The speculative design and build of a 150,000sqft factory and office unit, on a brownfield site, for Berkeley Modular. Berkeley Modular is a newly-formed company, founded to produce a volumetric modular housing solution, specifically for the Berkeley Group. The client therefore required a substantial, purpose-built space. The factory space totalled 134,000 sqft, with the remaining 16,000 sqft being distributed over two storeys, this unit was created to the client’s exact specifications, ensuring that it fulfilled their every requirement.
Additionally, Readie were also involved in the construction of associated external plant areas, security kiosk, covered cycle racks, yard, footpaths, parking, drainage, attenuation, external lighting, highway works, and general external works and landscaping. It was essential for the building to achieve a BREEAM ‘very good’ rating, and works were therefore undertaken with the purpose of attaining this rating.
