A civil engineering firm ha sposted photos of the progression of one of its airport infrastructure projects: the East Midlands Gateway.

Winvic were contracted by Roxhill Developments and SEGRO Plc to build a highways infrastructure and undertake extensive earthworks in the fulfilment of Contracts One and Two for the rail freight terminal and distribution park adjacent to East Midlands Airport.

Innovative engineering solutions, and an increasing use of digital systems, have been crucial in overcoming the project’s complex challenges, while the involvement of many interfaces have made our collaborative approach an essential commodity.

The first two contracts provide the basis from which further stages of the scheme will establish an SRFI by 2019, one linking road and rail networks, providing one of the country’s largest logistics centres, and improving the highways in the area.

As Principal Contractor for the initial phases of a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP), we have demonstrated our capacity to deliver Civils & Infrastructure on this scale, which is of huge importance to the country’s economic growth.

With infrastructure works ongoing, Winvic has recently commenced works on the first four development plots of the 6 million sq ft of logistics space:

  • Plot 1 – 1.5m sq ft fulfilment centre
  • Plot 2 – 600,000 sq ft distribution centre including 35m high bay facility
  • Plot 3 – 500,000 sq ft distribution centre
  • Plot 4 – 120,000 sq ft distribution centre
