Value: £2,140,000

Demolition of an existing warehouse and farm buildings to make way for prestigious new two storey steel frame offices with specialist air-conditioned warehousing facilities.

The structure is a traditional portal framed building with the office area clad in brickwork with flint large panels mirroring local farm buildings. The project included extensive external works to accommodate articulated vehicle movements, hard and soft landscaping and the construction of a lake which attenuated the release of rain and surface water drainage into the local drainage systems.
