Caunton Engineering supplied the structural steelwork for two new distribution centres at a site located adjacent to Manchester Airport, one of the North West’s most strategically-located logistics parks. Working on behalf of Winvic Construction, Caunton Engineering designed, fabricated, supplied and erected 1,000t of steelwork for the scheme.
The first building Unit Three is approximately 110m-long x 115m-wide with a 15m clear height to the underside of the haunch. The structure will offer 11,900m² of industrial or warehouse space and features three internal spans of 38.33m. It also includes a three-storey integral 930m² office block and plant deck positioned at one end of the building.
The neighbouring Unit Four is approximately 115m-long x 85m-wide and is a twin-span portal frame warehouse, with a 12.5m clear height to the underside of the haunch. This structure will be an 8,800m² single storey in-flight meal manufacturing warehouse including an integral three-storey 700m² office area and plant deck.
