“Lands’ End is a well known clothing retailer which operates from their 240,000 square foot, state of the art distribution centre in Rutland. The company has been in the industry since 1963 and has grown from their origins in Wisconsin, USA to supply most of Europe through their online network.
Quantum Construction worked on the multi million pound extension to their European distribution centre, delivering the project ahead of schedule whilst meeting the detailed environmental challenges imposed by the client.
Adam Osbourne, Facilities Manager for the Lands’ End Company says, “Quantum Construction has provided our company with a successful and efficient service on the extension of our facility.

Bletchley Retail Park
Phase three works completed the project to re-brand and upgrade the existing retail park. The earlier phases included forming division / segregation walls within the existing units and overcladding the external walls to create a contemporary finish.
This last phase of the project included increasing existing car parking provision, both by extending the existing tarmacadam areas and conversion of rear service yard.
A new traffic system, introduced to control use of rear service yard parking, required inclusion of new junction onto main estate roadway and provision of electric gated egress through existing rear service access roadway.
To complete the advertising arrangements, an illuminated totem sign was erected on a reinforced concrete foundation and connected into the retail park’s electric lighting ring main. Construction works were undertaken during normal working hours with due consideration given to retail customers.
Trading in all units was not adversely disturbed during the
whole period of the works.
