Glencar is to fit out a new 164,000 sq ft Ocado warehouse at Symmetry Park, Bicester.

This is Ocado’s second partnership with Glencar who also fitted out their “mini-customer fulfilment centre” in Bristol.

The project includes the full fit-out of freezer, chill and ambient internal sections and mezzanines within the warehouse. The works will include new internally piled foundations, an extension to the offices and significant alteration works to the building envelope/external facade.

The facility once complete will be one of the most advanced of its type in the world, featuring high-tech robotics and automation. It will be used to further improve Ocado’s distribution operations across Oxfordshire for its rapidly growing online grocery customer base.

Glencar Managing Director Eddie McGillycuddy said: This ultra-modern, state of the art automated facility will play an integral role in Ocado’s online grocery regional distribution network for many years to come.”

Tritax’s 53-acre Symmetry Park, Bicester is home to Bentley Designs (88,000 sq ft); Medline Services (110,000 sq ft) and DPD Group (60,000 sq ft) as well as the Ocado warehouse. It is currently under construction and due to be completed in April 2021.
