The 6,000 square metre extension to the existing 14,000 square metre warehouse is due to complete in July, and is on target to achieve the coveted BREEAM ‘excellent’ environmentally-friendly building rating. Once completed the warehouse will be leased by port-centric retail logistics company Import Services.
The BREEAM ‘excellent’ rating is in recognition of both the method of construction and a building’s design. The new warehouse includes more than 3,000 solar panels installed onto the roof of both the new and existing structures. These are forecast to produce around 760,000 units of sustainable electricity (KWh) per year.
