The job to build a 456,000 sq ft speculative big box marks the final phase of the Basford West employment park in Crewe.

Work on Crewe 460 is due to start imminently and fast-tracked to finish in December this year.

Crewe 460 is being constructed to be a ‘best-in-class’ warehouse featuring 15m clear internal height, 72m deep service yard, three-storey external offices and car park with 442 spaces.

As with all PLP speculatively developed units, Crewe 460 will be constructed in accordance with the UK Green Building Council Carbon Net Zero standard.

The design has been developed to minimise embodied carbon during construction. This includes numerous measures to enable the end occupier to transition easily and affordably to carbon net zero operation including solar photovoltaics, air source heating and cooling, LED lighting and electric car charging points.

Peter Goodman Glencar Managing Director Midlands and North said: “Our recently opened Manchester office is now working on a growing number of projects across the North West and we continue to capitalise on the opportunities being driven by the levelling up agenda and the growth of the Northern Powerhouse.”
