Quantum Construction awarded us a £900k groundworks package for Matthew Clarke’s regional distribution centre in Bedford, Bedfordshire.

  • Client: Quantum Construction
  • Project: Project Gazelle
  • Location: Bedford
  • Sector: Food
  • Value: £0.9m
  • Contract Duration: 17 weeks

Our works included foundation bases and office slab in the 3000m2 unit, drainage and a 4000m2 concrete yard.

The foundation and slab works to the building were built to a tight schedule in and around steel erection and precast units. We prepared the internal floor slab for the installation by others.

The drainage included shallow gravity and pumped foul and surface water rainwater connections from the building and yard. A 5m deep combined pumping and storage chamber was installed below the water table.

Construction of the yard was ahead of the internal and envelope trades creating a challenge to pour the yard and maintain access to and around the building.
