New Plant for Gestamp Successfully Handed Over
UMC Architects are proud to have been involved with the planning, design and delivery of Gastamp’s new West Midlands production facility at Four Ashes, South Staffordshire.
Following the masterplanning of the site, full planning permission for the facility was granted in October 2016. Construction commenced shortly afterwards, with UMC working alongside Readie Construction for the detailed design of the 546,000sq.ft building, consisting of a large production hall, storage warehouse, raw material delivery bays, finished despatch areas and ancillary office space. Externally, there are service yards to two sides of the building and significant external facilities to support the process operation. The first phase fit-out was part of the building contract, including a 30,000sq.ft semi-detached corporate office facility. Handover was achieved within the budget and timescales agreed and Gestamp were able to commence their second phase fit-out and commissioning to suit their programming aspirations.
