A new build 3 unit estate comprising over 1,000,000ft2 of industrial space. A factory building for Gestamp, a major European car parts manufacturer, A large speculative unit for First Panattoni and a speculative unit for Bericote Properties. The works involved major remediation of the former chemical works, with significant insitu remediation carried out to enable re-use of all earthworks materials on site.
Our value engineered solution for the very large press pits in the Gestamp unit involved Secant piling and temporary propping with the piled box and capping beam acting as both temporary and permanent structure assisting in the prevention of flotation of the very large concrete structures constructed below the water table. Our stormwater solution for the estate allowed construction of a pond at high level above the water table with stormwater pumped into the pond from the buildings and external works.
