'Harlow’s biggest shed’ available to let

'Harlow’s biggest shed’ available to let

An opportunity for a long-term lease on the largest part of one of the south-east of the UK’s largest and best-equipped warehouses has arisen in Harlow following a successful lease agreement with ITS.

An area of 240,000 sq ft inclusive of 10,000 sq ft of office space is available at RDC240-Harlow, a substantial warehouse and purpose built distribution facility located on Harlow’s Edinburgh Way.

Set within a secure self-contained site of 14.75 acres, the centre boasts a 20,000-pallet narrow aisle racking capacity, excellent cubic capacity and 6,000-pallet bulk capacity with 11.5m eaves height for high-bay racking and excellent storage density for VNA or reach fork trucks.

RDC240 also has its own diesel-generator for back-up power supply in the event of mains failure, so there’s no interruption to operations.

“The key asset of this warehouse and distribution complex is flexibility,” says Kevin Fouhy of warehouse specialist AWS Ltd, which has been retained as the letting agent.
“In our view, RDC240-Harlow is suitable for multiple uses including as a warehouse and distribution centre, data centre or archive storage facility.

"Any business with a requirement for a base in the south east that manages a logistics, transport, and distribution operation will agree that it wants for nothing.”

The owner has thought of every possible feature when it designed this new distribution centre – not just size and operational efficiency.

A long list of extra specifications at RDC240-Harlow includes 27 level access loading doors with dock levellers to suit multi-vehicle type fleets, and 60 lorry and trailer parking spaces with trailer storage, wash down, maintenance building and service pit facilities.

In what will be sure to be attractive to retailer, warehouse and wholesale brands requiring new state-of-the-art storage and distribution capabilities, the list of extras also includes:

  • Security gatehouse, fenced perimeter, high spec comms and security cameras
  • An ESFR deluge roof-fitted sprinkler system - no in-rack sprinklers
  • On-site back-up diesel generators
  • Secure power supply in event of mains failure
  • 4G broadband to the site
  • Excellent road connections
  • High specification office accommodation including raised floors, suspended ceilings, toilets on each floor and a lift

Fouhy continues: “With 240,000 ft of space available, this distribution centre is the perfect all-in-one solution for a company wanting to set up a substantial distribution operation in the heart of South East UK.

“As a high-spec warehouse with extensive range of office facilities, security, road and communications access and vehicle access for all types of vehicles, it’s got everything.

RDC240-Harlow is ready to move into now.
