To achieve the clear span and floor area required to store 32,000 pallets, the structure was designed with 4T valley beams to carry rafters which dramatically reduced the amount of columns required.
The building consists of 850 tonnes of structural steelwork and was erected on programme in eight weeks.
This was the very first project manufactured in our brand new production facility, using our state of the art drill to split the rafter haunches and to scribe the profile of the valley beam in to the Rafter connection saddle, all assisting to ensure accurate fabrication.
The new distribution centre was part of an £8.5 million investment for ATL Logistics creating more than 50 new jobs.
“We would like to thank your company, and in particular all the
staff who worked hard to achieve another project completed on
time and to a high standard. We look forward to working with you
in the future.”
