Distribution, Warehouse, Office & Retail Accommodation, Nottinghamshire


RPS provided design services for a new build, three-story, 575,000ft2 facility on a site with extremely complex ground conditions.

Although remediated, the c.62 acre site required specific attention to avoid lift shafts, mineworkings and methane drift whilst still delivering a facility optimised to meet our client’s needs.

The single storey warehouse has mezzanines above the dock elevation with an office mezzanine above the other dock face. The main office accommodation has meeting rooms, a restaurant on the ground and 1st floor with additional Pod offices over three floors and a roof terrace.

Externally, cladding was installed on all elevations, curtain walling and perforated aluminium mesh around stair towers, brise soleil around the office elevations and steel feature fins on the roof overhanging the feature structural columns that provide support, resulting in an architecturally striking facility.

A fuelling, vehicle wash and truck maintenance area was also provided as was a Helipad.

This was phase one of two and supports Sportsworld’s expansion plans. RPS has been involved in subsequent phases.
