“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. They are always ready and willing to help with any enquiry and we are extremely pleased with the service our company has received.”

The development comprises a steel portal framed building, complete with built up and composite cladding, with full dock facilities, extensive external circulation hardstandings, access road and office car parking.
Having a ground floor footprint of circa 11,050m2 (119,000ft2) the building also includes approximately 650m2 (7000ft2) of mezzanine office accommodation.
Close proximity of overhead high voltage electricity cables, along with pylon situated to the rear of the site, required that careful planning and construction techniques were required to erect the building safely, whilst maximising the developable area of the site.
Due to the highly sensitive nature conservation measures, already present on the development, a dual storm water system was introduced to separate the ‘dirty’ water run off from the ‘clean’ roof drainage. The drainage systems then run into the appropriate ecologically assessed balancing ponds.
