KAM supported DHL on their new 700,000 sq ft warehouse development site at SEGRO East Midlands Gateway, as part of their partnership with Mars UK. The new temperature-controlled facility included a high bay with a 33m haunch height, which was filled with automation including cranes, racking, pallet elevators and conveyor systems. The rest of the building with an 18m haunch height included a two-level structural mezzanine. 

During the development of the automation design, KAM’s role included managing the interface with the developer’s base build. A key part of this was close coordination with the developer’s team throughout.

In addition to this, KAM led the team on the development of all the other fit out packages. Due to programme requirements, these were negotiated with the developer, who then delivered as part of their base build works.
