KMG has enjoyed a long-term relationship with Henderson Group and began designing this distribution centre in 2014. Construction began in July 2016 and took a year. The official opening was in September 2017. KMG has previously worked on several projects for the company, including new headquarters offices, which opened at the end of 2015.

“About 100,000 tonnes of goods will pass through the facility each year, which features 8 bespoke loading houses and more than 30 docks for high-speed throughout,” says KMG managing director Kevin McGahan. “The fully sprinklered warehouse has a curved roof formed from 110-m long, site-extruded single sheets that obviate the need for internal drainage. KMG engaged with SPAR International in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, on the logistics of the warehouse design.”
