Although based and firmly rooted in our home county of Kent, we increasingly work with clients further afield. In this example, we were awarded the contract by TSL to carry out groundworks for three warehouse units, as part of its expansion at Magna Park North in Lutterworth, Leicestershire. The award was based on a lump sum after a short competitive tender process and a period of negotiation. Together, the three new units provide a million square feet of storage area.
Our initial Phase 1 work scope comprises 7,400m3 of foundations, 5km of drainage ranging from 150mm to 1050mm diameters, installation of 7nr interceptors and 3nr rainwater harvesting tanks, 8 kilometres of kerbing and channels, 13 kilometres of service trenches, and 17,000m2 of permeable paving including all paving construction build up.
Even more impressive than the project’s scale is its sheer speed, with just 17 weeks allowed for completion of Phase 1. Our track record of delivery and previous work with TSL at Belvedere in Kent gave the client the confidence to place this fast paced strategic project in our hands.
Following the successful completion of Phase 1 works we were awarded a further contract to undertake similar works for a 330,000 square foot warehouse taking our combined contract value to over £10m, in a similarly rapid timescale.
