Warehouse scheme celebrates with traditional Japanese ceremony

Posted on by in News

A traditional saki barrel breaking ceremony has been performed at the groundbreaking for a new warehouse facility for Japan-based Yusen Logistics.

Being constructed by Winvic Construction, the facility is located on the SEGRO Logistics Park in Northampton.

Severfield is fabricating, supplying and erecting the steelwork for the warehouse, which comprises 106,281m2 of floor space with a 30,900m2 mezzanine level.

Winvic will also construct and fit out the 3,326m2 three-storey main office, which also has a roof terrace, and a single-storey hub office.

Designed to achieve a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating, which will reduce carbon to net zero during the construction, the building will feature an array of PV panels installed across the entire roof space.

David Goldsborough, Managing Director from Yusen Logistics, added: “This new facility sets a new logistics industry benchmark, and emphasises our commitment to providing sustainable logistics services by 2030. We are proud to share our organisation’s Japanese heritage at the recent groundbreaking event and are excited to be a part of this project, which will help us to achieve our sustainability goals.”
