Double-Dock Levellers

A powerful distribution tool with double-deck dock loading doors in every position, at a ratio of one door per 4,500 sq ft saving time, financial and environmental cost to occupiers.

Double-dock doors have a longer leveller and higher door, which provides increased flexibility in the range of trailer bed height, and type of trailer that can be used.

Warehouse Floor Slab

The floor was constructed to an industry-leading standard of workmanship in large pours of 40m × 40m bays with saw-cuts at 6m max spacing, using laser-controlled state-of-the-art construction methods in accordance with 4th Edition of Concrete Society TR34. The armour joint is the most reliable in the market with proven performance.

Internal ground floor joint layout

  • Tied Induced Joint (T.I.J)
  • Armoured Day Joint (A.D.J)

FM2 flatness, reinforced concrete floor slab with load capacity of 80kN/m2 UDL and capable of carrying racking loads up to 130kN. High-grade aggregates were carefully sourced from local quarries and quality control was closely monitored on site by an independent specialist consultant. The end product is a highly durable, flat surface with armoured joints, to provide optimum future performance in a logistics environment.

Solar and Battery
Storage-Ready

PV roof

Cost-effective solar power solutions:

  • Altitude is 100% PV-ready and can accept solar panels across the whole roof
  • PV system size is 3MW with an irradiance of 847.1 kWhr/kWp
  • Annual generation of 2.6GWhrs annually
  • Green electricity, cheaper than the grid
  • Potential to save 1,300,000kg of CO2 per annum
  • The customer can pay for the PVs or we can offer a funded option

Battery storage-ready

The building is battery storage-ready, allowing the building to fully harness solar power. The benefits include:

  • Peak shaving
  • Load shifting
  • Emergency backup
  • Micro-grid at point of use
  • Steady stream of service
  • Increased PV self-sufficiency
  • Reduced energy bills

WELL-Ready

WELL Certification for Core and Shell compliance means that the building is ready for the occupier to achieve full WELL certification, in line with their own operational requirements.

Altitude is registered for Core and Shell assessment and certification for Core and Shell under the WELL Standard. Physical workplace is one of the top three factors affecting performance and job satisfaction, so a WELL Certified project places people at the heart of design, construction, operations and development decisions.

The standard is centered on seven concepts

Air

  • Air quality monitoring is currently in place on site to ensure air quality is of a sufficient standard to avoid detrimental health impacts.
  • Working to ensure ventilation is sufficient to keep internal air quality high.
  • Specifying materials with low VOC content to minimise detrimental health effects.
  • Designing a ‘healthy entrance’ to reduce the introduction of outdoor air pollutants into indoor air.
  • Designing internal lobbies to protect the air quality of staff areas and offices.

Light

  • Designing lighting plans to have sufficient lux levels to undertake all common activities in the ofices.
  • Ensuring glare is controlled to improve visual comfort.

Mind

  • Developing initiatives to raise awareness of health and wellbeing among occupants.
  • Integrating mindful design to positively impact the mood and morale of employees.
  • Incorporate nature into the building design to boost the mood of occupants.

Water

  • Testing water on site to ensure drinking water quality is high.

Nourishment

  • Opportunities for better eating habits and a good food culture are integrated into the building design and policy, including space for mindful eating and safe storage of food.

Comfort

  • Achieving thermal comfort to promote occupant productivity.

Fitness

  • Designing in opportunities for interior fitness, such as prominent staircases.
