Winvic Construction has won a £35.8m contract to design and build four warehouses on the former Rolls Royce Engineering Works factory in Bootle for Royal London Mutual Insurance Society.

The company will first excavate concrete slabs on the 52-acre Atlantic Park site and prepare the ground for construction.

The four units will measure 40,000sq ft, 50,000sq ft, 110,000sq ft and 125,000sq ft.

The scheme is designed in accordance with Royal London’s sustainability strategy, which aims for new build property developments to achieve net zero by 2030.

BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and an EPC A rating is being targeted and the project will deliver a 10% biodiversity net gain; bird, bat and insect nest boxes will also be installed.

The project delivery also includes the installation of new services, separate concrete service yards, an access road and all hard and soft landscaping.

Danny Nelson, Winvic’s head of industrial, distribution and logistics, said: “We’re delighted to have impressed the Royal London team during the tender process and are ready to deliver four industrial facilities as net zero in construction for our new client.

“The site isn’t without its challenges due its former use, but we have successfully remediated the ground on numerous projects and are confident to deliver the scheme by the end of 2024.”
