Plot 3 Aviation Park, Bournemouth

New Industrial Unit by Bournemouth Airport

Mildren recently undertook design, procurement and construction of a new commercial unit adjacent to Bournemouth Airport comprising mezzanine level office and warehouse space.

Initially we carried out highways works narrowing the local road layout and creating a 3m footpath. We formed new entrances into existing properties, installed a new traffic island and managed the white lining.

The new unit is sited on strip and pad foundations. We mass-poured concrete with mesh on top of the piles using vibro piling.

The building is portal frame construction with built up cladding, curtain walling and roof with toughened sun-reflective glass. It is heated with air source heat pumps which circulate the air along with an air conditioning system for cooling. Throughout there are automatic doors and kitchenettes compliant with DDA guidelines.

The first floor mezzanine level has an open plan office with a plant deck left open for future development, as is the ground floor undercroft. The whole construction is equipped with future-proofed elements such as further soil pipes and electrics, which have been capped off until they are required at a later date.

External Works
Externally we laid concrete, tarmac and block paving along with a landscaped area. Swale was planted including trees and shrubbery, and we installed a hedgehog habitat / insect hotel.

Thank you for completing Plot 3 to such a high level of finish and robustness. We would have no reservation in recommending Mildren Construction Ltd for future construction projects. The professional attitude to help solve problems and see the bigger picture has delivered this building to very high standard. We have to congratulate the full build and finishing team in delivering such a precise execution. Mildren Construction Ltd acted professionally throughout even when faced with the normal ‘un-expected’ difficulties of building next to a difficult World War 2 aerodrome site, and unprecedented economic hiccups.

We look to continue this relationship and build future buildings with Mildren – Well done all.
