Plot 7, The Ozone, Junction 37, Howden

Plot 7 is the latest development on the Ozone Business Park at Howden.

JPG were appointed as structural engineers for this 47,000 ft2 portal framed warehouse which includes office accommodation, car parking and a service yard for HGV parking. The unit is configured to suit the incoming tenant who will operate it as a parcel handling depot to service the wider East Yorkshire area.

The structure is founded on shallow reinforced concrete foundations due to the high water table and soft sands forming the sub-soils. The portal frame spans 52m overall and is supported on a line of hit and miss columns on the central ridge line. Both the internal warehouse slab and the external service yard are in concrete and are designed for high frequency vehicle traffic that the parcel delivery operation will generate.
