Gallagher was appointed by Chalcroft to redevelop an existing steel frame building into two new separate industrial/warehouse units (Units 1 & 2). We secured this repeat business with Chalcroft following our contract with them to extend an Ardo coldstore in Charing.
Unit 1 is a self-contained warehouse/industrial unit with first floor offices, totalling 50,000 sq ft. Our works required a new 1,500m2 suspended pile slab extension to the southern end of the unit being constructed. In addition, the existing building footprint slab of this unit was found to be in poor condition after its former use as a document store and as a result the client instructed Gallagher to create a 3,100m2 RC overlay slab.
The works to Unit 1 also involved significant drainage and attenuation tank installation, BWIC services and external works including a new 3,200m2 PQ RC service yard.
Unit 2 is 40,000 sq ft and was pre-let to Selco, the national builders merchant. Our works were more straight forward than for Unit 1, with new drainage, BWIC services, PQ service yard and tarmacadam and landscaping areas being constructed.
Aggregates were supplied by Gallagher Aggregate Ltd and concrete pile heads were sent to Hermitage Quarry for recycling.
