The project consisted of construction of 3 Warehouses totalling 66,000 sq ft (6,300 sq m) and external areas.

 

Each warehouse required differing end user requirements including one unit which incorporated offices

 

The site required a cut and fill operation and lime stabilisation to meet the required construction parameters.

 

The buildings were sequentially constructed with an overlap which ensured the shortest construction period whilst still allowing for any unforeseen design challenges to be addressed for the following buildings.

 

Due to the brownfield location of the site party wall agreements were in place with neighbours.

 

Drainage on the site incorporated attenuation, to reduce the impact on the local infrastructure, which was installed in the external areas, reducing the area of work during peak construction periods.
