Europe’s largest bonded warehouse under way
Located in Avonmouth, the project’s main contractor is Fitzpatrick Contractors and the developer is Goodman.
The project is for drinks company Constellation Europe, and consists of a large warehouse and bottling centre together with associated offices and ancillary buildings.
The aim of the development is to cut shipping and reduce the mountain of imported green glass produced by UK wine drinkers. Instead wine will be imported in large containers and bottled in Avonmouth.
The distribution and bottling plant should be operational in early 2009, while the offices will open later the same year. Approximately 2,860t of steel will be used on the job.
