Cundall was appointed to provide multi-disciplinary engineering design consultancy for the construction of a new industrial print works and warehousing facility for Reed Print.

Cundall replaced another consultant on this project and re-started the design process from scratch. With fresh ideas, enthusiasm and a commitment to project delivery, the team got the scheme on site within just three months of appointment. A further site investigation was carried out, which yielded considerable savings in the substructure design.

The building is located on the site of a previous facility which had been destroyed by fire. Cundall examined the existing drainage and used this to minimise capital costs. As the printing presses were sensitive to foundation movement, they were supported by means of independent foundations.

The structure was designed with two objectives: to achieve a 'semi-clean’ environment and to allow easy reconfiguration of the manufacturing and warehousing operations.
