JPG has been appointed to advise on the next development stage of approximately 117,000 sq ft of business and manufacturing floor space at the site branded “R-evolution@ the AMP” in Rotherham.
JPG is consulting on the first two units comprising 30,000 sq ft and 22,000 sq ft which will be of steel frame construction with concrete flooring suitable for manufacturing use.
As well as the structural elements JPG are providing expertise on land issues as the site is reclaimed from backfilled opencast coal workings. The site needs specific attention to the foundations solution since historically it was backfilled to a depth of 50 metres and the long term settlement effects need to be assessed.
JPG are also advising on adopted highways and drainage to support the longer term development of the site.
