Initial City Link Darlaston West Midlands

Having been appointed by Rentokil Group as development managers and construction advisors to source a site in the Midlands areas for a new bespoke national distribution centre, we acquired and remediated a 15 acre site in Darlaston, in close proximity to the M5/M6 interchange.

The project involved detailed work with the client to develop their bespoke specification to meet operational requirmeents, including review of best practice across comparable facilites around Europe.  For example, the building has a total of 74 dock loading doors on all 4 sides and we utilised an uninsulated cladding system which brought forward considerable cost savings as compared to the client’s original specification.
