RJD Associates (North West) Limited have been appointed as the CDM Principal Designer on a new development involving the construction of a warehouse unit. The new unit will have a floor area of approximately 12,000 square feet comprising the main warehouse area with ancillary two-storey offices at the front of the unit.



The scope of works includes constructing a vehicular site entrance from Metcalf Drive, constructing car parking spaces and turning areas, forming hard and soft landscaped areas, constructing foul and surface water drainage systems and installing mains services.


The site is located at Metcalf Drive in Altham and comprises an area of vacant area of land that sits between an industrial unit occupied by C.W. Cartons Limited and a block of industrial units at Venture Court. The site has an area of approximately 0.21 hectares, and is surfaced in a combination of grassland and vegetation with varying ground levels across the site.



Key health and safety considerations on this project include managing the overlap and associated interfaces between the construction site and adjacent industrial units/occupied areas, traffic management, temporary works, groundworks and foundation construction, erecting the structural steel frame with mechanical lifting equipment, restricted working space and preventing unauthorized access to the construction site. RJD look forward to working alongside the project team to ensure a successful delivery of the scheme.
