“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

Initially conceived as a 5,600m2 (60,280ft2) extension to the existing JCB World Parts Centre. Midway through the construction process the Client’s requirements were reappraised and a decision made to double the capacity of the building and proportionately reduce the external
hardstanding areas.

Quantum Construction Ltd quickly gave every assistance to the Client’s design team and helped initiate the changes as economically as possible, given the circumstances.

In order to assist a proportion of usage of the partially constructed first phase, a temporary weather proof screen was erected across the full gable of the building at the point
where the further extension work would commence.

The final design for the project incorporated a high level of service integration with existing facilities. This was particularly relevant when constructing additional office facility, of some
1,275m2 (13,725ft2), within the existing building.

During the whole period construction works were closely aligned with Client activities to ensure JCB production was not adversely effected.
