Client – Ferring Controlled Therapeutics Limited
Project Sector – Private Sector
Project Description – New build 4,000ft² storage facility extension comprising a steel portal frame on standard concrete foundations with a reinforced concrete floor slab. Internal fit-out works included mezzanine floor and storage racking, cold room store, whiterock wall cladding to internal walls and associated M&E works.
Role – On being appointed Principal Contractor we undertook to design, manage and co-ordinate the construction works using both sub-contractors and our own direct labour.
The works involved breaking out high level ground rock under the building footprint prior to constructing a steel framed structure with composite wall and roof panels, the inner lining of the extension walls being a designed liner tray providing both structural integrity and a ‘clean’ finish, crucial for the storage of the Client’s products. The new extension was connected to the existing factory through existing and new openings via roller and FE doors on the existing elevations.
Designed elements included a syphonic roof drainage system, the roof and wall cladding works and electrical services.
The mechanical works was another key element of the building, with the AC installation being of particular importance to provide an ambient climate for employees and stored products alike within the storage extension area.
This new extension was required to be built with minimum disruption to the operation of the Client’s manufacturing business. This was achieved due to close communication with the Client’s operational staff and scheduling deliveries to minimise disruption.
