UTP are a specialist precision engineering business producing high end components for the aerospace industry. When they wanted to relocate their operation from a number of buildings in Fareham to centralise in one large, purpose designed and built unit in Lee on the Solent Amiri Construction were delighted to be selected to carry out the works. The 3,000m2 building is predominantly single storey, containing the production and operations space and with mezzanine areas to the airfi­eld elevation in order to provide office and welfare space. The site was a former Naval Air Station and required us to complete an ordnance survey to ensure that unexploded bombs had been cleared before carrying out significant ground improvement works before commencing the foundation and slab works. The building is heated by a ground source heat pump serving an underfoor heating matrix.
