“We have been delighted with the solution that Teepee has delivered in response to our brief for increased warehousing, office and storage space at our new facility in Watford. This has allowed us to effectively meet the current needs of our business whilst providing us with the flexibility to adapt as our operation grows. We can thoroughly recommend their services.”
– Operations Director



The existing office facility (7,316 sq ft or 680m2) required modernising to include an open plan office on the first floor for general sales and administration staff, individual offices for directors and managers, a large reception display area and a training room.

Within the remaining space (9,385 sq ft or 914m2) Contactum needed a pick and pack area to house approx 1,100 SKU’s plus a bulk storage warehouse capable of storing 900 GKN pallet locations.


Teepee removed and re-built office partitions and suspended ceilings within the existing offices, to create open plan office space upstairs, with private offices fitted around the perimeter. Downstairs, a new reception area and training room were created. Teepee then re-decorated and installed new floor coverings throughout, including the installation of new LED lighting, re-positioning all small power and servicing of existing HVAC systems.

Due to the limited space within the warehouse, Teepee’s design team decided to install a 2,851 sq ft (265m2) mezzanine floor, which allowed two offices and one workshop to be housed on the first floor totalling 850 sq ft (79m2). The remaining space enabled assembly benches to be installed.

Underneath the mezzanine floor Teepee created a pick and pack area, which consisted of 6 packing stations and 95 bays of short-span shelving, designed to accommodate 1,140 SKU’s.

Within the remaining space, we installed a warehouse office and a pallet racking system capable of storing 926 No. 1200mm wide x 1000mm deep (GKN) pallet locations, operating in 1950mm wide aisles using an articulated forklift.

We were also asked to install all new electrical and HVAC systems throughout the new assembly and warehouse facility.
