Ipeco Manufacturing Facility

Written by Joe Dickeson Regional Director and Board Director

Continuing our involvement in developing the Southend Airport Business Park, we were appointed as Design Team Leader and Architects by HBD and Ipeco to deliver a specialist manufacturing facility.

Our brief was to deliver a flagship scheme enabling Ipeco to consolidate and rationalise their manufacturing and administrative activities under one roof, opposed to being spread out over multiple buildings on nearby land.

In-use

As a world leader in the manufacture of aircraft seating, Ipeco’s brief required detailed and individual specification. This included incorporating specialist wastewater treatment facilities and manufacturing equipment as well as 2500m² of office space over 2 floors.

Size was a critical factor in order to provide the required accommodation with the building delivering 11,300m² - enough space to swallow Wembley Stadium’s pitch one and a half times and still have room to spare.
