Distribution centre boosts regeneration scheme
Caunton Engineering has erected the steelwork frame for a 213,000m² regional logistics centre for the Travis Perkins Group.
The £35M logistics centre, near Warrington, will supply Travis Perkins’ wholesale and retail outlets across the region, supporting around 450 jobs on site.
Caunton worked on behalf of the main contractor Sir Robert McAlpine and was responsible for the design of the two thousand tonnes-plus frame and its associated connections.
The building comprises a ten span portal frame structure – each span 35m wide and 17.5m high to the portal’s haunch.
The distribution centre forms an integral part of the much larger Omega regeneration scheme which is being developed by the Miller Group, in partnership with the Royal Bank of Scotland.
