Industrial developer St Modwen Logistics has taken on construction firm Glencar to build four new units at St Modwen Park Newport.
The latest development totals 115,000 sq ft, with units ranging in size from 16,558 sq ft to 43,487 sq ft and is designed in accordance with the St. Modwen Swan Standard which focuses on sustainability, net carbon reduction and health and wellbeing.

Each individual unit will achieve EPC A and BREEAM Very Good ratings, as a minimum through the inclusion of photovoltaic solar system, hybrid air source heat pumps, electric vehicle charging and recycled materials.
