UK construction firm Glencar has been appointed by logistics real estate developer Logicor to construct a 330,000sq ft sustainable warehouse at Little Hulton in Bolton.

The project will see the redevelopment of a 20-acre site with demolition of the existing warehouses and removal and recycling of existing hard standings along with grouting of existing mine shafts and ground improvement across the site.

Construction will take 54 weeks with completion expected by Q4 2025.

The new facility will target BREEAM Outstanding and an EPC A rating and feature 311,500sq ft of warehouse space, a 2,000sq ft hub office and approximately 13,000sq ft of office space over three storeys.

It will also feature up to an 18-metre eaves height, as well as 32 dock and three level access doors.

Other sustainability features include LED lighting, EV charging points and rainwater harvesting. The office pod will have a green roof to support local biodiversity and there will be an outdoor gym on site.

Logicor UK development director, Matt Storr said: “We’ve continued to see demand for sustainable assets in prime locations grow. This development has strong sustainability credentials, which paired with the connectivity of its central location, makes it a unique and compelling offer on the market.”
