Pick ‘n’ Pay Western Cape - DC Validation and Re-engineering


LPC were asked to review and validate the design of Pick ‘n Pay’s new Western Cape DC, though under construction at the time, we were required to identify what racking layout and profiles we would employ, identify and comment on any issues we noted and to superimpose a “vanilla” concept onto the site to show what we would have designed based on European best practice. This would then allow a gap analysis to be carried out and the learnings to be available for future new Distribution Centres.

Pick ‘n’ Pay Kwa-Zulu Natal - DC Design ValidationIn

LPC were asked to validate plans for a Kwa-Zulu Natal (KZN) Distribution Centre where a site had been earmarked with a prepared concept design. The brief was to:

• Analyse the design of the KZD Distribution Centre

• Analyse, optimise and sign off the basic design configuration and layouts to be used for the construction and fit-out of the Distribution Centre

• To ensure that the final design is flexible enough to meet changing needs on the business and to be able to adapt to the potential changes and scenarios at minimal capital outlay

• To ensure that the designs allow the Distribution Centre to be institutional in respect of its flexibility to allow the business the opportunity to utilise the building for business change, and to position other supply chain functions within the building.
