“Quantum recently carried out a complex re-roofing and upgrading project of a 60,000 sq.ft. warehouse at Parkhouse Interchange, Newcastle-Under-Lyme for London based Newcombe Estates. This involved the complete replacement of the 1980’s asbestos roof and re-fitting of the offices. The three month project was carried out during one of the worst winters in recent history but was completed successfully.”

The main works consist of a 22,090ft2 (2,052m2) extension to an existing distribution warehouse, including associated external works, alterations to existing underground drainage system, new parking and landscaping.


The new steel portal, complete with profiled metal cladding, was specified and constructed to precisely match the existing building.


Essential to success of the project was the maintenance of access, for the client’s distribution operations, across a small shared access yard.


The degree of difficulty in managing the operation was high due to the new construction being undertaken along two sides of the existing yard with the client’s existing building on the third.


Careful planning of the works, including undertaking specific tasks to suit the particular periods of high intensity use of the existing facility by the client, was successfully translated into the programme for the works.
