Key features

  • The new buildings required piled foundations and cast in-situ suspended floor slabs due to poor ground conditions and contaminated ground
  • Raised reinforced concrete plinths and floor slab facilitate level loading to delivery trucks
  • The finger building extensions were designed with mini portal frames due to number of delivery bay openings
  • New extensions house state of the art conveyor systems to upgrade the facility and increase delivery capacity
