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”

Works consisted of the construction of a single storey retail unit, which was divided into units for Costa Coffee and Subway.

The shell building design  offered a carbon neutral usage of the building through a well choreographed installation of passive air systems, underfloor heating, air source heat pumps, photovoltaic’s and rainwater harvesting.

The distinctive curved design was achieved by the use of timber glue-lam beams, a curved roof and timber rain screen cladding. Curtain walling to the remaining elevations ensured that the units were supplied with plenty of daylight.

Construction took place in a busy, operational retail park with a tight site footprint, whilst also incorporating alterations to the car park, landscaping and introduction of additional mains services
