Recipe box retailer buys into St Modwen logistics park
St Modwen Logistics has signed a deal with recipe box retailer, Gousto, to deliver a 27,400m2 steel-framed fulfilment centre at St. Modwen Park Burton.
The £40M sustainable warehouse space will be home to a highly automated, chilled fulfilment centre where Gousto recipe boxes are picked and packed before being delivered to homes across the country.
Polly Troughton, Managing Director at St. Modwen Logistics said: “It’s fantastic to be working in partnership with Gousto and to offer them a bespoke, sustainable warehouse as their operational needs increase and their business flourishes, bringing further employment to the area to support economic growth.
Our shared mutual values in the environment and sustainability will allow Gousto to innovate, grow and respond to the heightened demand of their expanding customer base.”
The fulfilment centre will include three-storey offices and is aiming to achieve a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating and EPC A+ rating. The project’s sustainable features will include the installation of an energy-efficient hybrid air source heat pump, 20% EV charging points, and extensive use of recycled materials within the offices.
St. Modwen Logistics has appointed Readie Construction to deliver the fulfilment centre.
