WCN Editorial Team 3 Oct 2022 EUROPE BUILDINGS

Winvic Construction has broken ground on a project that will see the construction company build first four industrial facilities at Milton Keynes, UK, for developer PLP.

This comes as the delivery of the civils and infrastructure contract for PLP at South Caldecotte, Milton Keynes is ongoing until June 2023.

The company will deliver the facilities as net zero carbon in construction building, with scope for tenants to achieve net zero carbon in operation as each roof of the building will be able to hold up to 100% PV panels.

The first unit will be 14,900ft2 two-storey office building; second to be a 11,500ft2 two-storey office space; third unit will be a 14,700ft2 two-storey office space; and the fourth unit to be a 13,200ft2 two-storey office building.

Additionally, 17 acres of lowland meadows and 3.8km of pedestrian and cycle ways, which will be integrated into the MK Red Way cycle network, will be built at park of the project.

The handover of the first unit is slated for February, with final completion expected by the end of June next year.

Winvic will build the four facilities with low carbon concrete, cladding and steel.

The project’s delivery will be in line with the UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) Net Zero Buildings Framework.

Winvic’s head of industrial, distribution and logistics Danny Nelson said “We have worked in partnership with PLP on previous schemes and we are also continuing to deliver the S278 and infrastructure works across the 135-acre site at South Caldecotte. I’d like to thank the PLP team for putting their trust in us once more, seeing our commitment to realising clients’ Carbon Net Zero aims and engaging us to deliver these four industrial facilities totalling 838,000 sq ft.”

PLP official Edward Jackson added: “PLP are wholly focussed on the delivery of a best in class, customer focused Net Zero Carbon business park. This ambitious target is being achieved through smart design, well considered social amenity and uncompromised specification. For PLP, Winvic’s proved track record and highly professional team are the perfect delivery partner for the Infrastructure and Units 1 to 4 and we look forward to welcoming our first customers in early 2023.”
