Construction company Glencar is to build an 80,000 sq ft of speculative industrial space across three new units at a site in Coventry for logistics commercial property developers Bericote Properties.

The project, at Coventry Logistics Park which is located close to Junction 2 of the M6, began this month with the demolition of the existing building together with enabling works.

The project is expected to be complete by next summer. It will feature three units of 484,000 sq ft, 251,000 sq ft and 47,000 sq ft, which have been designed by architects Corstorphine & Wright.

All the units will be built to BREEAM Excellent rating with the two larger units totalling 15 metre eaves and the smaller unit 10 metres.

Pete Goodman, Glencar MD, Midlands and North said: “Coventry Logistics Park looks set to become one of the West Midlands' newest and highest profile logistics and industrial developments and we are absolutely delighted to have been instructed by Bericote and their joint venture partner JP Morgan on the project.

“We are gearing up to get started shortly with the demolition and redevelopment of the former Toys R Us site that sits on the site currently to then follow with construction of this brand new three-unit mega scheme.
