Groundbreaking for net zero carbon development in Darlington

Posted on by in Weekly News

Main contractor Winvic and Greenbox have celebrated, with a groundbreaking ceremony, the start of construction for a new net zero carbon logistics park in Darlington.

Developer Greenbox is a joint venture between Partners Group, a leading global private markets firm and Citivale, a specialist logistics developer and operator.

Work on the 24-acre Greenbox Darlington site, comprising three speculative industrial facilities totalling 37,300m2, will be complete by the end of 2024.

The three units will each include office space and the entire development is aiming to achieve a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and EPC A ratings.

The project is located on the A66, close to three junctions on the A1(M). It is said to be a proven manufacturing hub and ‘last mile’ location to the major urban areas of the North East.

Danny Nelson, Winvic’s Head of Industrial, Distribution and Logistics, commented: “It seems that as we hand over one project with sustainability at its heart, we’re contracted for the next and we’re delighted to be working in partnership with Greenbox.”

Alex Reynolds, Development Director at Citivale, said: “We are delighted to be working with Winvic on our Greenbox Darlington development. Their ESG commitments and expertise are perfectly aligned with our goal for the Greenbox platform, to create a lasting, positive impact on a local, national and global level and to lead wherever possible in this regard.

“Having acquired this planning-ready site at the end of 2023, in a thriving industrial and manufacturing area of the North East, it’s great to have been able to move so quickly to this first milestone in the development.”
