McLaren to build £30M warehouse and logistics facility at Manchester Airport

November 6, 2019 by NSC in Weekly News
MAG (Manchester Airports Group) has appointed McLaren to build a warehouse and logistics facility on the site of a former WWII aircraft hangar at Manchester Airport’s World Freight Terminal, for global airport services provider dnata.

The airside design-and-build project, which will be known as ‘dnata City North’, incorporates the construction of a 13,470m² facility with an integrated two-storey office space.

Designed by architect RPS, it is claimed dnata’s new facility will set a new quality benchmark for air cargo handling and warehousing.

During the design process virtual reality technology was used to future-proof the building and ensure the scheme satisfies dnata’s future requirements. The facility will include flexible office accommodation, providing an innovative mixture of workspace and meeting facilities, as well as breakout spaces and a fitness suite.

David Murphy, Managing Director – Operations at McLaren, said: “By working closely with MAG Property and dnata at the earliest stage of this project, it became evident that attention to detail and strong management of construction schedules and logistics will be crucial to the success of this project.

“By leveraging our close relationships with our supply chain partners and focusing on MAG’s specific business drivers, we have been able to develop an effective and robust plan for the design and build of dnata’s new logistics warehouse and office space.”
