Work starts on final phase at Redditch Gateway
Main contractor Winvic Construction has been appointed by developer Stoford to deliver two industrial warehouses, forming the second and final phase of development at Redditch Gateway.
Severfield is fabricating, supplying and erecting the steelwork for both industrial warehouses. One unit is 13,200m² with two-storey offices totalling 1,700m2, and the second comprises 23,885m2 of warehouse and 2,749m2 of three-storey office space.
The earthworks programme, to create the development plateaus, has begun and will comprise 108,000m3 of cut and fill and the diversion of two courses of Blacksoil brook, which currently cross the site. The foundations will be installed from May and the eight-week steel frame erection programme commences in July.
Danny Nelson, Winvic’s Head of Industrial, Distribution and Logistics, said: “The latest approach to digital design is being employed on the Redditch Gateway scheme and it’s facilitated faster and clearer insights and solutions across the design, materials, and construction programmes and sustainability. The team has already made some great progress in the past week preparing for the watercourse diversion and we look forward to handing over the two facilities in December 2023.”
