Winvic Construction Ltd has been appointed by Goodman to deliver a 117,500 sq ft state-of-the-art warehouse in Andover for Berry Bros & Rudd, with a ground-breaking ceremony that was held at the end of July.
Winvic is designing the industrial unit to be carbon neutral utilising BIM Level 2. The building will be set to generate its own energy supply, will operate with rainwater harvesting, and will have electric vehicle charging points. The single-storey warehouse, located at Andover Business Park, will have capacity to store more than 14 million bottles of wine at optimum temperature and in a humidity-controlled environment.
This will be achieved using an enhanced specification rood and wall system which provides a superior building envelope with excellent thermal performance and internal climate control, removing the need for a secondary internal construction. An EPC rating of A+ and BREEAM rating of ‘Very Good’ will be achieved. Winvic will also be fitting out the 2,500 sq ft open plan office space and undertaking the external works, including utility and drainage installation, hardstanding and landscaping works, along with the creation of access roads, pavements and car parking for 27 vehicles.
Winvic’s Director of Industrial, Distribution & Logistics, Danny Nelson, said: “We have a lot of experience with temperature-controlled facilities, so we’re delighted to be working with long-standing client Goodman once again on this cutting-edge fine wine storage warehouse. This project offers us the opportunity to showcase our strong BIM Level 2 skills and digital design resource – as well as expertise in delivering carbon neutral projects – and we are looking forward to delivering this ultra-secure facility in Andover for Berry Bros & Rudd.”
George Glennie, Development Director at Goodman, commented: “With work now under way by our construction partner, Winvic, Goodman is looking forward to welcoming Berry Bros & Rudd to this highly sustainable, state-of-the-art development at Andover Business Park. Set to become the company’s largest fine wine storage facility, a well-located, strategic site was important, combined with quality and flexible space to support its clients’ rising demand.”
The project is set for completion in July 2022.
