Heathrow’s Building 521 rebuild complete

SWIP’s Airport Industrial Property Unit Trust has completed the rebuild of building 521 – cargo centre at Heathrow.

Jason Gaskell, executive vice president of occupier Servisair, said: “During the build of the new warehouse, Servisair was able to maintain its high levels of service from its temporary facilities. With the new facility now completed this will only further enhance our service offerings.”

The rebuild comes after the former structure was destroyed by fire in 2010 and represents a total investment of £5.2m.

The warehouse has over 86,000 sq ft of commercial space and benefits from airside access.

It took 15 months to complete and incorporates a number of structural enhancements to underpin its status and operation within the Heathrow cargo handling community. Servisair handles freight operations for several key airlines.
