Rhenus Logistics, New Headquarters, Manchester

This development utilised the combined skills of CPUK Construction and Civil Engineering.

The Boysnope Wharf Warehouse and Infrastructure project comprised of the construction of a 50,000sqft industrial warehouse facility, incorporating 10,000sqft of offices on a 3.3 acre site designated within the Port Salford development area and has provided a new state of the art headquarters for Rhenus Logistics.

Prior to construction commencing our sister company CPUK Civils and Remediation extensively remediated and stabilised the site with specialist equipment. This alternative design, mitigated the majority of the material that required to be disposed from site and significantly reduced the stone imported by up to 85% providing both time and cost savings.

Following remediation, the new building is supported by the installation of over 750 concrete piles. The building has a steel frame with external elevations comprising of curtain walling/aluminium windows and a mixture of composite and built up cladding systems providing 2 storey office accommodation.

Works also involved improvement to the existing access and provision of a new drainage outfall into the Manchester Ship Canal. In addition, we provided 16 dock levellers and shelters, a service yard, car parking and external landscaping.

“I would like to pass on my thanks for your efforts in mobilising this scheme and getting some excellent progress. I am impressed with the team and the management of the project process.”
