Churngold acted as Principle Contractor for Forestcrest Developments to build a 60,000 sqft warehouse. The warehouse is to be used as a parcel sorting and distribution depot for DPD.

The site was situated near a live railway and had a live high pressure trunk main running through the center and there was also live high voltage overhead cable passing over the site.
