Minister backs green sheds

Gazeley Properties attracted government high-flier David Miliband MP, the new secretary of state for environment, food and rural affairs, to its award-winning Voltaic warehouse development in Dagenham, East London.

Located in the Dagenham Dock Sustainable Industrial Park, Voltaic was constructed by Gazeley using its sustainable development concept EcoTemplate, which aims to reduce the impact of the building on the environment by using recyclable and sustainable materials and renewables.

James Behrens, development director for Gazeley and SolarCentury’s Patrice Clements escorted the minister and the chief executive of the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham, Rob Whiteman, on a fact finding tour of the 232,965 sq ft (21,643 sq m) distribution facility. Miliband called it an “excellent development”.
