CLUGSTON Construction has been awarded the contract to build a £25 million extension Arco’s National Distribution Centre in Hull.
The Scunthorpe team will add more than 20,000 sq m to the 18-year-old building, which won awards for its innovative design.
Due for completion next summer, it will give the UK’s leading safety group a further 40,000 pallets of storage space.
The design team supporting Arco and Clugston included Alan Wood and Partners from Hull and HBPW Civils.
Steve Radcliffe, managing director at Clugston Construction, said: “Following several months of preparatory work with the designers and planners, we are delighted that the on-site works are now starting, and once again to be working with Arco, for whom we previously built an earlier extension to their National Distribution facility.”
It comes as Clugston’s own commitment to health and safety has seen it receive a highly prized International Safety Award from The British Safety Council. The award is in recognition of its commitment to keeping its workers and workplaces healthy and safe during the 2017 calendar year.
Now in their 60th year, the International Safety Awards recognise and celebrate organisations from around the world which have demonstrated, to the satisfaction of the scheme’s independent judges, their commitment to preventing workplace injuries and work-related ill health during the previous calendar year.
Mike Robinson, chief executive of the British Safety Council, congratulated Clugston on their success and their commitment and efforts to keep their employees and workplaces free of injury and ill health.
