QiOptiq Warehouse

£1.6m NEC 3 Design and Build project for the construction of a new stand alone warehouse and office facility for Welsh Government.

Contract:   NEC 3 Option A D&B
Value:          £1,700,000
Duration:   27 Weeks


LOCAL INVESTMENT - A key component of the tender and project delivery process, was the commitment to local investment and engagement. Read are committed to local investment and removal of barriers to local SME engagement. KPI outputs include:

    -   93 weeks of training

    -   81% spend within Wales

    -  £1.4m spent locally

FLEXIBLE & SUPPORTIVE - When a locally appointed subcontractor experienced issues with material sourcing due to a manufacturer credit limit, Read stepped in and took over the material supply element for the subcontractor. This prevented the need to engage a larger non local subcontractor to carry out the supply and install package. Read work with our supply chain, recognising the importance of supporting local SME organisations with whom we have grown over the past 30+ years..

QUALITY - The warehouse floor, whilst appearing simple, was specified with extremely tight tolerances to accommodate the height and sensitivity of the end users storage racking. Local suppliers were vetted extensively to ensure the quality output met the required standard, which was achieved 'Right First Time' through strict quality control.
