Each unit will have green walls – helping purify the air, regulate the temperature and promoting biodiversity in the local area, as well as creating a more enjoyable surrounding for those working in and around the site.
Along with the green walls which will grow a variety of species of plants, carefully selected to remove pollutants from the air and reduce carbon dioxide, mature trees will be planted in the landscaped areas, attracting native wildlife and playing an important role in reducing carbon dioxide levels.

Alan Holland, SEGRO’s Managing Director, Greater London, said: “This will be a game changer for industrial development and will show what can be done to meet our environmental responsibilities as property developers.
“The increasing demand from our customers and the wider market for space ever closer to the end consumer supports our decision to build this estate speculatively and we’re excited to bring forward this development and the positive impact it will bring to the local employment market and economy.”
