Construction company Glencar has been instructed by logistics property developer PLP to build a 344,500 sq ft warehouse speculatively on a 17-acre site in Stafford.

Located on the Stone Business Park and close to the A34 and junctions 14 and 15 of the M6, the site involves redevelopment of a redundant and recently vacated data centre into a hi-spec logistics warehouse with a BREEAM Excellent rating, as well as adhering to the UKGBC’s net zero buildings framework.

It will include 20,000 sq ft of office accommodation, a secure service yard, 300 car park spaces and the retention and enhancement of the existing landscaping belt around the perimeter of the site.

Features also include a strengthened roof to enable full coverage of solar photovoltaics and infrastructure to ensure all car and HGV spaces have electric charging points.

Construction commenced at the beginning of September with completion scheduled for Q2 2023.
