FP McCann’s precast docking system takes a Staffordshire distribution facility to a new level

Site: Kingswood Lakeside, Cannock, Staffordshire 

Contractor: Winvic Construction 

Client: DBK Property and Construction Consultancy 

Products Supplied: Precast concrete multi-vehicle docking system

FP McCann’s specialist installation team is in the latter stages of completing the build of a multi-vehicle docking system on the huge Winvic Construction site at Kingswood Lakeside, Cannock, Staffordshire. The specification build ‘large shed’ project is due for completion in Spring 2017.


Working on behalf of client DBK, Winvic and partners are constructing the 380,000 ft2 storage/ distribution facility and, following a successful supply and build tendering process, FP McCann is delivering a package of off-site manufactured precast products designed for speedy, efficient and safe installation.

Transported from the company’s Byley facility in Cheshire, dock leveller pits, shed perimeter and yard retaining walls, together with the large dockwall and prowall panels complete with door openings, are being delivered to site on a ‘just- in-time’ delivery schedule. Once on site, the walls and panels are lifted from the vehicles and placed directly into position in one single, safe operation. The fixers then secure the panels to the building’s steel frame.


 The first stage of the project saw FP McCann construct a boundary wall to the site using the popular and flexible ‘L’ Wall earth retaining system. Varying unit heights from 1.0m to 3.75m were installed to accommodate the external elevation changes across the site.

The precast concrete units are a simple and cost-efficient means of installing an earth retaining barrier. In the case of the Tividale scheme, we have clad the exposed element of the wall with a brick finish another benefit of the smooth factory finish.

Brendan Lines, Site Manager, Friel Construction Ltd

The FP McCann technical and commercial teams at Lydney have worked closely with us throughout the programme of delivery and installation of the panels. The robust precast concrete walling system in place will accommodate any changes in  the use of the facility by Peel Ports in the future.

    What is a Stakeholder?

    A stakeholder is a Mircosite that has the power to highlight a product or service, launch a promotion, or promote brand awareness to the construction industry in a way that full websites or more traditional marketing cannot.

    All stakeholders have the ability to have their latest press releases and case studies promoted across the UK Construction Online platform. UK Construction Online is updated daily, with the latest news across all sectors within the construction industry and all stakeholders are promoted on both social media and to a mailing list of over 122,000 subscribers.
