New Look case study

The Project

Dynamic Systems Ltd (DSL) has completed a contract with high street fashion giant New Look to equip part of its new distribution centre. The state-of-the-art site, at Lymedale in the Midlands, now provides New Look with a more efficient and cost-effective operation.

The complex project required a combination of relevant experience and expertise and DSL was chosen for its ability to provide full Construction Design and Management (CDM) requirements for the complete works as principal contractor.

This role included the design and implementation of the installation as well as managing other contractors. The demanding requirements also included a challenging timescale and the relocation of some of the warehouse equipment from New Look’s previous Doncaster site.

Our approach

The project as a whole comprises an ‘empty tote’ replenishment conveyor system running through the existing and new mezzanine floor structures with additional equipment to suit the new layout, including a new full tote despatch system complete with lift to ground floor.

DSL also provided a multi-tiered pallet live storage and picking structure providing 368 pallets at the pick face, with another 2300 in reserve. Walkways between the pallet live pick faces are also included, with staircases and a fire-protected escape route. A three-tier mezzanine floor structure completes the new warehouse system.

“We’re obviously very pleased to have been awarded this contract and entrusted with creating a new distribution system for New Look,” says Steve Trevorrow of DSL.

“The project demanded efficiency and great attention to detail in order to meet the client’s timescale, but we specialise in bespoke solutions and we were always confident that New Look would be more than happy with the end result”
