PROJECT
BRIEF

Develop new Travis Perkins warehousing, storage yard and customer facing trade counter facility on a brownfield site. 

PROJECT
INFORMATION

  • LocationWorthing, Sussex 
  • SectorIndustrial and logistics 
  • ClientTravis Perkins 

warehouse, storage and trade counter designed and developed near a residential area.

CHALLENGES

Due to the prominent town centre location, the local planning authority required an aesthetically appealing development that would happily sit alongside its residential neighbours 

SOLUTIONS

Timber cladding and smooth dark grey cladding disguised the industrial steel frame, thereby creating an attractive shop frontage and positive impact on the street scene. The rear eaves of the building were lowered, and the property was screened with trees to minimise its impact on neighbouring houses and gardens.  

Master planning identified the necessity of a one-way traffic flow through the site to ensure customer and staff safety and efficient use of the yard 

The finished design solution was cost effective, high-quality and an attractive commercial solution for the urban environment.
