Cold Storage Warehouse
Project title: Cold Storage Warehouse Temperature Control
Time frame: 12 months
Project value: Circa. £6m
Scope: Feasibility, Planning, Design, Project Management
Based in Liverpool, McBurney Refrigeration required an extension to their temperature-controlled cold storage. They called Pearsons for feasibility, project management and design services for their cold storage extension. As the planning approval would be a long process, they needed a design package to tender out to contractors consisting of architectural, mechanical and electrical and structural design.
To achieve maximum time efficiency and get the project to an early stage, we developed a two-stage design and build process. The planning drawings and structural drawings were progressed to an advanced stage, and a risk assessment was conducted of the demanding nature of the logistics site. We then sent this out to contractors through a two-stage tender procurement route to get early design contractor engagement. This allowed us to navigate the best route for the client, avoid site disruptions, and remain both high-quality and cost-effective.
