A Leeds engineering specialist has landed a ‘major’ contract on a new automotive logistics centre.
Civil and structural engineering firm RWO has been appointed to support the new Rockingham Logistics hub near Corby in the East Midlands.
Comprising storage capacity for 50,000 cars, the 250-acre site will also feature several vehicle maintenance buildings and 40,000 sq. ft of office space and is due for completion in spring 2021.
RWO’s new contract will involve re-evaluating the plans for the vehicle maintenance buildings, as well as preparation of designs and supplying a package of engineering services for the structural infrastructure build programme.
Head of RWO Leeds, Andrew Fairburn, commented: “This is another high-profile project working to create one of the UK’s foremost independent automotive logistics centre.
“It’s great to be involved, reflecting the skills and expertise available in the region to support multi-million pound national investment projects.
“We have a very healthy forward order book and expect to see further national contract success and expansion over the next 12 months.”
Alan Cooper, director at contractor Core Special Projects, added: “We are working in close partnership with the RWO team to develop a successful engineering solution.
“They have the skills and experience to deliver service and quality for this important project, which will benefit so many in the local area.”
