Housing Units Distribution Centre, Hollinwood, Oldham

The scheme comprised of a 33,000sqft extension, incorporating an additional 12 bays to the existing Distribution Centre which remained operational 7 days a week.

Construction consisted of vibro-piled foundations, RC base’s and ground beams, a steel contractor designed portal frame, with a combination of built up/composite or masonry construction.
PV units were installed on the roof and the internal fit-out consisted of FM2 floor slab, racking, sprinkler system, high bay lighting, heating and small power. Alterations were also made to the fire alarm systems.

Once the shell was complete and weather tight we carefully removed the existing gable cladding and steelwork, all whilst the centre was in operation.

Externally, we constructed an extension of the concrete apron along with hardstanding’s, car parking and a road for vehicular movements.

Our works were undertaken in a live environment. Close communication and co-ordination was required at all times to ensure our client’s business operates smoothly and without disruption.hout disruption.
