Construction company secures new contract

West Midlands-based construction company mac-group has been appointed to build a speculative development of 11 industrial units in Rowley Regis in a £4.25 million deal.

As main contractor for the WD.BOXHUB-Rowley Regis, in Cakemore Road, it will deliver the units and associated office space, totalling 56,388 sq ft, for Solihull-based Warmflame Developments Ltd.

Groundworks have already begun on site, which includes lime stabilisation to reduce the export and import of materials to site, storm attenuation and offsite drainage connections.

This will be followed by the construction of the steel frame units, each of which will have a roller shutter door for vehicle access. The units will be clad with a mixture of horizontal and vertical elements, while feature projections will be added to the entrances and around the windows, as well as feature glass canopies over the entrances.

Internally the floors will be finished to FM2 standard, making them suitable for wide-aisle racking or stacking over eight  metres in height, and there will also be mezzanine areas for storage and potential office space. Each unit will have toilets blocks and kitchen units too.

Works will also include HGV access provisions, 77 car parking spaces and external landscaping areas.

Ray O’Sullivan, director of the mac-group based in the Solihull office, said: “With the challenges we’ve all experienced these past few months, it is great to get started on this development, which will bring much-needed investment into the Black Country, as well as jobs. This is our first appointment with Warmflame Developments and we’re looking forward to building a relationship with the team.”

David Burns, construction director at Warmflame Developments, said: “We’re delighted to have brought mac-group on board to deliver the WD.BOXHUB- Rowley Regis speculative development, which will provide a high-quality industrial scheme in the Black Country.

“With excellent transport links, a strong occupier base, local skilled workforce and record levels of investment being poured into the area, Rowley Regis is a prime location for a WD.BOXHUB development.”

mac-group anticipates a completion date of March 2021.
