B&Q - Worksop

B&Q Logistics Warehouse - Worksop

B&Q is the leading home improvement and garden centre retailer in Europe and the third largest in the world. The company has 350 stores in the UK and nine in Ireland. Its largest store is the recently-opened outlet in Beijing.

The brief
Jet Environmental was awarded the contract to provide a frost protection and ventilation solution at B&Q’s 91,364 m² logistics warehouse in Worksop. We worked with M&E contractor, Briggs and Forrester, main contractor, Bowmer & Kirkland and consultant, Hoare Lea.

The solution
We engineered seven balanced Jet Environmental systems to provide the required frost protection and ventilation for this new warehouse. We also developed a system to ensure summertime temperatures do not exceed 35°C within the low bay and high bay areas. We fitted a smoke dispersal system into the solution. The AHUs for both high and low bays were externally mounted and fitted with balanced flue heat exchangers.

Specific requirements:

  • densely racked 27m high bay
  • smoke dispersal system
  • external AHUs with balanced flue heat exchangers in high bay
  • internal AHUs in low bay
