Wincanton LogisticsHigh Bay Automated Distribution Centre and Offices Corby
Built on a former British Steel site at Corby, Henry Mein Partnership's design incorporates an automated high and low bay warehouse and two storey office accommodation totalling almost 250,000sq.ft. There is also provision for a rail link. The high bay warehouse has a fully computerised racking system with eight cranes in operation to serve the double deep 40,000 pallet spaces. The project called for major remodelling of the site, involving the movement of 400,000m³ (800,00 tonnes) of material to form a suitable plateau for construction. The entire scheme was built to Factory Mutual Standards in only 48 weeks.
