Units 1 – 5 Wellesbourne Distribution Park


Project Description

Service Description

Safer Sphere was appointed Client CDM Advisors and Principal Designer Advisors on the construction of 5 steel portal framed distribution warehouses which incorporates a 2-storey office/administration facility at Wellesbourne Distribution Park in Warwick. Safer Sphere supported the client in this dual role and the scope of service included:-

  • Principal Designer Advisor services in line with CDM 2015
  • Assisting with H&S in designs, buildability and programme to reduce risk profiles
  • Assisting the Client in discharging their duties under CDM
  • Pre-Contract reviews with sub-contractors and packages
  • Reviews of high-risk activities and applicable safe systems of work for enabling packages
  • Advising on compliance with organisational operating procedures and minimum standards
  • Overseeing PD and PC compliance in the construction stage

Service Challenges

Whilst the client and design team have led the design with best practice CDM principles, some of the key challenges include: –

  • Working adjacent to a very busy private Airfield, to which we bordered the Airfield Fenceline
  • Working in a very busy distribution park that had upwards of 200+ HGV’s a day.

Units 8 and 13 are planned for development in 2018.
