Framptons Distribution Centre

Owing to securing a large distribution contract our clients required a new 75,000 square foot warehouse to be constructed within the shortest possible timescale to enable them to manage their increased workload effectively.

A steel frame construction, clad using a composite insulated system was chosen and due to the archaeological issues of the site we constructed this on a raft floor with the toe being cast initially to allow the frame to be erected swiftly, thus enabling the project to move forward at pace. A separate two storey office block was also constructed as well as external yard area and car parking facilities. During the last three weeks of the contract our client’s required access to the building to enable their racking system to be formed and careful liaison and collaboration between all parties on site was vital to ensure the contract continued smoothly and efficiently. The project was completed within an impressive 22 weeks and has provided our clients with the ideal space needed to deliver their new commitments.
