Webb Gray are delighted to announce the full completion of a brand new 50,000 sqft manufacturing and distribution unit for the Wolseley Company. The unit provides a state of the art home for the Pipe and Climate Center who as part of the Wolseley Company now occupy the building, offering the ideal opportunity to mix fabrication with the trading of parts. The Pipe Center is a leading supplier of specialist heating, pipe and related components whilst the Climate Center is the Uk’s leading supplier of refrigeration equipment, components and ancillaries. The unit caters for all aspects of the company’s logistical and trading day to day operations whilst also provides a building with high aesthetic appeal in keeping with the companies established branding. The unit is ideally placed on Wickham Business Park providing a strategic location with excellent transport links running alongside the A127. The location means the unit is superbly placed for the Wolseley Group to offer both their trading and fabrication services.
The Pipe and Climate Center occupy a site that provided Webb Gray with the perfect opportunity to provide a unit that is robust yet effective in its contemporary design. The intentionally simplistic design of the building sees clean sharp lines, crisp functional detailing, a small range or surface materials and a cleverly assorted pallet of colours which all combine effectively to reduce the perceived mass of the unit. Webb Gray are delighted with the outcome of the new unit and are pleased to have provided the Wolseley Group with a highly diverse building that accommodates all aspects of their business.
