New Excellent warehousing space for east London

Bridge Industrial has awarded a contract to McLaren Construction for a 31,800m2 industrial and logistics development at Chadwell Heath in east London.

Consisting of three principal buildings, which can be subdivided into a total of 10 units, the distribution scheme will provide accommodation for a broad range of users and will achieve BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and EPC A ratings.

The scheme is on the site of the former Müller milk processing plant. McLaren has worked with its supply chain to remove the plant’s underground tanks and has created piling structures around existing concrete foundations.

David Gavin, Managing Director for Industrial and Logistics in McLaren’s London & South Division, said: “No project is straightforward, whether brownfield or greenfield, urban or on the strategic highway network.

“This project is highly sustainable as a classic brownfield industrial site, but we will need our experience of industrial development and our supply chain relationships to work around past development and connect the project to statutory services in a timely way.”

Practical completion on the project is scheduled for July this year.
