Construction team returns to complete second phase of large warehousing development

CambridgeHOK’s dedicated construction and civils team have returned to a specialist East Yorkshire commercial storage and display business to complete the second phase of a large warehousing development.

Having initially built a 610 square metres, fully cladded steel portal building and access roads two years ago, our team are once again back at the site of Filstorage in Spaldington, near Howden.

This time, a further 1,220 square metres of extra warehousing space is being built for the expanding business.

A leading UK provider of storage and display equipment which was founded in 1993, Filstorage selected CambridgeHOK following a tender process in 2020, and managing director Paul Taylor says he has been impressed with the knowledge, approach and customer service.

“We have found the construction team at CambridgeHOK a pleasure to work with as they are flexible and realistic and always provide a high level of workmanship,” he said.

“Nothing seems to be too much trouble and they are always willing to go the extra mile.”

Steve Swallow, general manager at CambridgeHOK, says it is rewarding to work on a project with a locally based business, with the overall contract worth more than £1.2million in total across the two build phases.

Work on the second phase started last month, with an old industrial warehouse removed prior to the CambridgeHOK team arriving on site. Since then, concrete flooring has been broken up and a new base re-laid, with piling works starting ahead of work beginning to build the steel outer frame.

“It is always pleasing to return to customers and so it is great to have our team back to fulfil this project for Filstorage.

“The plan was always to return and build a second warehouse after a couple of years, but of course that is always dependent on the first phase being delivered successfully, to plan, budget and timescale, which we did.

“Since first tendering for this contract it has very much been a partnership, as we see ourselves more than just the constructors, but also advisers to customers. We suggested amends and improvements to the original plans which were taken on board”
