The units come with long-term leases which were signed before construction began.

Fowler Welch’s 97,891 sq ft building, which has also achieved a BREEAM rating of Excellent and an EPC rating of A+, incorporates a 1.5MVA photovoltaic array covering the roof, a car park canopy and cycle shelter.

The peak electrical output from the solar panels is equal to the incoming supply, which means Fowler Welch will be able to operate fully from the power generated onsite.

These are the second and third facilities to be completed at Panattoni Park Aylesford, and follow the handover of a  78,794 sq ft unit to parcel giant Evri in September last year.

Alex Mitchell, Panattoni development manager, said the handing over of the units “marks another major milestone for our Aylesford development.!

He added: “We are determined to deliver on our promise to build a logistics and distribution park that is a benchmark for sustainability and a home for thousands of new jobs and expanding businesses.”
