Design and construction of a new parcel sorting and delivery hub building with associated offices, external yards, car parking and landscaping works. Cat B Fit-out works to the offices and warehouse areas have also been carried out for the occupier DPD. This is our fourth project for DPD with Readie having previously completed delivery hub’s or superhub’s in Radlett, Dagenham and Burgess Hill .
The bulk earthworks carried out on site had to be co-ordinated around a major gas pipeline running through the site, this required co-ordination with National Grid and the design and construction of a protection slab. Our foundation solution for the building was vibro-stone columns ground improvement which enabled economic foundation design and a ground bearing floor slab. Our value engineering input included alternative retaining wall design and enhanced earthworks to minimise construction thicknesses.
