Omega, a 226 ha site straddling the M62 near Warrington, is considered to be one of Europe’s most important strategic development sites. It will be a mixed-use development comprising offices, industrial space, leisure facilities and hotel and conference facilities. The development is expected to create over 12,000 jobs for the region with the development planned to take place over the next 25 years.
The site comprises a large part of the former RAF/ USAF Burtonwood Airbase and has two distinct areas, and incorporates five former aircraft hangars that remain from the former airfield use. The site is surrounded by land that is designated for use as statutory green belt which will be precluded from future development.
Hannan Associate’s duties for this project include utilities and MEP contribution to the master planning proposals, utilities infrastructure appraisal, strategy and procurement for the whole of the North and South sites. We provided MEP performance and monitoring duties for the OWL developed buildings including planning submission support, BREEAM assessment, utilities provisions for the tenant developed plots and pre and post exchange tenant liaison for the utilities.
We have also provided shell & core and fit out of distribution centres on Omega North for Brake Brothers, Hermes and Travis Perkins and on Omega South The Hut Group, Plastic Omnium and Dominoes Pizza.
