Wareing Buildings completes Blackpool commercial development

Kirkham-based steel-frame specialists Wareing Buildings has completed the design and build of a major commercial development in Blackpool.

The site at Cropper Close on Whitehills Business Park in Blackpool consists of two storage and distribution units totalling 20,000 sq ft, constructed on behalf of Henco International.

The first unit, comprising 8,000 sq ft with an additional 2,000 sq ft of mezzanine, 'grade A' air-conditioned office space, has been let to gift and toy designers and distributors Floss & Rock who will take occupancy of the unit later this year.

The second spans 12,000 sq ft, also offering the option of additional mezzanine offices, and has the potential to be split into two separate units covering approximately 5,000 sq ft and 7,000 sq ft. 

Wareing Buildings’ role included site preparation and clearance, implementing concrete foundations and strip footings, the fabrication and erection of the steel frame structure and construction of external cavity brick walls.

The company also added a concrete floor slab with power float finish, roof and wall cladding and composite sheeting and aluminium-framed glazing.
