We are currently on-site undertaking the extension to an existing warehouse to create a larger logistics store for Portwest Clothing.
This Project has an internal floor area of circa 8000m2 with height at the ridge being 23m. The high bay racking sits on a concrete floor slab to FM1 tolerance.
The reduced level excavation quantity of 17100m3 over an area of 15300m2 and commensurate stoning up was undertaken before the excavation and casting of the ground bearing pad and beam foundations.
The new warehouse ‘wraps around’ an existing warehouse so that once complete forms and L shaped facility. To enable this to be undertaken and the majority of the existing Warehouse to continue operating we constructed a high bay fire and weatherproofed wall some 15m high with the quarter section of the existing warehouse effectively becoming part of the new footprint.
The steel frame interconnections and claddings at this junction were a complex design process and involved 3D modelling and close co-operation between the Design Team and Supply Chain facilitated by our PM. The steel frame, roof cladding and wall cladding has been completed with the internal concrete floor pour underway.
