Amazon Distribution Centres in Ipswich and Chester are now open for business following fast track programmes of development
Ipswich’ s Distribution Centre, approx. 100,000 sqft with first floor offices, built on the site of a former sugar beet factory, became operational at the end of July and will employ almost 200 staff. S+SA Architects Ltd worked with main contractor TSL Ltd, Pinnacle Consulting Engineers Ltd and Lysander on the scheme, which took only sixteen weeks to deliver.
For Chester, we worked alongside ISG and Project Manager, Gleave Partnership Limited. The unit located on the Deeside Airfields site took just 28 weeks to build.
We were delighted to receive the following feedback from Amazon UK’s Development Project Manager:
“Many thanks for the really high quality building that you have delivered for us, the launch has been shared with our internal stakeholders and has been subject to many really positive comments.
We really appreciate the hard work that everyone has put into this and look forward to the next one”.
