ESG & Sustainability, Industrial & Logistics, SHW News
Prologis UK has secured planning permission for four new units in a second phase of development at Prologis Park Beddington in Croydon, South London.
The prime urban logistics site, which has excellent access to central London and surrounding areas, will provide an additional 93,935 sq ft of high-quality logistics and industrial space.
Winvic has been appointed as the main contractor, with groundworks due to start on site in May 2024 and completion due in February 2025. SHW is appointed as letting agent for the scheme.
In line with Prologis’ commitment to achieve net zero by 20230 in all areas of operation, the new units will be built to a high sustainability specification, with BREEAM “Excellent” and EPC A+ target ratings. With a wealth of low-carbon design features built in, the units will be carbon neutral in construction and net zero carbon in operation for regulated energy use.
To support customers in achieving their sustainability goals, each of the new logistics facilities will include an advanced photovoltaic (PV) array within the base build, alongside being infrastructure-ready for the further installation of onsite PV and energy storage systems. They will also have electric vehicle charging infrastructure as standard.
Simon Perks, Director of Capital Deployment and Leasing at Prologis UK, says: “We are delighted to reach the point of being able to implement our consent and bring phase two of Prologis Park Beddington to the market, continuing on from the successful completion and leasing of phase one.”
Alex Gale, Partner at SHW, comments: “The expansion of Prologis Park Beddington is good news for the local community, bringing some 50 jobs during construction and around 270 jobs when the site is operational. It’s also great news for the market, providing additional, high-quality and highly sustainable urban logistics space to the area to help meet demand.”
