Contractor named for Peterborough logistics hub
Glencar Construction has been appointed by real estate investor and developer, Firethorn Trust to build three distribution centres on a 21-acre site in Peterborough.
Known as Kingston Park and close to the A1(M) at Junction 17, the development will create around 46,500m2 of logistics space and is expected to be complete by late 2022.
The scheme is targeting a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating, with numerous sustainable infrastructure features such as photovoltaic panels as standard, 48 electric vehicle charging points, and extensive roof lighting.
Paul Martin, Development Director at Firethorn Trust, said: “We were impressed by Glencar’s considerable track record in delivering high-quality facilities of this nature, and look forward to working closely with the team to bring our vision for Peterborough to life.
“This highly-specified, net-zero carbon development has been designed to continue driving investment and employment opportunities within what has become one of the UK’s fastest growing regions. We are now in prime position to bring the scheme forward at pace, as we look to quickly meet increasing occupier demand for quality, sustainable and flexible logistics spaces.”
