The Project comprises a 1,100,000 sqft transport depot and warehouse facility, with offices for the Range group. The main unit is approximately 480m x 220m on plan with some 100nr dock levellers a separate recycling building of 640m2. The foundations are all piled with a combination of precast and steel tubes, some 16m average driven depth.
The main floor slab due to the pour ground conditions is also supported on precast driven piles with a total of 13,500nr 900mm diameter reinforced flared head pile caps being cast by ourselves to a tolerance of – 5mm/+0mm, to allow the slab to slide over them whilst still being supported, these being dug, cast and backfilled at a rate of some 200 per day.
58,000m2 of concrete service yard a considerable percentage of which was cast before the main building steel was erected.
