Work on a new Ocado customer fulfilment centre in Purfleet starts this week.
The 304,000 square-foot facility at the SEGRO Logistics Park Purfleet, undertaken by Winvic, will include a three-storey car park and offices.
Winvic has worked with SERGO before but it is believed this is its first partnership with Ocado, which will include its robotic packing system at the new warehouse.
Mick Bracken, Winvic’s operations manager on the Ocado unit at SLPP, is quoted by Construction Enquirer as saying: “When we secure a project with a client that we have worked with before – like SEGRO – it gives the team a real boost, as it provides validation that Winvic is delivering incredible work.
“Furthermore, working with a new end-user is substantially motivating as it brings with it an opportunity to forge new relationships, where we can demonstrate our commitment to The Winvic Way and exceeding expectations.
“The project team is looking forward to showing Ocado what it means for a main contractor to be focused on doing the right thing and delivering an ever-improving quality of service and product, responsibly, ethically and safely.”
The site is inside the M25 in Essex, just off the A13.
