SEGRO Logistics Park East Midlands Gateway.
SEGRO are to begin their first speculative development at SEGRO Logistics Park East Midlands Gateway. The park is a 700-acre development with planning consent for up to 6,000,000 sq ft of logistics accommodation that is adjacent to East Midlands Airport with direct links to Felixstowe and Southampton via an on-site rail freight terminal as well as having easy access to the motorway network.
The new unit is expected to be ready for occupation in October 2021 and will see the creation of over 220,000 sq ft of net carbon zero modern warehouse space rated BREEAM ‘Excellent’. The unit comes with office space, a transport hub office and a gatehouse. Sustainable features include: roof mounted photovoltaic panels that generate electrical power, LED lighting and upgraded cladding which will improve air-tightness for temperature controlled operations and 15 electric vehicle charging points.
This means the unit is in line with SEGRO’s sustainability goals of reducing its carbon footprint by 40%, reducing embodied carbon by 20% and sending no waste to landfill by 2025.
