Ocado searches for new warehouse following fire at Andover

Ocado searches for new warehouse following fire at Andover

Ocado, the online grocery business, is understood to be searching for a replacement for the 784,000 sq ft Andover warehouse badly damaged in a blaze earlier this week.

The full-automated plant has a floor area of 240,000 sq ft, but mezzanine floors add to the capacity.

Finding a location able to serve the region will be difficult, with the supply of larger units strictly constrained in the immediate Hampshire/Wiltshire neighbourhood.

Further afield units such as Gazeley’s 1 million sq ft Unit G at Magna Park, Lutterworth, might be suitable but Ocado would have to compete with other potential tenants. US homewares giant Wayfair has been linked with the Gazeley unit.
