Lanview are delighted to announce the completion of our prestigious project for our repeat client, Linnell Volume LLP, involving the construction of a new, purpose-built industrial unit within the existing Milton Keynes Integra business park site.
The new building (“Unit 9”) sits on the Integra site, located at Linford Wood, and is a steel portal frame building for offices and industrial use with a total floor area of 833m2.
Lanview were responsible for the complete construction of this modern, purpose built steel framed commercial unit. The build had to be sympathetic and complementary to the existing units situated within the Integra Milton Keynes Business Park. The unit includes an impressive 230m2 contemporary open plan mezzanine floor which overlooks the full height industrial space. Lanview collaborated once again with Garnett Netherwood Architects to ensure cutting-edge design when it came to the build.
Special consideration had to be given to the existing ground condition which needed to be stabilised to improve the bearing capacity and settlement characteristics of soil. We investigated several options ensuring that the chosen solution was practical, efficient and cost effective. The adopted solution was Vibro stone columns. This ground improvement technique is a top feed approach which involves adding stone from the surface of the ground, allowing for greater control of the placement and density of the stone columns.
Additional consideration had to be given to the existing drainage capacity of the site to meet planning conditions. Specifically, this was in relation to the surface water drainage system and a design was developed that included the installation of an attenuation tank with designed volume and flow control.
Howard Moss, of Linnell Investments LLP, said of working with Lanview:
“We have worked with Lanview on a number of projects and the resulting build quality on this scheme is excellent, the team was professional from the first meeting to the completion, and have dealt quickly with any minor post completion issues that have arisen, always on the end of the phone to answer queries and a rapid response to emails. The quality of the interior office space is superb, resulting in a high quality finished product, that we have been able to lease very quickly.”
Duncan Castle, Lanview’s Commercial Director says of the project:
“We are delighted that the client is happy with the finished result of this in-depth and prestigious project that has been fantastic to have worked on these past months. It’s always a pleasure to stand back and see the end result of such a high-quality build by our hardworking team at Lanview”
