Testimonials

“Steve, Alison,

Just a brief note to say it’s been a pleasure working with you guys on the DPD, Network 46 Project over the course of the last 12 months.

I visited the site earlier in the week and it looked excellent.

Hopefully there will be plenty of other opportunities for UMC and Quantum to work together again in the future.

Many Thanks again,

Matthew Salanyk

Director”

Contract was procured by negotiation with Client utilising his own Architect and Structural Engineer for the design works.

Quantum Construction Limited acted as Project Manager and Main Contractor for the works.

The project involved the extension of some 2044m2 (22,000ft2) to an existing warehouse, along with 975m2 (10,500ft2) office.

The brief required the new works to mirror the existing structure utilising the same design and material wherever possible.

A ‘Hi-Fold’ door was incorporated into the building to provide a 13.5 metre width of door. When opened, the door provides a temporary shelter to facilitate unloading vehicles in inclement weather.

Approximately 9500m2 (circ 102,250ft2) of external concrete hardstanding and infrastructure work surrounded the building.

An existing below ground gas membrane and ventilation system was extended from the original foundation and incorporated into the new works.
