The design and build construction of a 45,000ft2 warehouse and offices sub-divided into 2 units.
Extensive dismantling and demolition works, together with recycling and remediation was undertaken, to bring this former industrial site up to a suitable condition ready for construction works to commence.
The scheme has been developed to comply with the NRIA (Natural Resources Impact Analysis) requirements and provides 20% renewable energy with high levels of insulation, air permeability at less than 4.8m3/(H.M2). Passive ventilation to the office areas was achieved through the installation of wind-catchers, lighting of office areas was enhanced with the use of sun-pipes, warehouse heating and ventilation is provided by the use of “Solarwall” installed to the south elevation, whilst the office heating and hot water is produced using an Air Source Heat Pump installation together with a state of the art Building Management System. In conjunction with a rain water harvesting system any surplus water is disposed of through a series of S.U.D.S soak-away tanks.
The contract was registered and certified with the Considerate Constructors Scheme.
