Adept were appointed by Marshall Construction to provide Civil & Structural design services for a new manufacturing facility to be utilised by Jaguar and Land Rover.
Adept played an integral role throughout the construction of this 13,000ft² industrial unit and 2000ft² office facility. The super structure took the form of a three bay steel portal frames with internal hit and miss columns. The office upper floor was constructed with steel beams supporting a 130mm thick composite metal deck slab.
Site investigations and close liaison with the local authorities were undertaken to ensure a smooth programme of works.
Lime stabilisation and vibro treatment were identified as economical solutions to deal with difficult ground conditions and actioned. Pad foundations could be utilised, demonstrating Adept’s commitment to the provision of cost effective engineering design.
Adept’s expertise in steel frame design and sustainable urban drainage systems ensured the condensed time scale of this project was adhered to. Surface Water drainage challenges were addressed and solved by Adept’s expert civil engineers.
