This industrial manufacturing project is a modern production facility which replaced two outdated existing factories. The project consisted of a new steel frame, 12,000m2, high bay factory together with a 3-storey office facility.

Cundall’s skills and expertise in the industrial sector were recognised by our appointment to provide an outline design and performance specification for this low energy, low carbon DREAM ‘Excellent’ (a sustainability assessment for defence construction projects) rated facility. Our aspiration was to create an environmentally responsible scheme utilising existing central plant facilities, whilst recognising and understanding the operation of the facility.

The project required 1,500 CFA piles, a heavily reinforced floor slab and substantial concrete machine bases to micron settlement tolerance; complex natural ventilation modelling.

Close co-ordination was required with the client team in order to deal proactively with numerous potential changes investigated and instructed.
