Description

The overall 65 acre former Rolls Royce East Works site was purchased by St Francis Group & Marcol Industrial in 2007 and has undergone major demolition and remediation works to develop the site.

CWA were appointed to carry out civil and structural engineering design for all plots within the phases A-D portion of the site. The initial phases include 15 industrial and warehouse units with a total area of 580,000 sqft and with provision for future subdivision of the units to reflect market conditions.

CWA worked with the wider team to discuss a number of approaches to enabling works, infrastructure requirements and ground improvement as part of the early design. The team subsequently carried out tender designs for all on-plot civil and structural engineering aspects and liaised with the wider team during tender negotiations. CWA were also novated to the successful contractor and have carried out detailed design for all non-specialist design items and assisting coordination of contractor design elements.

The buildings are typically steel portal frames with mezzanines to provide office space, with pad foundations supported on vibro stone columns.
