Over the past five years Gazeley has built over 13 million sq ft of efficient, sustainable warehouse space, reducing its customers’ operating costs by £930,000 per year. In 2007 Gazeley completed a number of environmental projects including an eco-building for Procter & Gamble at G.Park Amiens in France, which reduces CO2 emissions by 56 per cent and operating costs by £69,000 a year, and a similar venture for John Lewis at Magna Park, Milton Keynes, which offers a 39 per cent reduction in CO2 and £238,000 in annual costs.
Gazeley’s latest development, G.Park Blue Planet – Chatterley Valley, is considered its most ambitious so far. It is a truly carbon positive logistics development with its very own Bio fuel power station, kinetic energy plates and a solar wall. The company believes operating cost savings of £300,000 a year will be obtainable.
