New net zero logistics scheme for Longbridge

Construction work on a 154,000 sq ft net zero carbon logistics scheme is to begin at Longbridge.

The development at the Crofton Centre is intended to show off developer St Modwen’s Swan Standard specification – a set of industry-leading sustainable development guidelines with a focus on responsible building practices that allows its customers to reduce running costs and carbon in operation emissions. 

The warehouse space will include triple-skinned GRP roof lights which reduce glare and overheating; built-up cladding which provides excellent air tightness and is fully recyclable; 20% electric vehicle charging; and PV solar panels, all of which underpin the BREEAM Excellent and EPC A+ rating

It is expected to achieve an overall carbon reduction of 53% compared with energy requirements set out in the UK Building Regulations.

The warehouse’s 12,600 sq ft office space will be operationally Net Zero Carbon, achieved by an energy efficient hybrid air source heat pump, smart metering and further sustainable enhancements such as AAA rated white goods which reduce electrical use; low energy lifts; and recycled carpets.

Work on site is excepted to complete by the autumn. The contractors are GMI.
