Work set to start on Daventry warehousing scheme
Logicor, a leading owner and manager of logistics real estate is set to begin its largest development in the UK.
Work is set to start on a site in Daventry, which is said to be within the core UK logistics location known as the Golden Triangle.
The company said as demand for well located, highly sustainable modern warehousing becomes increasingly important, it is redeveloping the site to create 74,300m2 of modern logistics across 38.5 acres, which will be known as Logicor Park Daventry.
Detailed planning consent has been secured for three new warehouses, as well as two on-site gyms, shower facilities and cycle paths. These will be integrated into Logicor Park Daventry to improve the wellbeing of those working at the site.
The project is targeting BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and EPC A, and will include a range of environmental features, including photovoltaic panels, electric vehicle charging points, LED lights and rainwater harvesting.
Charlie Howard, Logicor UK Managing Director, said: “The ability to develop modern warehouses in this key location was the main reason that we acquired it in 2021.
“The Golden Triangle continues to be the core location for distribution logistics and we know that our customers want to be located here, so we are delighted to be able to deliver modern and highly sustainable warehouses to the region.”
The project is set to be completed by early 2025.
