Coca-Cola invested £41 million in manufacturing upgrades and facility developments at their site in Sidcup, south-east London, which included construction of a new automated storage and retrieval system (ASRS).
Designed to hold and automatically move 25,000 pallets, the site’s storage capacity has tripled and allows manufactured products to be delivered to customers directly, saving approximately 10,817 road miles by HGV and 3,867 tonnes of CO2 per year.
We provided civil, structural, highway and acoustic consultancy services, helping develop the scheme from feasibility to planning and construction.
The project involved construction of a clad-rack ASRA building, traditional steel-framed 18-dock dispatch building and conveyor link building, together with new service yards, circulation route, and drainage. As the site is adjacent to a river, our team also carried out a flood risk assessment and flood compensation analysis.
