Steel rises on new Yorkshire distribution centre
Working on behalf of Caddick Construction, Caunton Engineering is fabricating, supplying and erecting 1,600t of steelwork for a £50M distribution centre near Wakefield, West Yorkshire.
Known as Wakefield 515, the distribution centre is the second to be built on a site being developed by global real estate investment manager AEW.
Caddick Construction started work on the 47,500m2 facility in the first quarter of 2020, with completion set for later this year (2021).
The large portal-framed building is 130m-wide × 348m-long and consists of four internal 32.5m-wide spans, supporting a curved feature roof.
