Contractor named for Excellent Basingstoke logistics scheme
Wrenbridge and Bridges Fund Management, backed by GLP, have appointed Glencar Construction to deliver a logistics scheme in Basingstoke.
The 19,400m2 scheme, which will be named G-Park Basingstoke, will be built to the highest sustainability specifications, targeting an EPC A+ and BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating, together with a ‘Net Zero Target Build’. It is expected to be available for occupation early in 2024.
The site, on Priestley Road, is part of the established Houndmills Industrial Area, which is home to major occupiers including Sainsburys, Royal Mail, XPO Logistics, Leverton Clarke and GAME.
Glencar is demolishing the existing office building, which was previously owned by pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly, while also undertaking site clearance and enabling works. Steelwork erection is expected to begin by the end of May this year.
Glencar Managing Director, London and South, Roy Jones said: “We are very happy to once again be working for Wrenbridge and its partners on this impressive new modern logistics development.
“The development will provide a best-in-class working environment with a number of highly sustainable initiatives built in to align with the needs of a modern occupier. We are targeting a BREEAM ‘Excellent scheme’ with Net Zero Target Build.”
Henry Pepper, Partner of Bridges Fund Management, commented: “Across the Bridges platform, we’re developing some of the UK’s most sustainable industrial buildings. We intend this site in Basingstoke to be another great example of that, and we’re looking forward to working with Glencar to make these plans a reality.”
