Site Refurbishment for Triple 1, Long Buckby

Nene Group acquired the 130,000 sqft, 10-acre site in September of 2019 and immediately got to work. The site, previously owned and occupied by Andrews Maclaren Ltd, was split up to create six standalone buildings which were fully refurbished and let out in quick succession.

The largest of the six buildings was a 74,000 sqft office & warehouse block riddled with asbestos, a 50+ year old roof and had seen better days. Similarly to the rest of the site, Nene underwent major refurbishment works, requiring the demolition to 30,000 sqft of offices to form a spacious yard area to the warehouse sat behind it.

The warehouse had the asbestos roof and cladding completely removed and replaced with new composite panels, a new electrical installation, a newly finished floor painted to the clients request along with a new block of toilets, offices and a canteen area for their staff were fitted to finish off the project.

The site is now handed over to Triple 1 as they have begun manufacturing.
