BBM were appointed in 2015 to create a new build light industrial commercial warehouse for the clients Hastings Borough Council. The estate dates back to the 1970ʼs when most of the units were built as part of an industrial development for Hastings. The new unit will allow for the current tenant BD Foods to expand their business while remaining a integral part of the Hastings and St Leonard’s economy.
The site of the existing car park has become the footprint for the new light industrial unit with new car parking added to the rear of the existing unit. The unit will utilise modular portal steel frame construction and has received high levels of insulation in the roof. To support Hastings Borough Councils low carbon building principles an array of photovoltaic panels will be installed. Further to this the structure will be clad with a striking blue profiled steel system.
