Greendale were proud sponsors of the 2016 Bournemouth Air Festival over the weekend which saw the awesome RAF Red Arrows fly in the skies above Bournemouth.

As well as the regular favourites, new performances for 2016 came from the B25Mitchell Bomber, Strike Master and awe-inspiring Swiss Air Force Super Puma Helicopter Display Team.

The annual event is always hugely popular and we were particularly impressed with this amazing photo

You may remember we successfully completed the construction of a pair of large industrial units totalling 12,000 square feet for Stewarts Garden Centres. Units 8 & 9 at The Runway, Christchurch Business Park, are under one building which provides new office space and warehousing for the family owned business which was established in 1742 and boasts two garden centres in Christchurch and Broomhill, as well as Nurseries and a Landscaping business.

The 29 week contract comprised of 6,000 square feet of full height warehousing in unit 9, with unit 8 consisting of high specification offices and lockable storage over two floors totalling 4,845 square feet, and additional warehouse space of 5,000 square feet. The floor slabs to the units were power floated and sealed with epoxy resin coloured coating, with perimeter and dividing walls having a fair faced block inner skin which has been decorated. The end result has created a clean and high quality finish to the warehouse space with access via large automatic roller shutter doors. The high specification office areas in unit 8 comprise of meeting rooms, chill-out space; open plan offices; reception; IT server room; kitchen and welfare facilities. These areas benefit from underfloor heating and air conditioning, as well as a glazed curved partitioning system and integral blinds. Aluminium windows and roof lights to the inner meeting rooms and offices provide an abundance of natural light. The mezzanine floor is served by two stairs and an eight person hydraulic lift. Externally, car parking spaces for 26 plus cars has been created, along with cycle stands. The Kingspan cladding superstructure sits on a blue Staffordshire brick plinth.
