and profiles as standard.
The system is building regulated and complies with BS 6399 for wind and snow loadings.
