The extension is set to double the size of Mawdsleys' existing temperature-controlled storage and distribution facility
Russell WBHO has started work on a £12m industrial build for a pharmaceutical wholesaler and distributor.
The extension is set to double the size of Mawdsleys' existing temperature-controlled storage and distribution facility at Redhouse in Doncaster.
The 152,000 sq ft portal frame warehouse unit will comprise a 146,238 sq ft temperature-controlled chamber, with 12 loading docks to 12.5m to eaves, internal racking with in-rack sprinkler system, and a 4,542 sq ft office space. Russell WBHO will also complete a new external service yard and rear access road at the site off Rockingham Way.
Manchester-based Russell WBHO is responsible for the full construction and fit-out of the building and storage chamber, which will operate at a controlled internal temperature to store supplies to the exacting standards of the Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency (MHRA).
Jonathan Rhodes, Russell WBHO project director, said: "We have commenced work on a major turnkey project for a new client Mawdsleys in Doncaster, a scheme which will double their storage and distribution capacity at the site.
"As temperature-controlled construction specialists, with more than 20 years' experience in the sector, we can offer our clients a collaborative approach to best value, and combine the expertise of longstanding partners and suppliers to deliver a state-of-the-art facility to support their future growth plans."
Mechanical and electrical firm Heatworks will design and install an energy efficient heating, cooling and ventilation system to support two operating systems across the different parts of the building.
The project team also includes project manager Beaumont Lord, architect AEW, structural engineer Booth King, services consultant ESC, health and safety specialist Pure Safety Solutions and environmental consultancy E3P.
