The new 778,000sq.ft distribution hub for Euro Car Parts is a strategically important project, which will serve as the company’s new UK fulfilment hub, on the established Birch Coppice Business Park, near Tamworth. After being appointed by IM Properties, UMC worked as part of the team to secure planning consent in late 2014. As lead consultant, UMC then delivered detailed design for Winvic Construction on the base-build and fit-out of the new facility. At 18m clear internally, the building accommodates a highly complex automation solution, with multiple picking levels and a large mezzanine area to two sides. UMC worked closely with the specialist automation consultants to co-ordinate the base-build & fit-out interfaces. The building also has substantial office facilities totalling over 60,000sq.ft.
Euro Car Parts’ moto is ‘Any Part For Any Car’, which indicates the variety of component size range that the new facility will accommodate as their business continues to expand.
