The Range, Avonmouth Bristol
Centrum Pile has been awarded its largest ever project to date, the pile supply contract for homeware giant The Range’s new mega-shed distribution centre in Avonmouth, Bristol.
The project, awarded by McLaren Construction on behalf of developer Stoford Properties Limited, commenced late July 2016 and saw Centrum Precast Solutions deliver over 15,000no. Centrum Precast Piles. The majority of piles for the project were 250mm section DPC, with the remainder being 300mm piles, with ground conditions expected to be a significant depth of tidal flat deposits. The piles will be bearing onto Mercian Mudstone, which is typical of the strata suitable for a DPC approach. Speaking about the project, Centrum’s Business Stream Leader Paul Pendleton said:
“This is the largest pile supply contract project that Centrum Pile has ever undertaken in its 25-year history and is a tremendous vote of confidence in our precast piling solutions. It is also our first project for McLaren Construction and given the scope of works it highlights the high degree of trust they have put in us, the result of our previous dealings with them and our industry reputation.”
