Winvic Construction is to deliver the fifth industrial unit at SERGO’s 700-acre multi-modal logistics hub in the East Midlands
The 177,500 sq ft industrial unit will mean end-user Games Workshop Limited joins Amazon, XPO Logistics, Kuehne & Nagel and ShopDirect at the logistics hub in the East Midlands.
Winvic started on site this week and The Games Workshop industrial unit will be the fifth to be built at the park, residing on Plot number 6.

The single-storey facility comprises 12,000 sq ft of two-storey office space and also includes the creation of a plant deck and 101,490 sq ft yard space.
At 14.8 metres it is not a high facility – unlike the 35-metre high-bay residing on Plot 2 – but stringent crane height restrictions in relation to East Midlands Airport air traffic remain in place.
Winvic will continue to liaise extensively with the adjacent airport to meet safety requirements. It will build a spur road to the plot as part of associated works and fit out the offices in the building before reaching practical completion in July 2020.
Winvic Construction director, Rob Bull, commented: “Our relationship with SEGRO has gone from strength to strength since we began one of the largest earth-moving, multi-agency developments in Europe three years ago at the SLPEMG site, and now we’re looking forward to starting further industrial construction on Plot 6 for Games Workshop.
“The warehouse and distribution space will total 6 million sq ft when complete and the SRFI covers 50 acres; few projects are as large or broad as SLPEMG or have huge challenges like an adjacent airport.
“The full Winvic team, which includes our trusted suppliers and consultants, are very proud to be delivering such a significant scheme for SEGRO and the UK’s logistics sector.”
Andrew Pilsworth, SEGRO’s business unit director, National Logistics, added: “This leasing represents another significant milestone for SLPEMG, representing further evidence of demand for space, and the pace at which we are able to deliver it.
“We have now contracted almost 3 million sq ft of space across the site, with the relocation of Games Workshop exemplifying the range of occupiers attracted to the park.”
