Storage success boosts business

Storage success

Planning & Design Practice are pleased to announce that planning permission has been secured for the erection of a storage building in Hinckley and Bosworth, Leicestershire. The building will provide additional storage facilities that will help to compliment the existing rural business.

In line with our clients brief the Architectural Team, in collaboration with the Planning Team, prepared a scheme that would sit comfortably within the industrial aesthetic of the storage area whilst also considering the rural surroundings of the site. The scheme took into consideration the potential impact on the character of the area and the dense forestry to the north. These considerations informed the final scheme.

The proposed building contained a vehicle storage area, a roller shutter door acting as the main entrance and a mezzanine, that sought to utilise part of the tall ceiling heights that the unit offered. The building will be steel framed, with a sheet metal roof.

The storage unit will be used to store electrical equipment that is associated with the business. The electronic equipment needs to be stored in a dry, insulated building with the ability to control the moisture content. The existing building on site will continue to provide secure storage for the site, the proposed building will be specifically for technical equipment.
