n recent years industrial construction and refurbishment projects have been a significant area of growth for Martin Evans Construction. We are able to complete these schemes on a traditional contract basis or via a Design and Build procurement route which is often a preferred option for our clients.
Typically projects in this sector range from £100k to £1.5m, and may involve the refurbishment of an existing industrial unit, extension of a production or distribution warehouse or the construction of a new purpose built facility.
Some examples of recent projects are below:
BATH EMPIRE, ATTLEBOROUGH HOUSE, NUNEATON WAREHOUSE
This project involved the refurbishment and reconfiguration of a previous clothing manufacturing warehouse in order to upgrade to a storage and distribution warehouse for bathroom and sanitary wares. This warehouse refurbishment was programmed as a phased handover to meet the client’s requirements.
The 1st phase of the warehouse refurbishment (a 6,000 m2 area) took 7 weeks from mobilization to completion to allow the client to save on storage costs. Phase 2 and 3 were delivered after 6 months as programmed and within budget.
