Vitruvius delivers new lorry park at dairy

A new lorry park has now been completed at Cotteswold Dairy's headquarters in Tewkesbury.

The bulk of the dairy's lorry fleet has now been moved to the purpose-built lorry park to free up space for a new development on the main diary site to include a cold store, welfare and office facilities.

The new lorry park, the building of which was project and cost managed by Cheltenham-based Vitruvius, will hold 20 articulated and 17 rigid lorries.

Specialist acoustic fence panelling has been used around the perimeter to reduce noise.

The dairy was initially looking to extend its current buildings and needed a project manager to oversee the construction process.

Vitruvius suggested the dairy first look at master planning the whole site to ensure the dairy's property plans would meet their business objectives for the next five to 20 years.

The site currently comprises a production facility, cold storage, distribution centre, transport, head office and depot functions and has evolved on the same site for more than 45 years.

Vitruvius MD Mark Price (pictured) said: "We could see that bolting on a couple of buildings would not be in the dairy's best interests.

"In a few years they'd need more space and would have no room for growth. By creating the new lorry park, we've freed up the existing parking area for phase one of the new development."
