Distribution Centre

Henry Schein Ltd is a worldwide distributor of medical, dentistry and veterinary supplies. When, due to expansion, the company required a new facility at the former Gordon Barracks site in Gillingham, Simons’ experienced team was on hand to make it happen.

After undertaking significant ecological mitigation works, a three metre high timber fence was erected to reduce the impact of construction noise. A steel portal frame, supported on CFA piles was complemented with full height glazing to incorporate a showroom, office and state of the art dental surgery.

With Simons’ flexible approach and planned phasing, the company was also able to begin installing racking and conveyer systems a month prior to the completion date, which provided significant benefits in bringing the new facility into use.
