UMC Architects were engaged by CBRE and KAM Projects Consultants Ltd, to prepare the design of a bespoke logistics facility, located at Stratton Business Park, Biggleswade for fast growing multi-channel women’s fashion brand Apricot Clothing.   The 95,000sqft facility is intended to support the future growth of the company who have 13 standalone stores as well as 400 concessions across the UK and Ireland.


UMC were the Project Architect charged with undertaking the original plot feasibility study, and the preparation and management of the necessary Reserved Matters application, as well as the drafting of a Detail Design package and the delivery of the scheme once on site.


Our team worked with Glencar Construction during the detailed design stages, with construction work commencing on site in early 2018 with the building handed over within the 9month construction programme on time and within budget.
