Pharmaceutical Distribution Warehouse in Runcorn

Client - The Phoenix Group

Overview:

The Phoenix Group is one of the top five medical wholesalers in the world, with revenues in excess of €24bn. It owns pharmacies around Europe, offers pharma services and is a major international distributor.

The organisation required the updating of one of its major warehouse buildings, in Preston Brook, Runcorn. The issue was capacity – as the group becomes ever more successful so it needs to expand its operation. In this instance the client wanted to add a new mezzanine floor and specialist conveyor to the site, changing the profile of the designed smoke control protocols.

Outcome:

Adexsi UK was appointed to work with Andrew Design Services and Linc Conveyors to devise a smoke control system that was suitable for the new layout. The designed solution involved the supply and installation of 66 bespoke Adexsi Certilam smoke louvres, all certified to BSEN12101-2. These vents can also be used for natural ventilation to ensure a healthy and comfortable environment for staff at the warehouse.

To govern the open/closed status of the louvred vents, Adexsi UK also installed an ADX121 Control System pre-programmed with appropriate protocols – all certified to BSEN12101-10.
