Construction of a new storage and distribution building for TROX UK has been completed.

The 20,000 sq ft warehouse and undercroft car park, designed by Rees Pryer Architects and built by Mixbrow Construction, has a canopy linking the new building with the existing facility has taken 34 weeks to complete.
Darren Webb, MD of Mixbrow, said: “We knew the design would be more complex than your usual building project due to having an undercroft car park which was something we suggested as an alternative option to the original plan. The intention was to create 42 bays under the new warehouse, freeing up the space that was provisionally allocated for parking elsewhere on the site.”

TROX UK manufactures and sells air conditioning and ventilation systems and components. Based in Thetford, Norfolk, since 1971, around 150 people work from the site. The new building will enable the further expansion of the site as part of TROX UK’s long-term business plan.

Suzanne Archer, MD (finance & operations) for TROX UK, said: “This multi-million-pound project is seen as an investment by our parent company TROX and a vote of confidence in the business. The new facilities will reduce our carbon footprint, improve our customer service and reduce our ongoing costs.’’
