Project Overview

Project Management and QS in the Construction of a new 150,000 sq ft combined Warehouse, HQ Offices and Retail Superstore. Contract value £6.5 million.

Solution

As part of the Kiddicare expansion and online retail business, Kiddicare procured a new HQ in Cygnet Park, Hampton, Peterborough, which served as a warehouse, offices and showrooms over three floors. Arbicon had assisted Kiddicare with problems on its previous building in Werrington and were engaged to ensure there were no problems with the new one in Hampton. Arbicon were engaged to develop the contract, negotiate terms and prices and procure a signed deal that fully protected the interests of the Client. Arbicon were then engaged in dealing with the construction and delivery of the building, contract management and cost control of the works to completion. The primary building was a fairly straightforward concrete, steel and cladding structure with external works, but it also involved major mechanical and electrical engineering to meet the demands and scale of warehouse, showrooms and offices which house extensive IT equipment for a major online retail business. All of which was delivered by Arbicon for the Client without issue.
