The contract was undertaken as Design and Build Main Contractor for client Standard Life Investments and Christopher Smith Associates as PQS.
Scope of Works:
The works were to extend the Service Yard of the Brakes Brothers Distribution Centre to provide access to new dock levellers, recharging points and access road.
The works at all times had to allow access for the 24/7 operation of the Distribution Centre. After the removal of 7,000m³ of earth and an existing sheet piled retaining wall, extensive new precast retaining walls and were installed, together with steel canopies and associated adoptable deep foul drainage diversion which allowed the construction of 3,600m² of pav 2 concrete hardstanding.
