System Logistics SPA (SL client Nestle Waters UK)
Project Management / Employer’s Agent / Cost Consultancy
The partnership between Projex and System Logistics/Krones continues to grow following instruction to deliver the civils package for System Logistics automated clad rack high bay warehouse on behalf of the end user, global food and drinks manufacturer Nestle Waters.
Projex have managed the tender process from concept design with System Logistics and Nestle Waters to the Construction Stage with works currently progressing on site. The works consist of a 150,000sqft industrial clad-rack unit with supporting areas including a logistics office and MHE area.
The works comprised of significant cut and fill, ground improvement works in a difficult Buxton micro-climate with a high-water table and planning height restrictions. This required the warehouse to be sunk into the limestone sub strata to achieve an acceptable building height. The design took the opportunity to salvage the excavated rock for reuse under the buildings, roads and hardstandings. Works also had to ensure Nestle Waters operations were not interrupted throughout the construction process.
