Rodgers Leask help deliver parcels hub

wantspacegotspace.co.uk - Rodgers Leask help deliver parcels hubCivil and structural engineers Rodgers Leask has helped to deliver a new £15 million parcels sorting facility in Staffordshire.

Midlands-based Rodgers Leask worked alongside Opus Land to develop a 138,000 sq ft National Sortation Centre and offices for APC Overnight at Kingswood Lakeside, Cannock.

The new facility, situated adjacent to the M6 Toll road, will act as a central sorting centre for APC Overnight’s 115 depots, more than doubling the capacity of the company’s existing facility near Wolverhampton.

APC Overnight’s decision to move to new premises follows record growth over recent years, culminating in the company posting a £65.76m turnover and a 30% rise in pre-tax profits for the year 2011-2012.

Rodgers Leask has offices in Derby, Birmingham and London. Director Paul Spencer said: “We are proud to have worked on APC’s impressive new hub in Cannock. Our role involved designing the foundations for the buildings and basic superstructure elements such as steel frames, masonry, secondary steel work, roads, yards and the drainage related to these areas. As a former open-cast mining site, it also required a great deal of groundwork.”

APC chief executive Syed Ziaullah said: “The new hub is a major investment in our business and will enable us to grow and meet the increased demand from our customers.”

Rodgers Leask has designed multi-storey steel and concrete framed structures for a variety of clients ranging from multi-million pound manufacturing facilities through to commercial offices, institutional and industrial buildings, residential properties, hotel and leisure centres of varying size and complexity.
