Hobson & Porter delivered this scheme involving the construction of a new depot for DPD Distribution, on behalf of the Horncastle Group.
Situated on a five-acre plot, the site has parking spaces for 59 vans, five HGV trailers and 60 car parking spaces. The project encountered some unforeseen issues with ground conditions, a challenge met and overcome by Hobson & Porter with no impact upon the programme.
Excess sand had to be removed from site to allow adequate construction of the sub-base and concrete slab.
Hobson & Porter has completed the onshore operations base and warehouses for Dong Energy Power (UK) to service its Westermost Rough wind farm.
The £3.4m contract involved the construction of a new two-storey office building and the refurbishment of an existing warehouse building that provides an on-shore base for the offshore wind farms, situated off the Lincolnshire coast.
It is estimated that 100 employees will be based from the offices in Eastside Road, Grimsby, for the next 25 years,
