Steelwork up on St. Modwen’s largest-ever speculative unit

St. Modwen is delivering a 29,500m² warehouse unit in the heart of the Midlands, which it claims is the largest speculative build in the company’s history.

Forming part of a wider 35-acre distribution site known as St. Modwen Park Tamworth, it is strategically located adjacent to Junction 10 of the M42, and said to be ideal for both distribution and manufacturing companies.

The large steel-framed unit will benefit from a 53m-long service yard, a 15m eaves height, solar panels to enable reduced running costs and is aiming to achieve an ‘Excellent’ BREEAM rating.

Meanwhile, the wider site is set to include a landscaped environment with a fitness trail for the wellbeing of future occupiers’ employees.

Gregg Titley, Development Director at St. Modwen, said: “We are growing a significant industrial and logistics business and St. Modwen Park Tamworth is key to driving forward our plans.

“This type of build requires the end-occupier to be at the forefront of our thinking throughout the process and we’re confident that our largest ever speculative build will fulfil their requirements.

The Park will also benefit from the addition of a further 10,900m² of industrial and logistics space after St. Modwen secured planning permission to build a fifth unit on the site from Warwickshire County Council.

Working on behalf of main contractor Winvic, Severfield is fabricating, supplying and erecting the project’s steelwork.
