Caunton Engineering are supplying the structural steelwork to main contractor Winvic Construction for a 10,900m2 state-of-the-art warehouse in Andover for Berry Bros. & Rudd, a London-based fine wine merchant.
The steel-framed structure has been designed to be carbon neutral utilising BIM Level 2. The building will generate its own energy supply, will operate with rainwater harvesting and have electric vehicle charging points.
The single storey warehouse located at Andover Business Park will have the capacity to store over 14 million bottles of wine at optimum temperature and in a humidity-controlled environment. This will be achieved through an enhanced specification roof and wall system that is said to provide a superior building envelope with excellent thermal performance and internal climate control, removing the need for a secondary internal construction.
An EPC rating of A+ and BREEAM rating of ‘Very Good’ will be achieved.
This most interesting and impressive project is reported in more detail in the September 2021 New Steel Construction press article – for access to this please use this link.
