Pik-a-Pak, electrical distributors, have awarded Quantum a £630,000 contract to build an extension to their existing building in Ipswich.
The Design & Build project is to construct a portal steel framed building, connected to the existing structure and enveloped in a composite cladding system.
The ground floor footprint of 950m2 will provide a much needed addition to the premises with the space accommodating a combined series of racking and storage units.
The works will be challenged by the limited site available for the building works, which are immediately parallel to a busy thoroughfare. Careful sequential planning of external activities will be required to construct the necessary drainage alterations and retaining wall complete with soft landscaping scheme.
