Fowler Welch, Aylesford2

Fowler Welch has signed a 15-year lease for an environmentally sustainable 97,891sq ft facility at Kent’s Panattoni Park Aylesford.

Joining logistics giant DHL at the site, the temperature controlled logistics operator signed the pre-lease agreement for the facility, which includes several zero-carbon technologies and enhanced sustainability features, as well as 20 dock doors and a 50m yard.

Panattoni Park is aiming to minimise the operational use of carbon, which includes scope three emissions from tenant activity and installed equipment and systems such as heating and lighting.

The developer said each building will have air source heat pumps to control temperature in the offices and photovoltaic panels on the roofs.

It is expected the measures will generate up to 15% reductions in regulated energy use across the building.

Alex Mitchell, Panattoni development associate, said: “In a short space of time we have signed pre-lets with two high-quality logistics companies, which endorses our belief in the location.

“Aylesford is the largest available logistics site serving London and the Channel ports.”
