Work has been completed on a £4.3m precision engineering facility for Slack & Parr at Kegworth in North West Leicestershire.
BSP Consulting was the civil and structural engineer on the 5,300m² project, designed by Staniforth Architects, project managed by Benchmark Property and built by Warwick Burt Construction.
Slack & Parr is a market leader in high precision engineering – designing and manufacturing the most advanced precision gear metering pumps, industrial dosing pumps and hydraulics flow divider solutions.
BSP’s role in the new manufacturing HQ facility included design of the foundations, the concrete service yard, the car parking area and the foul and surface water drainage to connect into the wider site, where housing is being built.
Both a 3 span standard portal frame structure and a 3 span “hit and miss” portal frame structure were considered. The former offers a slightly lighter overall structure, the latter offers more clear internal factory floor space. The client chose the latter option as the design solution to maximise the floor space.
BSP Consulting integrated with the team at regular design team meetings and attended regular co-ordination sessions with the Architect and other sub-contracted designers to ensure the project is a success.
