new industrial units

Glencar has been appointed by St Modwen Logistics to construct four new industrial units at St Modwen Park Newport

The new industrial units are designed in accordance with the St. Modwen Swan Standard which focuses on sustainability, net carbon reduction and health and wellbeing.

The industrial units will achieve EPC A and BREEAM Very Good ratings

The units range in size from 16,558 sq ft to 43,487 sq ft and will each achieve EPC A and BREEAM Very Good ratings through the inclusion of photovoltaic solar system, hybrid air source heat pumps, electric vehicle charging and recycled materials.

Fitness trails, amenity space and structured landscapes are all included in the wider development that totals 115,000 sq ft.

The project team includes Cumming Group, Roberts Limbrick and Rogers Leask.

Work starts on site this month and is due for completion in Q4 2022.

Designed to St. Modwen’s Swan Standard

Richard Carter construction director St Modwen Logistics said: “St. Modwen Park Newport is a key strategic gateway site, where 213,000 sq ft of sustainable warehouse space is already complete.

“This 100-acre business park is designed to St. Modwen’s Swan Standard which offers enhancements across five key areas: environment and sustainability, wellbeing, community, transport, and security.

High quality, innovative buildings

“We are pleased to appoint Glencar to deliver this project and build high quality, innovative buildings to our Swan Standard.”

Glencar managing director Eddie McGillycuddy said: “We are very happy to once again be working for St Modwen Logistics on this key gateway development in Newport.

“This represents the third instruction we have received from St Modwen in the past 12 months with two of those projects running currently at St Modwen Park Chippenham and SkyPark Exeter respectively.

“St Modwen Logistics has an extensive development programme currently at sites across the UK and Glencar are extremely proud to be a construction partner of choice to help facilitate that.

“We look forward to progressing these works as rapidly as possible and a successful outcome.”
