Traditional new-build project to construct a three-storey warehouse, research and development facility for a specialist lighting manufacturer.

The 25,000 sq ft Industrial building consisted of a steel frame on piled foundations with composite roof and wall cladding.

Aluminium ribbon windows were installed to both front and rear elevations together with proprietary roller shutter doors. A goods and passenger lift was installed along with new internal metal staircases. The project achieved a ‘very good’ BREEAM rating.

The building is ‘wedged’ between existing light industrial units, one of which housed the Client, its footprint covers the whole of the site. This presented a considerable logistical challenge to service the site with the minimum of disruption to neighbouring businesses.
