Winvic wins contract to deliver two steel-framed units for Clowes Developments

Winvic Construction has broken ground at Castlewood Business Park near Nottingham, where the firm has been contracted by Clowes Developments to construct two industrial warehouses concurrently for NFU Mutual.

The project’s steelwork contractor is Caunton Engineering and both facilities will be completed within a short timescale, with handover scheduled for July. 

Winvic is delivering two speculatively-built modern warehouses. Plot 1 (pictured) is 14,700m2, 15m-high with 18 docks and four level access doors. Approximately 956m2 of office space over two-storeys will be created inside the facility and a 250m2 external hub office will also be constructed.

The second unit is known as Plot 8 and is 11,700m2, 12.5m high with 12 docks, four level access doors and includes 715m2 office space, also over two-storeys.

Winvic will begin by undertaking cut, fill and compaction works to create the plateau before completing the foundations. The steelwork erection is due to begin before the end of this month, and the cladding installation will start in February.

Winvic Construction Director, Ben Shearman, said: “Winvic has been working with Clowes Developments for some time now on both industrial, and civils and infrastructure schemes including a new purpose-built facility for Deichmann Shoes in Corby.

“We’re delighted they have appointed Winvic for the fourth time this year to construct this modern speculative unit at Castlewood Business Park. Our experienced team is looking forward to hitting the ground running in January and delivering the scheme safely and rapidly within a seven-month period.” 

James Richards, Clowes Developments, said: “Castlewood is now almost completely built and we are very happy to see these two plots being developed as part of NFU Mutual’s property stock.”
