Ground broken on net zero speculative development in Doncaster
Panattoni has put the first spade in the ground to start speculatively developing its 38,793m2 logistics facility at Doncaster.
Winvic Construction has been appointed main contractor for the construction of Panattoni Doncaster 420, following the approval of planning consent from Doncaster Council in February.
It is strategically located close to junction 3 of the M18, the M1, A1(M) and M62 motorways. The facility also benefits from its easy accessibility to the ports of Hull, Immingham and Liverpool.
The facility will be net zero carbon and is being built to a BREEAM sustainability rating of ‘Excellent’ and an EPC rating of ‘A’. Other sustainability features include 20% electric vehicle charging spaces, 15% rooflights and the roof being designed to hold up to 100% PV panels.
The project comprises 37 loading doors, an 85m deep yard with parking for 74 HGVs, 358 parking spaces, 15m clear internal height and up to 1.5 MVa of power.
Dan Burn, Development Director at Panattoni, said: “Panattoni are delighted to be underway with another sustainable speculative commitment in the South Yorkshire region and we were very pleased to welcome Cllr Glyn Jones and representatives of Business Doncaster to the site to witness the early progress we have made.
“Panattoni Doncaster 420 occupies a prime location in South Yorkshire with fantastic transport links, providing easy access to both national and international consumer and industrial markets.”
Completion of the development is expected in January 2024.
