Mulberry Factory

The new £7.5m factory in Bridgwater is estimated to double Mulberry's capacity in the UK and create 300 jobs.

Clarkebond has been involved in the project since the earliest stages, providing pre-planning advice on traffic, geotechnical site investigations and liaison with Network Rail regarding the adjacent railway line, followed by full civil and structural engineering design.

The new facility, designed by architects Colwyn Foulkes, has been built on a greenfield site subject to the difficult ground conditions associated with the soft alluvial soils and peat, to a depth of 20 metres, which are a feature of the Somerset Levels.
