Seddon worked in partnership with Trebor Developments to deliver two speculative warehouse/industrial facilities suitable for B1, B2 and B8 use. Seddon acquired the land at Prime Point, Stafford at junction 14 of the M6 motorway.
The scheme provides two new-build units of 7,315m2 and 6,350m2 (GEA) to institutional standards and each facility comprised a warehouse with reception on the ground floor and offices on the first floor. The façade treatment was purposefully crisp and simple.
The Seddon team were actively involved in the design of the scheme, working in collaboration with the professional team ensuring the building design was efficient and cost-effective.
External works included a new access road and generous service yard space for vehicle manoeuvring as well as ample parking. Level access sectional overhead doors were provided to both units.
The following operations were carried out:
- Onsite and offsite drainage.
- Earthworks cut and fill of the ground onsite.
- Lime stabilisation of the existing ground.
- Gabion and Terramesh retaining walls.
- Offsite and onsite mains services installation.
- Construction of onsite roads and paths.
- Construction of a badger tunnel.
We worked collaboratively with our earthworks contractor Combined Soil Stabilisations who had over £1m of specialist plant equipment committed to the project.
Over 12000m3 of onsite earth was moved to raise levels and fill two large excavations, removing 4100 tonnes of subsoil to a licenced tip.
The retaining walls were on programme and Maccaferri, our specialist contractor, constructed 200Lm of terramesh and gabion wall systems to support the ground around Unit 1 and 2. Offsite surface water drainage for Unit 2 attenuation tank was installed by Total Ground Work Solutions in readiness for our tanks.
Off site, Energetics our mains service installer extended the gas main located on Shackleton Way to our site entrance.
