This project was negotiated following R G Carter’s performance on delivering Urban & Civics (John Adams Toy’s project managers and Alconbury Wealds developers) new headquarters building ‘The Club’ at Alconbury which was completed in 2016.
The centre includes facilities for prototyping new toys, model making and packaging development, together with a demonstration area to show products to customers. The facility also includes offices over two storeys, a 10,000sqm warehouse area with 6 mini loading docks and a 50 space carpark and concrete yard. The building is a steel frame construction, using five varying types of Kingspan cladding, feature brise soleil to the front of the facility and two balconies.
R G Carter were involved at the very outset from the buildings initial concept on plan. We attended several design development meetings supported where necessary by our supply chain members including a structural steelwork and cladding specialist to develop the options available for the main structure and external wall finishes to both the office and warehouse areas.
Tony Shepherd, Project Manager said; “Working with both Urban & Civic and R G Carter over the last year has been an exceptional experience which Mike (Our Chairman), Simon (Our MD) and I have thoroughly enjoyed. Everyone’s commitment in delivering our new warehouse and head office building to a high standard has been a joy to watch.”
