The speculative development comprises the design and construction of two sheds totalling approximately 310,409 sq ft at Silkwood Business Park in Wakefield for PLP Property.
The project incorporates a warehouse facility and integral mezzanine offices, respectively. Both unit 1 (235,409 sq ft) and unit 2 (75,000 sq ft) include a service yard, dock levellers and level access doors, car, trailer parking and external works.
As part of PLP’s sustainability policy on speculative buildings, the units will be delivered to a net zero carbon ready standard (as defined under the UK Green Building Council framework) and will achieve a BREEAM Very Good rating. Sustainability initiatives include roof mounted solar panels and charging points for electric vehicles.
Dawa Singh, head of pre-construction at JF Finnegan said: “We are excited to have secured this project for PLP and look forward to working closely with PLP and Quartz Project Services. JF Finnegan have played a significant role in logistics and distribution warehouses within the South Yorkshire region for over 75 years. We are passionate about Wakefield and proud to be a part of this latest redevelopment project which will enhance the local economy in the current economic climate.”
