adi tackles Menzies Distributions flagship Coventry redevelopment

The adi Group has strengthened its credentials in the interior fit-out and distribution markets after securing a major deal with logistics experts Menzies Distribution.

The contract sees the adi Building and Refurbishment business undertake work at Menzies’ largest distribution centre, in Coventry.

The new state-of-the-art 165,000 sq ft media and distribution hub has been designed to be an integral part of Menzies’ UK & Ireland operation.

Serving the firm’s network of 65 regional hubs, adi Building & Refurbishment was brought in to play a key role in the development process, delivering both internal and external work to tight deadlines and quick turnaround times.

Commenting on the project, adi Building & Refurbishment managing director David Beebee said: “It’s a pleasure to be working with Menzies on this development.

“Over the past few months, we’ve been working hard to implement a strategy that would allow Menzies to rapidly expand its distribution base as well as continue operations as normal.

“Thanks to the fast growth of our business and the talent base at our disposal, I’m pleased to say that at all times we’ve been able to execute the programme with the upmost efficiency.”

Winning the Menzies project is partly the result of adi Building & Refurbishment building its brand regionally over the last couple of years, positioning itself to fill the void left by other contractors that have gone out of business or that have been bought by large national construction companies.

More importantly to them, however, it is through delivering previous projects to a very high standard. With a customer satisfaction rating consistently nudging 100%, the business puts a lot of emphasis on understanding clients’ needs and expectations and implementing a plan that meets those needs as an absolute minimum.

David added: “Following on from the exciting work we’ve been doing with other clients on similar buildings, this contract represents another huge feather in the cap of adi Building & Refurbishment.

“Interior fit-out is a key service stream for us now and particularly in the future. We also have significant experience building, refurbishing and fitting out distribution centres and other similar structures and see this as a key area to grow too.”

Fitting out offices, reception areas and the main warehouse, adi has been heavily involved in the Menzies project, engaging with architects, local authorities and planning parties on behalf of the client.

External work has included new barriers, turnstiles and halogen fencing, as Menzies significantly steps up its portfolio of print media haulage in the UK.

“The new distribution hub really formulates part of a wider growth strategy for us,” said Greg Michael, CEO at Menzies Distribution. “We’ve recently taken on new contracts with Frontline Ltd and Seymour Distribution, both of which will see us take their products to over 25,000 retailers.

“In adi Building & Refurbishment, we knew we’d found a contractor that could help us design and deliver the space we needed at what will be our largest distribution centre, as well as meet time critical deadlines.

“This project will drive further improvements in our daily logistical operations for retailers across the UK & Ireland. So far, however, adi has either met or exceeded my expectation in every regard.”

Birmingham-based adi Group is a multi-disciplined construction and engineering firm, with over 30 specialist service sectors meeting the needs of thriving start-ups and national brands across the UK & Republic of Ireland.
