Caunton have completed their 28th successful project for Wilson Bowden Developments. The warehouse and office facility for paper recycling and manufacturing giant Kappa SSK is the third phase of the Nexus Point development at Birmingham.
The project as illustrated consists of 35,000 square feet of warehouse with 1,500 square feet of attached 2-storey office block and gatehouse. The warehouse is portal framed with hipped roof and has been designed to cater for future extension at one end.
The 430t project was designed and managed by one of the four Caunton specialist business units, which is dedicated to Wilson Bowden design & build projects. Each of these units is focussed on providing the highest levels of customer service and giving a single point of contact for Caunton Clients throughout the life of the project.
Erection of the frame, plus co-ordination of site activities with other specialist contractors, was carried out by Caunton’s in-house site staff in only 4 weeks.
Architect for the project was Peter Hing and Jones and the project's consulting engineer was Clarke Bond Partnership.
