Works Scope

Britcon was awarded the design and build contract for this project from our existing client. The works comprised of the construction of 36,250sq.ft of modern warehouse/industrial units of varying size from 1,250sq.ft-3,000sq.ft within in a combination of four standalone blocks in a secure gated and fenced area on a four-acre Greenfield site.

Britcon’s design team developed the project from the client's ERs to form the design, which included: Mono-pitched Steel Portal frame construction with a mixture of full height factory finished steel cladding using a mix of micro rib & trapezoidal profiled cladding and Solar reflective glazing to the double-glazed windows and entrance doors.

The floor space and internal accommodation is accessed from an electrically-operated insulated roller shutter with accommodation comprising of a small kitchenette with localised heating and toilet arrangements to DDA regulations. External areas comprised of shared forecourts, service yards and designated parking, with the addition of electric-car charging points from a tarmac-finished access road.

Key Project Challenges

  • COVID-19 procurement and resource issues.
  • Engagement of local resource and suppliers.
  • Reducing carbon and energy costs by selection of key products within the build design.

How we successfully delivered the project

  • H&S standards and arrangements contributed to the overall smooth running of the project.
  • COVID-19 provisions and arrangements were disseminated site wide to ensure there was no impact on operations and the programme.
  • Early engagement with the design team helped maximise BREEAM credits to achieve the targeted ‘Very Good’ rating.
  • Ecology and sustainable considerations were incorporated through the build process.


Added value and social impact

  • Local employment & supply chain usage.
  • Creation of local work opportunities.
  • Installation of LEDs to reduce carbon impact.
  • Levels re-designed to ensure material retained onsite and minimal material export required.
  • Ecology considerations and implementation measures used.
