Gazeley has begun work on a B&Q’s new £70 million distribution centre on the 98 acre site at G. Park Swindon.
Gazeley has appointed design and construction firm McLaren, to commence work on the 796,649 sq ft site that will aim to be completed by June 2011.
The building will be a regional hub for B&Q to service its stores across the south of England.
Nigel Godfrey, UK senior vice president for Gazeley, said: “This development is in a sought-after location and will offer B&Q a high-quality logistics centre that incorporates superb eco-credentials as well as providing a huge boost to the local economy. This is the biggest development of its kind currently being built in the UK.”
