Thomasons Manchester wins major fire restoration project

Neovia Logistics has appointed Thomasons’ Manchester office to lead a project team in the reconstruction of their fire-damaged warehouse in Desford, Leicester.


The original 9,000m² storage and distribution warehouse was completely destroyed by fire in August 2015. Neovia Logistics has commissioned Thomasons as project managers to lead the design team for a new 17,400m² building, complete with integral office facilities. Planning was granted in September 2016, with no major conditions. This was achieved whilst detailed design was undertaken and tendered with construction work planned to commence in early 2017.


Thomasons’ experts will continue to partner with Neovia as project managers and contract administrators throughout the construction phase, to complete the development in a way that minimises the impact on concurrent commercial site operations as far as possible.
