Global developer and investor Trammell Crow Company has begun work on its first European logistics site, a 19.4-acre scheme that will deliver three Grade A logistics buildings in Milton Keynes, UK.
With construction now underway by principal contractor Glencar, completion is due for spring 2023, with three speculative logistics buildings totalling approximately 340,000ft2
The buildings will provide increased load capacity on the roof to accommodate photovoltaic arrays and additional natural daylighting. They will also house transformers and primary electrical frameworks for increased electrical demand and reserves of power; have infrastructure suitable for electric vehicle charging; provide increased capacity of floor slabs for floor-standing mezzanines and pick-towers; and have the flexibility to accommodate various office configurations.
CBRE acted as the planning consultant on the project and Chetwoods as the architects.
Graham Reece, Head of European Logistics Construction at Trammell Crow Company, said: “We’re building these assets with a sharp focus on quality, ensuring they have the flexibility, the energy supply and the ESG credentials to meet investors’ and occupiers’ needs now and the future, staying ahead of whatever demands regulations and technology introduce.”
