Warehousing and Distribution

In partnership with GMI Energy, DDA carried out the full construction design for a new warehouse and production facility for Bradford-based P&B Foods Ltd.

In a deal supported by Bradford Council, P&B Foods bought the 12.72 acre site at the Prologis business park next to the M606 motorway and adjacent to the M62 corridor.

P&B Foods Ltd, which distributes a wide range of food products to customers across the UK and Europe, is investing around £5 million into a purpose-built base for the £42 million turnover company.

Work started in late spring on the new centre which will accommodate a warehouse and production centre of 178,000 sqft, providing the company with sufficient space for its next planned phase of expansion.

The design models ambient and chilled storage and features carefully zoned heating systems to accommodate disparate methods of warehouse management. Specialist automated conveyor equipment and battery charging resources provide a cost-effective platform for production.

As a part of the building envelope, the provision and energy efficiency of loading technology, dock levellers and roller shutters, ensures that thermal loss is minimised.

Featuring an extensive aspirating smoke detection solution, the scheme provides the earliest possible warning of any impending fire hazard – crucial when environments are challenging and business continuity is imperative.
