Green warehouse at London Gateway logistics park fast-tracked following demand
The delivery of a new green warehouse at London Gateway has been fast-tracked to meet “rapidly growing” demand for industrial space.
London Gateway’s Logistics Park will fast-track the delivery of a speculative 146,000 sq ft green warehouse facility before the end of 2021 to meet growing demand for warehousing space in the South East.
The news follows the letting upon completion of LG231, a 230,000 sq ft warehouse facility, to P&O Ferrymasters last year.
Oliver Treneman, park development director at DP World in the UK, commented: “The new facility will be ready for occupancy in the last quarter of the year and will be one of the most sustainable warehouses yet built, with a BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ classification, EPC Rating A and Planet Mark Accredited.
“We are using the latest sustainable technologies to drive down both the use of raw materials and carbon emissions to the minimum possible levels. We aim to provide supply chain integration and our park is the largest facility of its kind in Europe.
“From this location, our customers can reduce transport costs, gain access to international supply chains and markets, and benefit directly from port-centric logistics. In conjunction with the nearby Port of Tilbury, London Gateway is also bidding for Freeports status which would further enhance the attractiveness of this location for companies looking to expand.”
