Caunton Engineering are pleased to have supplied the steelwork for a warehouse and distribution centre in Rochdale for JD Sports. So successful has JD Sports been with their Kingsway Business Park warehouse, built nearly six years ago, that an extension has been built.
The original warehouse was a massive 600,000 plus sq. feet and the new extension contains over 300,000 sq. feet. The building itself, in five equal 37metre span portal-framed bays plus a single smaller span, is 203 metres wide and 153 metres long. The building houses four mezzanine floors and ancillary office areas in addition. The framework requires nearly 1,600te of structural steelwork.
Caunton have supplied the steelwork on a design and build basis for main contractor Winvic Construction which accelerates the programme and significantly drives down cost
