FP McCann’s ‘L’ Walls form Perimeter Boundary to large shed development in Staffordshire

For DBK Property and Construction Consultancy

2nd December 2016
FP McCann has recently secured a prestigious design, manufacture and installation contract with Northampton based Winvic Construction supplying key precast concrete products, which are part of a huge specification build project at Kingswood Lakeside in Cannock, Staffordshire.
  • Status Completed
  • Location Staffordshire
  • Division Walling
  • Main Contractor Winvic Construction
  • Market Sector Commercial

Working on behalf of client DBK, Winvic are constructing a 380,000 sq ft distribution facility scheduled for completion in Spring 2017. FP McCann successfully tendered in September 2016 for the supply and installation of the perimeter boundary walls, yard retaining walls, dock leveller pits and precast insulated dockwall / prowall units.

Manufactured at the company’s Grantham plant, the site boundary walling has been constructed using a number of FP McCann ‘L’ wall units of varying heights from 1.0m to 3.75m to accommodate the external elevation changes across the site.

Around 265 ‘L’ wall units have been placed on an in-situ concrete base slab, the drilled and dowelled into the slab to secure via the individual toe sections by FP McCann’s installation team. Speed of installation and site security has been key consideration in choosing the ‘L’ wall system. No propping is required which is an added benefit of the ‘L’ wall unit.

Upon completion of the boundary wall, FP McCann’s installation team will fix the dock levellers and some 240 linear metres of dock walls.

Speaking on behalf of FP McCann, Andrew Golisti, contracts manager says, “The Kingswood Lakeside project demonstrates the flexibility the company can now offer on such a large scheme, both in terms of product range and contracting skills. Moving forward, FP McCann will be seeking out similar design, manufacture and install contracts.”
