Bowman Riley was commissioned to develop the designs for the fit-out of an existing distribution centre in Ellesmere Port for Honeywell, a global producer and distributor of electrical components.

Honeywell needed to relocate its distribution facility, which was ageing and spread across two different buildings. Moving into the new site consolidates Honeywell’s operations under one roof for increased efficiency.

The project includes the construction of a new office and meeting room suite within the warehouse building providing a more impressive space to welcome visitors.

Working for Wates Smartspace on a design and build basis, we took the tender design from RIBA Stage 4 to completion. We have been leading the coordination between the other design consultants including the mechanical, electrical and structural engineers.

By making subtle tweaks to the internal layout, we were able to phase the build to allow the IT communications room to be installed first within the office suite. This enabled Honeywell to occupy the building earlier, which was crucial to their operations and running costs.

We re-designed the loading dock and parking area to Honeywell’s specific operating needs, using the existing site levels to our advantage and saving on costly groundworks and civil engineering. We helped coordinate the new warehouse racking layout within the existing buildings structural frame to make the most efficient use of the space and maximise the amount of storage available.
