Following a competitive tender process direct with DHL Express, we were awarded the fit out contract for the new overspill site at Exeter. The fast track 8 week fit out started in January 2018 with the site going live the week following completion, programme was critical with a multitude of trades and specialist long order equipment to consider. Works were completed under a JCT Minor Works Contract 2016 with Contractors Design. Works involved the installation of high speed shutter doors, design and installation of a fume extract system suitable for internal vehicle movements including all associated builders works to block work walls, relocation and overhaul of warehouse heating system, management of the mail handling equipment installation, power, data, access control, CCTV, and fire alarm alterations. Further works included fit out of offices, crew room and meeting room, extensive traffic management / protection works including installation of Armco road barriers and A-safe pedestrian barriers and bollards, and line marking. Externally works included the provision of a smoking shelter, cladding alterations to accommodate louvered grills for the building extract system and a new path way across a brook to link the neighbouring existing DHL site. Works to the approximately 13,000 sq.ft industrial unit were completed successfully within programme and to budget while working extensively with the client’s operations team and their preferred supply chain.
