Following the construction of the 790,000ft2 facility in September 2018, the specialist fit out contract is currently one of the UK’s largest busbar projects and will feed the centre’s state-of-the-art automated mechanical handling equipment.

Plot 520 will be an omnichannel distribution centre, capable of receiving, processing and dispatching goods ordered from retail units in London, the South and South-West.

As part of the specialist fit out, our team is also in the process of installing:

  • 60km of sprinkler pipework
  • 33km of lighting trunking
  • 19km of electrical containment
  • 14,000 LED light fittings

Matt Goodier, project manager for VolkerFitzpatrick, said: “I am delighted that we have been able to take on the challenge of completing such a large and complex busbar project, as part of our work at Plot 520. The team has collaborated closely with stakeholders throughout, to ensure a high-quality delivery.”
