  • Category:Commercial, Agricultural
  • Role:Quantity Surveyor
  • Project Value:£1,000,000
  • Brief:The construction of a steel framed, metal clad building and incorporated controlled atmosphere cold store, associated plant and equipment.


The client appointed Optimorph to procure a 34m x 28m galvanised steel framed, metal clad 'shed' and to incorporate 8nr controlled atmosphere cold stores, associated plant, equipment, M&E, external works, hardstandings and surface water drainage for the storage of apples and soft fruit. Constrained by Mother Nature, the timeframes for delivering the facility were immoveable due to it being required ,without fail, for the forthcoming harvest. There was a phased completion of stores with the first four being handed over 2 weeks ahead of Completion as part of an agreed phased handover to enable the client to start loading them with the harvest. The completed project was delivered on time and on budget to a high standard of quality.
