National portfolio of nine cold store logistics properties:
CS2 undertook a portfolio of re-instatement cost assessments for specialist cold storage warehouse units at an average size of 100,000ft2. Each property was completely individual and incorporated specialist forms of construction, specific to cold storage. CS2 was required to inspect and produce reports within two weeks of instruction. This deadline was successfully met.
CS2 acted for Blum to procure both of their warehouses in Milton Keynes and subsequently extended both buildings. CS2 obtained planning permission for the latest phase. The new warehouse extends 20m above ground level and 3.5m below and involved the construction of large retaining structures to form the basement level. The works enclosed a fully automated racking system picking from both full pallets and small trays. CS2 coordinated the ground investigation report, topographical survey and the design work by the architects and engineers. CS2 successfully tendered the work and managed the project through to completion. Through strong management of each phase of this complex project, CS2 ensured that the work proceeded without any major problems being encountered. CS2 acted as the link between the client and the contractor in order that all queries were managed efficiently.
