New sheds award for Midlands rail freight terminal
VolkerFitzpatrick has been selected by Prologis to design and build two new production units at its Daventry International Rail Freight Terminal (DIRFT) site.
Each steel-framed warehouse will have an internal height of 18m, with one facility having an internal footprint of 21,500m2, and the other of 26,188m2.
The units will largely be used for goods storage and will be equipped with two-storey main office accommodation, as well as smaller hub offices, which will sit outside the warehouse perimeter. Each unit will also feature a reception area, kitchen and welfare facilities. External works to the site will include hardstanding areas, car parking facilities, landscaping and drainage.
The project is worth over £26M and is scheduled to run until August 2022.
