Steel creates further icons at Manchester Airport

Posted on by in Weekly News

Located adjacent to Manchester Airport, one of the North West’s most strategically-located logistics parks is expanding with two new steel-framed distribution centres.

Icon Industrial – a joint venture between Stoford Developments and TPG Real Estate – is continuing the expansion of its Manchester Airport logistics park with two new BREEAM ‘Very Good’ rated distribution warehouses.

Working on behalf of Winvic Construction, Caunton Engineering is fabricating, supplying and erecting 1,000t of steelwork for the scheme.

Commenting on the scheme, Dan Gallagher, Joint Managing Director of Stoford Developments says: “Icon Manchester Airport is a hugely successful scheme that continues to stimulate the Greater Manchester economy through the flexibility the site offers to its tenants.

“The scheme has understandably attracted significant demand from businesses keen to locate here, given the strong list of existing occupiers and the site’s unrivalled airport connectivity.”

Unit three is approximately 110m-long x 115m-wide with a 15m clear height to the underside of the haunch. The structure will offer 11,900m² of industrial or warehouse space and features three internal spans of 38.33m. It also includes a three-storey integral 930m² office block and plant deck positioned at one end of the building.

The neighbouring unit four is approximately 115m-long x 85m-wide and is a twin-span portal frame warehouse, with a 12.5m clear height to the underside of the haunch. This structure will be an 8,800m² single storey in-flight meal manufacturing warehouse including an integral three-storey 700m² office area and plant deck.
