Work starts on major Swindon logistics park

Posted on by in News

Winvic Construction has been awarded the first contract in the redevelopment of the former Honda car plant, in Swindon, by Panattoni.

The works to be delivered by Winvic, comprise site-wide ground contamination investigations and the demolition of four main existing structures; a research and development building, an engine plant, two car plants and 12 ancillary buildings. The work commenced on 19 February 2024 and will be completed in January 2025.

Wider infrastructure works will follow the demolition and ground investigations, forming plateaus for the first seven of 11 net zero carbon buildings that will total 669,000m2 of new advanced industrial space, fit for logistics, manufacturing and data centre uses.

Around 7,000 jobs will be created for the people of Swindon and surrounding communities, and 9,000 indirect jobs in the supply chain over the next 10 years.

Owen Follett, Project Delivery Director, Panattoni, said: “As well as creating an attractive location for businesses to locate and expand their operations, this will be a highly sustainable development with the demolition process for Panattoni Park Swindon recycling over 95 percent of onsite materials and achieving net zero carbon during construction.”
