Complicated reinforced concrete foundations required for new foundry area to support 250 kg, 500 kg and 1 tonne furnaces and 2 No 9.0 m diameter turntables.  An existing water quench tank was also modified, together with the provision of a new oil quench tank which was cast around a steel liner.

The new foundations were built on existing furnace foundations and pits constructed by Beighton Construction Limited in the 1970’s.
