Market Weighton

Whittaker and Watt Architects were proud to be appointed by Montracon to Design and project manage the construction of their new refrigerated lorry body manufacturing factory in Market Weighton, Yorkshire. A large open span steel portal frame building was designed to house a bespoke manufacturing production line.

The building structure was designed to support the installation of an internal crane to assist as an integral part of the automated assembly line process. Lorry chassis arrived at the factory and as they flowed through the assembly process exited as a fully assembled and operational refrigerated lorry trailers. The building and processes within is highly acknowledged as a state of the art facility for lorry body manufacturing within the United Kingdom.

Client: Montracon Project Cost: £1,600,000
