I was just searching for an old thread and noticed your comment. Thank you for the kind word's TWOFOOT.

I just wanted to add how much I’ve enjoyed this thread as well. I’ve an interest in architecture as well which made it a doubly good read. Is there anything more in the pipeline regarding your research on the sites?

I was researching as much of the distribution network as possible including a couple of other warehouses they had. The one in Thurmaston has now gone and is replaced with several buildings including a Costco. The Glenfield site is only 3 miles away from me.
Unfortunately a few things changed in my life and I put the research to one side.
