One of the stand out projects for the Warehouse Consultants at Gideon Hillman Consulting (GH) in 2015 was the design and fit-out of the new European e-fulfilment Distribution Centre for Bodybuilding.com; the world’s largest on-line retailer of sports nutrition products including powdered and liquid health supplements and bulking powders for athletes; with an annual turnover in excess on $500M.

GH were engaged by Bodybuilding.com to optimise the facility design and layouts, provide the equipment specification and the procurement of it; ensure construction Health and Safety Compliance (including supplying the Principle Contractor and CDM Coordinator) and site implementation, supplier and build co-ordination and commissioning support.

The facility, capable of processing 14,000 orders per day, includes a pedestrian zone pick operation where orders are picked to tote bins from carton live flow racking with back fill replenishment, and then placed on the conveyor to the packing area. A secondary conveyor takes the packed orders to the goods out despatch area whilst a third conveyor returns the empty totes to the picking area.

From securing a suitable vacant empty premises to despatching the first orders took Bodybuilding.com with the support of the specialist team from Gideon Hillman Consulting only 4 months.
