Ground broken on St Modwen Park Derby warehouse scheme
Main contractor Winvic Construction has begun work on four steel-framed warehouse units at St Modwen Park Derby.
The four industrial warehouses on the 67-acre business park, which is close to M1 junction 25, will all be completed in less than 10-months. Steelwork for the project is being fabricated, supplied and erected by Caunton Engineering.
Winvic will deliver over 224,000m3 of cut and fill works on the site adjacent to the River Derwent to enable the development of the plots. It will also build 800m of new road infrastructure and create more than 20 acres of natural landscaped area in order to improve the working environment.
Unit D39 will offer 3,294m2 of warehouse space and 383m2 of office; D54 will offer 4,605m2 of warehouse space and 527m2 of office; D79 will offer 6,698m2 of warehouse and 639m2 of office; and Unit D131 will offer 11,332m2 of warehouse and 832m2 of office. All of the units are expecting to achieve BREEAM ‘Excellent’ ratings.
Winvic Project Manager, Adam Broadhurst, commented: “This four-warehouse project in Derby will be delivered in quite a short space of time, but the rapid build illustrates Winvic’s ambition, our team’s experience in the infrastructure and industrial sectors and our exacting programme management skills.”
