what we did...

Wilfreda Beehive, a prominent player in the transport sector, required a new steel frame building to serve as a bus wash facility in Doncaster. To fulfil their requirements, Wilfreda Beehive contacted Midbrook Steel Buildings. This case study outlines the successful execution of the project by our team at Midbrook Steel Buildings, including site survey, planning application, foundation construction and steelwork installation.


Wilfreda Beehive, operating in the transport industry, needed a dedicated bus wash building in Doncaster to support their fleet maintenance operations. The project required a reliable and efficient steel framed building supplier to design and erect a steel frame building that met their specifications. Here at Midbrook Steel Buildings, we are known for our expertise in steel structures and construction, therefore we were delighted to have been chosen for the steel building project.

Site Survey and Planning Application

We initiated the project by conducting a comprehensive site survey of the designated location in Doncaster. This survey provided crucial insights into the site’s conditions, enabling us to design an optimal structure and plan the construction process accordingly.

Subsequently, the Midbrook team took responsibility for submitting a planning application on behalf of Wilfreda Beehive. Recognising the importance of compliance with local regulations, Midbrook ensured that all necessary documents, including a flood risk assessment, were prepared and submitted as part of the application process.

Foundation Construction

With the planning application approved, Midbrook Steel Buildings proceeded to construct pad foundations and a concrete slab for the control room lean-to structure. The team leveraged their foundation design and construction expertise to provide a solid building base, ensuring its long-term stability and functionality.

Steelwork Installation

Once the foundation was completed, Midbrook’s skilled steel erection team took charge of supplying and fitting the steelwork components. With meticulous attention to detail and adherence to industry standards, we ensured the precise installation of the steel frame. Additionally, they expertly applied single skin cladding to enhance the building’s weather resistance and aesthetic appeal.
