Plans in for 58,000 sq ft Preston warehouse
Manufacturer Wyder Timber wants to relocate from its existing premises to the new facility at Roman Way Industrial Estate.
AEL Projects would deliver the 58,000 sq ft manufacturing facility on behalf of Wyder Timber, which is involved in the production of roof trusses. The company requires an efficient workplace where materials can be delivered, processed, produced, and redistributed..
Designed by RPS Design Group, the scheme would see Wyder relocate from its existing Preston warehouse, a 10-minute drive away off Cummeragh Lane, in order to meet the demands of its operations.
The single-storey facility would provide a small-scale mezzanine level to provide staff with a 2,200 sq ft open-plan office and 344 sq ft conference room.
There would be 50 car parking spaces provided, including three disabled bays, as well as two motorcycle spaces and 12 cycle stands.
Most recently used for open-air storage, the three-acre site is accessed off Roman Road.
Cassidy + Ashton is the scheme’s planning consultant. Also on the project team are Bowland Tree Consultancy, PSA Design, Envirotech, and Reford Consulting Engineers.
