Glencar Construction has completed the fit out of a 525,600 sq ft warehouse at Haydock occupied by Kellogg Company. Works were carried out while the facility was live and included the installation of racking, duct work, sprinklers and lighting to the main distribution facility as well as the creation of office space. The project was completed on time and on budget despite the COVID 19 pandemic.
The 91-acre site, developed by Bericote Properties Ltd with funding from US investor Hillwood, is the company’s biggest distribution facility in the UK.
Roger Nesti, Director International Real Estate at Kellogg Company, commented, “I wanted to personally thank you for the effort in getting this project completed on schedule and being flexible working with us to support our distribution transition efforts. In normal times, this would have been a great accomplishment; during these unprecedented times, truly extraordinary. Please pass on our gratitude to other members of your team.”
Lee Pettit of Bericote Properties commented: “Glencar were selected to undertake the £5m fit-out contract for Kellogg in the Hillwood 525,600 sq ft unit at St Helens with Bericote acting as development manager.
“With a carefully selected supply chain Glencar managed the whole project in a very pro-active manner, overcoming the challenges of COVID 19 and still finishing on time within the budget; all this coupled with Kellogg bringing stock into the building as phases were handed-over. All parties are delighted with the outcome.”
