A large industrial manufacturing facility build
WFEL.

Challenge.

ACS was employed by WFEL to design and build a 5000m2 industrial manufacturing facility for WFEL in Stockport. The facility will play a key role in the UK Ministry of Defence’s Boxer Programme where WFEL LIMITED will manufacture a substantial portion of the British Army’s 500 new Boxer Mechanised Infantry Vehicles (MIVs).

Solution.

The current car park was altered and extended including a revised drainage and attenuation scheme, lighting, H/V services and fire mains. A new security lodge was installed as well as the removal of the existing Spaciotempo buildings and ground floor slabs/service yards and below ground obstructions/basements. Construction of a new access road took place, retaining walls and service yards leading to the new 5000m2 Boxer building facility with a new steel portal frame construction and external cladding and new service yards.

Outcome.

The scheme is progressing well and works are being completed on time.
