DEFRA – The New Stores Building
Procured using the NEC form of contract on a two-stage design and build basis, the scheme involved the construction of new stores building on the Veterinary Laboratories Agency site at Weybridge. It incorporates a sheet metal roof with an integral waterfall on to the front of the building to channel the rainwater into the harvesting system. Internally, storage includes freezers, chemical and secure areas along with racking and a high bay pallet area. Externally, a new concrete road area and gas store have been constructed and landscaping undertaken.
The project achieved an Excellent BREEAM rating of 83.76% and was the winner of the National BREEAM Industrial Award 2010.
