The industrial warehouses are expected to be completed by July 2022 in Sutton-in-Ashfield, close to junction 28 of the M1 at Nottingham.

Household company names such as Co-op, Parker Knoll and Bombardier already occupy some of the existing 1.5 million sq ft of distribution and manufacturing space on the site.

The plans

  • Two speculatively built modern industrial warehouses will be delivered by Winvic
  • Plot 1 is 158,500 sq ft and 15m high with 18 docks and four level access doors; 10,300 sq ft of office space over two-storeys will be created inside the facility and a 2,700 sq ft external hub office will also be constructed
  • Plot 8 is 126,500 sq ft and 12.5m high with 12 docks, four level access doors and 7,700 sq ft office space, also over two-storeys

First, Winvic will begin by undertaking cut, fill and compaction works to create the plateaux before completing the foundations of the industrial warehouses.

It is hoped that the steel frame installation will begin before the end of January and cladding will take place the following month.

External site works include all drainage and service installation, hardstandings, landscaping and parking for cars and HGVs.

Other projects

Other Winvic developments in the process of being built include two industrial units in Corby and the first phase of groundworks, highways and utility infrastructure works at Fairham.

Winvic construction director, Ben Shearman, said:

“Winvic has been working with Clowes Developments for some time now on both industrial, and civils and infrastructure schemes including a new purpose-built facility for Deichmann-Shoes in Corby.

“We’re delighted they have appointed Winvic for the fourth time this year to construct this modern speculative unit at Castlewood Business Park. Our experienced team is looking forward to hitting the ground running in January and delivering the scheme safely and rapidly within a seven-month period.”

James Richards, Clowes Developments, commented:

“We are delighted to work with Winvic on this project. We have a small network of reliable and hardworking suppliers who achieve the high standards we aspire to across our ever growing portfolio, not just in the end product but also throughout the delivery process.

“Castlewood is now almost completely built out and we are very happy to see these two plots being developed as part of NFU Mutual’s property stock.”
