DHL Project Nautilus

Delivering the distribution centre of tomorrow, today

The background:

DHL Project Nautilus is a 200,000 ft2 distribution centre providing storage and distribution facilities to customers and clients around the UK. The distribution centre has warehouse racking to locate the stock for clients so that this can be distributed or stored with a 3 storey mezzanine.

Halsall’s main focus was to deliver the Mechanical and Electrical design and installation to accommodate the warehouse area and provide a comfortable and efficient working environment for clients that utilise the inhouse product testing facility.

What we say:

“The complex range of project outcomes combining employee needs, clients area and testing facilities meant we had to work to exacting parameters and deliver fully on each aspect to achieve the deadline”
