Contractor named for Crewe logistics hub

Posted on by in News

Glencar Construction has been awarded a contract by PLP to construct a new 42,400m2 speculative logistics unit at Basford West in Crewe.

The project constitutes the final phase of PLP’s Crewe 460 development with construction work expected to start imminently and completion scheduled for December this year.

The warehouse and logistics facility will feature a 15m clear internal height, a 72m-deep service yard, a three-story external office block offering 2,700m2 of floor space, together with a separately accessed car park with 442 spaces.

PLP said the project will be constructed in accordance with the UK Green Building Council Carbon Net-Zero standard. The design has been developed to minimise embodied carbon during construction. It also includes numerous measures to enable the end occupier to transition easily and affordably to carbon net-zero operation including solar photovoltaics, air source heating and cooling, LED lighting and electric car charging points.

Peter Goodman Glencar Managing Director Midlands and North said: “At Glencar we place great emphasis on long-term customer relationships, and we are delighted to be working with the PLP team again to deliver this high-quality development.”
