Client:Goodman Sector:Logistics Services:Civil Engineering, Structural Engineering Link Design Lead:Nick Moore, Mark Brock

Goodman instructed Link on the development of a new 400,000sqft Amazon Fulfilment Centre. Our engineers were required to work on a short time scale to overlap of construction procurement with design activity onsite which included varying ground conditions.

We utilised our expertise to overcome significant planning and drainage issues as well as working within Amazon layout constraints.

Working closely with Goodman, Amazon and Winvic Construction, we developed appropriate civil and structural engineering solutions to engineering challenges relating earthworks, foundations, floor, structure, drainage, roadways and yard.

Link’s solutions included:

  • Planning issues requiring a two phase approach allowing limited enabling to proceed ahead of the building construction.
  • Different foundation solutions on varying strata were employed.
  • The site included a bus terminal, roundabout, secure link bridge from car parking to the main building
  • Substantial retaining walls to a boundary with a manufacturing neighbour

Following completion of the development our team were involved in agreeing the technical detail concerned with Landlord Tenant License to Alter works.
