Tate Consulting are providing mechanical, electrical and fire engineering services for two brand new fully automated home shopping centres for Asda, with the first at Heston west London, due for practical completion in April. The Heston home shopping centre, is a 120,000 sq ft facility and will supply fresh, chilled and frozen produce to Asda customers.
Tate Consulting managed the design and coordination of the installation of all mechanical and electrical services, the insulated structure (white wall) and refrigeration and the sprinklers and fire systems. The automation system was supplied by logistics specialists TGW and Tate Consulting worked closely with them, to ensure the successful integration with the building services.
The other home shopping centre at Dartford, Kent is due for practical completion in December.
