Segro is to build a second speculative phase at Rainham

Segro is to build a second speculative phase at Rainham

The East London last-mile delivery scene has prompted another new shed development.

Segro is to build a second speculative phase at Rainham. The 108,000 sq ft development will provide five units between 11,000 sq ft and 36,000 sq ft.

The development follows a partnership between Segro and the Greater London Authority to develop 86 acres of brownfield land across Newham, Barking & Dagenham and Havering.

The development is targeting carbon neutrality and will incorporate a number of sustainability features aimed at enhancing employee wellbeing and which will help it achieve WELL ‘Core’ accreditation, such as a living feature ‘green’ wall inside a reception area, translucent wall and roof panels to allow in more natural daylight, and a ‘pocket park’ amenity space to enable people to take a break in a natural environment. 

Around 140,000 sq ft of space has been leased at the site to date to a range of companies including Mitsubishi Electric, MEP Hire and Babcock, leaving one final 70,558 sq ft unit available for occupancy.  Furthermore, SEGRO Park Rainham also incorporates an Enterprise Quarter, a pioneering hub providing workspace ranging from 500 sq ft to 2,000 sq ft for start-up and smaller business, which has attracted 20 businesses since launching in the summer of 2018.
