Keeping disruption to a minimum – Trinity Farm Distribution Centre
Caddick Construction required a bespoke gatehouse which would reflect the architectural style of its client’s 1.3 million sq ft distribution warehouse in Knottingley, West Yorkshire. The gatehouse marks the main entrance to the warehouse, so blocking access to the main site was out of the question for Caddick.
To keep disruption to the minimum and to ensure that the site was fully accessible, the main contractor appointed Elite Systems to devise an off-site solution. Elite finalised the design and agreed the materials with the main contractor, including the Kingspan coated aluminium architectural wall panels, which were finished in Hamlet to co-ordinate with the finish of the main warehouse building.
The finished gatehouse – fully factory fitted out and including office and warehouse facilities – was craned into position on the pre-prepared foundations and connected to the utilities on-site in just 90 minutes.
