Design and build project to deliver a 50,000m2 warehouse and office facility for this catering and janitorial supplier
Sisk met numerous design challenges with innovative solutions on this project, including a requirement to provide a 60m clear span and engineer racking with leg loads over 90KN.
John Sisk & Son proposed and implemented a range of innovative engineering proposals to accelerate the build programme and reduce build cost, including:-
• Use of a CAB (Clean Air Blanket) system in lieu of traditional vented gas membrane below the ground floor slab
• Use of large bay steel fibre reinforced concrete suspended ground floor steels and external yard slab
• Optimising the slab and supporting pile layout to dramatically reduce number of piles needed
• Use of composite roof sheets in place of traditional built up system
Other projects John Sisk & Son has delivered for St Modwen include:
Quinton Business Parks, Birmingham - One 3 storey and two 2 storey office buildings, circulation roads, block paved parking, site drainage and balancing ponds.
Longbridge Office Development, Birmingham - Two landmark office blocks totalling 6.500m2 as the first stage of the redevelopment of the former Rover works complemented by extensive soft and hard landscaping.
Screwfix Direct, Yeovil - Demolition of existing warehouse unit and construction of three and four storey office accommodation with associated external works phased to facilitate continuing operations.
