and Milling Equipment


BK GRAIN

BK GRAIN

BK Grain are specialists in grain handling, storage and milling equipment, as

well as providing a full design and build service for steel framed buildings,

in-house fabrication facilities and a fully qualified electrical division - NICEIC

accredited.

With projects ranging from servicing to breakdowns and electrical to new

machinery installations and complete greenfield site projects, BK Grain have

the experience and expertise to manage any agricultural, commercial or

industrial project.

With our strong in-house team, close links to steel frame suppliers and

35 years’ experience in the grain storage and handling industry, we are

well-placed to provide a fully self-sufficient service in all areas, from initial

consultancy and advice to full design, build and aftercare, including

ongoing electrical or mechanical service and maintenance with 24/7

emergency breakdown response.

There are two main drivers behind the service that BK Grain delivers to

each and every customer. The first is that we use our experience and design

expertise to work closely with our customers to deliver the best possible

solution. But we have also built our reputation on providing top quality

equipment and service that ensures our installations remain operational for

the longer term.

This is reflected in the fact that BK Grain has a Royal Warrant in recognition

of our work in installing grain stores at Windsor, originally awarded in 2007

and continually extended since then.

With all of our grain handling projects, we pride ourselves on the top

level planning and design support that can often contribute significantly

to the overall success of a scheme well before the first digger has even

arrived on site. A member of our planning and design team will discuss

your individual needs, such as increased storage or more efficient grain

handling and drying and will propose the most efficient and cost-effective

solution for your requirements. We will then produce full plans in line with

latest regulations and standards, liaise with the local council, commission

and project manage the building through to completion – a full end to end

service.

Some of the products and equipment we design and install include:

• Grain Storage

• Grain Dryers

• Storage Silos and Hoppers

• Ventilation Equipment

• Cleaners

• Mechanical Handling

• Weighing Equipment

We also provide equipment, spares and a repair service for damaged parts,

keeping many fast moving parts and second hand refurbished machinery in

stock all year round. This means we can often respond to emergency issues

quickly, ensuring that downtime is kept to an absolute minimum.

BK Buildings

Crop Stores

BK Grain have been synonymous with the

design, build and equipping of high quality

crop stores for nearly 40 years. If you buy

from BK Grain, you know that they will

deliver the best possible solution for your

crop storage needs and will be there from

the start to assist you at every step of the

way.

You know that your new steel framed crop

store will meet the highest of farm assured

standards allowing for the control of air

movement, aeration and drying systems.

BK Grain can offer guidance on every aspect

from site location and groundworks options

to the choice of crop storage panels and

dryer specification to the size of the building

to meet your requirements. For example,

a large grain store building can be can be divided up to create separate

areas for drying and general -purpose storage that will enable the farm to

be flexible in its storage facilities. This also reduces the overall cost as it is

potentially combining two buildings into one. We can also help with your

planning application and offer a full ‘turnkey’, including all the electrical

work, that avoids you having to deal with several different contractors.

Livestock buildings

BK Grain are well known and respected for their expertise in grain

handling and storage but also have extensive experience in the design

and installation of steel framed livestock buildings that fit within the overall

landscape and often need to meet strict specifications from planning

authorities.

BK Buildings will ensure that all materials used will fulfil not only the

practical requirements of your farm but also enhance the appearance of the

structure so that it blends in with the surrounding countryside and therefore

has much less of an environmental impact.

When designing your new livestock building, the primary concern will

always be for the welfare and safety of your animals. Every detail will

be noted and taken into account from the ventilation and airflow to the

disposal of muck and the ease of use of the veterinary and stock handling

systems.

Our team will be ready and willing to assist you from your initial enquiry

right through to your finished building and are, of course, able to offer you

a full ‘turnkey’ service so that you only have one company to deal with for

everything from groundworks right up to the electrical installation.

“We had a 40 tonne per hour Perry grain drier installed with handling equipment. We have found the Perry

machines have quite low noise levels and we particularly like the Perry PLC control panel. It’s really simple to

use and the text message alerts are really helpful. The automatic set up makes getting the drier running at its

optimum for our crops really simple, and with the panel incorporating the handling too, the re-routing of the

crop is easier than we could have hoped for.”

Equestrian Buildings

BK Buildings are well known for their innovative use of materials and, together

with their skilled workforce, for creating bespoke steel framed buildings for

equestrian clients. From initial site visit, estimating, design and construction,

we work to create an individual and bespoke building that meets both the

demands and needs of a modern equestrian facility.

Understanding these needs enables us to design a complete building

allowing us to coordinate the installation of indoor surfaces, canter boards,

doorways, stables, tack rooms and feed stores to maximise the full potential

of your building. At BK Buildings, we also fully appreciate that your building

not only needs to work well from within but also needs to look great from the

outside and this is why we are so particular when choosing the best materials

for the job that work with and not against the surrounding landscape.

We are also able to offer you a full ‘turnkey’ service so that you only have

one company to deal with from the groundworks to the electrical installation

and final handover.

Industrial Buildings

BK’s experience will enable

your company to develop

modern and purpose- built

facilities that meet the needs

of both your workforce and

your customers. From waste

recycling centres, storage units

and warehouses to fully-fitted

modern offices we can design

the right building for you

whatever your needs.

• Flexibility in design, reliability in construction.

• Setting the standards in steel framed industrial buildings.

From initial site visit, estimating, design and construction BK will work

with you to ensure that you get the individual, tailor made building that

meets the demands of a modern industrial steel framed building. At BK

we are able to help with your planning application, design and deliver your

building and do all the necessary fitting out, including all the electrical work,

so that you only have one company to deal with for your whole project.

have a team of very capable breakdown electricians who carry a multitude

of spares to improve down-time, saving our customers money. We also have

a host of suppliers so that if we do not have a part we can source it quickly,

as we know time not working is money lost.

Our electricians have extensive knowledge of building and repairing control

panels, both farm and industrial, along with fault finding and we can install

and work on ladder logic programming systems.

We are able to design and install electrical systems to conform with all ATEX

requirements.

Our fabrication department has been CE marked to EN1090-1 since March

2015 to Execution Class 2. Our Notified body number is 1224 and held with

BMTRADA.

We currently have an Amada 3m press-brake and guillotine with a large

workshop and 8 ton overhead crane, including lathes and all other

machinery required for a busy fabricating team. We operate with four

qualified welding operators all CE approved.

We manufacture our own elevator and reception pits, form conveyor

sections, cleaner stands and platforms, stairs and ladders all to the latest

regulations and all CE approved (where required). We have undertaken

contracts for ornate balustrades and stairways for domestic clients. Our

department has also designed and made various sets of sluice gates that

are now in use on the rivers Kennet, the Avon and the Thames. We have

also carried out a project fabricating cattle feed gates as a customer was let

down.

BK has designed and fabricated its own steel doorway barriers for grain

stores which at 1t each allows a farm to hold back grain in its store without

central pillars and do not degrade or take a long time to set up like wooden

units, these again have structural calculations and are CE marked.

Stainless Steel work is undertaken frequently especially in the mills and food

processing plants.

All galvanising is carried out to EN ISO 1461 on our products, if the

customer requires it.

We also have a spray booth and carry out all painting in-house if preferred.
