Project  /  Warehouse Extension, Magna Park, Lutterworth

Client  /  IDI Gazeley

Value & Duration  /  £1.2m - 14 weeks


This project involved construction of a warehouse side extension and canopy. The works were carried out in a live environment where Travis Perkins Group continued to operate a busy distribution hub, the extension being positioned on the far side of the building from the site access required us to form temporary safe routes across the existing facility in order to carry out the works safely and efficiently. The works also required removal of the existing cladding on the side of the building, our innovative steelwork design solution allowed us to offer removal of existing parapet steelwork and internal gable columns in addition. Thus, providing a true building experience.

Project  /  New Build Retail Park

Client  /  Location 3 Properties

Value & Duration  /  £5m - 28 weeks


A new build retail park on a greenfield site in Burgess Hill, West Sussex. The works involved construction of a new B&Q store and Pets at Home store. Extensive glazed elevations and rainscreen cladding areas were provided to satisfy the local planning authority. Highways and drainage improvements were also carried out under s278 and s104 agreements. Value engineering carried out by ourselves included re-design of the structural frame and lime stabilisation of external areas to reduce muckaway and stone import quantities. Our team were also able to fully re-design the drainage design for both on site and off site works resulting in a considerably reduced amount of work on the public highway.

Project  /  New Delivery Hub

Client  /  SEGRO Plc on behalf of GeoPost

Value & Duration  /  £4m - 33 weeks


The works comprise the construction of a new build warehouse and office building with associated external works, a site that required extensive sheet piled retaining walls and reinforced earth embankments. The steeply sloping site shares boundaries with an adjacent business park, main line railway, the River Colne and Colney Street. With careful interpretation of the tender documents and planning drawings, we were able to implement the option of altering the floor and external levels in order to reduce the amount of excess soil disposal. We were able to raise floor levels and reduce the amount of spoil that would have been generated.
