BWB Consulting is proud to be part of the team delivering the exciting £400 million iPort logistics development in Doncaster. The 700-acre scheme has outline planning consent for up to 6 million sq ft of warehouse space and will incorporate a 35-acre dedicated strategic rail freight terminal. The developers Verdion estimate that iPort will bring up to 5,000 new jobs to the area when fully operational.
BWB has supported the project from its early planning stages and have been appointed by Verdion to provide primary infrastructure, ground improvement and earthworks design. Our range of services has included highways design, surface water and foul water design, hydraulic modelling, flood risk assessment and supervision of onsite infrastructure works.
In addition to civils design for the rail terminal, BWB was also responsible for the drainage, structural and foundation design of the first two warehouse units that were speculatively developed by Verdion. The two units were constructed simultaneously and have now been completed.
