The terrace of four units, designed and built for Legal & General, was handed over earlier this year. Working alongside project managers Hollis and contractor Marbank Construction, Cornish took the project from tender through to completion.
The warehouse units range in size from 250m2 (2700sf) to 350m2 (3750sf), with accompanying office accommodation on their first floors. The development fills in the final plot of land on the Lineside Industrial Estate, and its modern contemporary look has a prominent position by the estate entrance. Constraints included the site backing onto railway land, which required Network Rail approvals and careful consideration of their needs throughout design and construction, as well as close regard to the existing operations on the estate.
Taking advantage of its position on the sunny south coast, the building has PV arrays supplying power to the four units, and areas of soft landscaping provide greenery and shielding from surrounding roads.
