Sara Marshall Hastings Borough Council, Stuart Paine Project Architect, Lee Vockins Contract Manager at Westridge Construction Ltd, Councillor Peter Chowney of Hastings Borough Council, John Davis Managing Director at BD Foods and Michael Courtnage Principle Building Surveyor Hastings Borough Council.
The new site will provide a new build light industrial commercial warehouse for the clients Hastings Borough Council. The new building will utilise modular portal steel frame construction and be insulated. Further to this the structure will be clad with a profiled steel system.
Stuart Paine explains: “The construction of this light industrial unit has allowed for 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 has received high levels of insulation in the roof and an array of photovoltaic panels to further Hastings Borough Councils low carbon building principles”
The site which was previously home to a car park, is due to be completed later this year.
