Work Starts At National Distribution Centre In Hull

Work is underway at our project in Hull. Ecogise are responsible for installing the following infrastructure on the multimillion pound development:-

  • High voltage supplies
  • Electrical containment & Distribution
  • Generator
  • Fire alarm
  • Intruder alarm
  • CCTV
  • Public address system
  • Lightning protection
  • Access control
  • Lighting & Power
  • Data & Communications

The 20,439m² building will house additional warehouse and logistics capabilities, doubling Arco’s capacity. The extension, which will be linked to the existing building, has been designed to optimise the space available, having a 19m internal height storage capacity and the ability to store around 40, 000 pallets. The new building will have a contemporary aesthetic and will be designed to complement Arco’s current facility, which when opened in 2000 won awards for its innovative design.

The build is part of Arco’s £55 million investment initiative to support its ambitious growth plans and demonstrates its commitment to the local economy as the new centre could potentially create up to 200 new jobs in the Hull area.  Arco’s other investments locally include a £30 million Digital Transformation Project, investment in its Quality Assurance Laboratory, and recently announced its new Customer Engagement Centre, to be opened in July in Hull.
