Contractor named for speculative Stafford warehouse scheme
Glencar has been appointed by UK logistics and industrial property business PLP to construct a 32,000m2 speculative warehouse at the Stone Business Park in Stafford.
The site situated on Brooms Lane will feature the redevelopment of a redundant and recently vacated data centre into a new, high-specification logistics warehouse that will include over 1,850m2 of office accommodation.
The development will also feature a separately accessed, secure service yard up to 67m deep, 300 car park spaces and the retention and enhancement of the existing landscaping belt around the perimeter of the site.
The scheme is being developed to achieve a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating and will adhere to the UK Green Building Councils Net Zero Buildings Framework.
Future flexibility is also built into the design, with features such as a strengthened roof to enable full coverage of solar photovoltaics and underground infrastructure to facilitate 100% of all car and HGV parking spaces to have electric charging points.
Commenting on the appointment, Glencar Managing Director for Midlands and North, Pete Goodman said: “We are absolutely delighted to once again be working for our long-standing and much valued customer PLP on this incredible new speculative development.”
The scheme is scheduled to be complete by the end of this year.
