SEGRO Park Hayes to provide four sustainable units

A former chocolate factory near Heathrow is to be redeveloped by SEGRO as four mid-box units totalling 240,000 sq ft.

SEGRO Park Hayes, which was once home to an iconic former Nestle chocolate and coffee producing factory, will be developed with four industrial units totalling 239,665 sq ft.

The site is less than a mile from junction 3 of the M4 motorway.

The largest unit, totalling 97,600 sq ft, has already been pre-let. The remaining three, one of which will be particularly suited for a data centre due to its power, connectivity and security, are being built speculatively to meet the demand for modern, environmentally sustainable warehousing.

The building has been designed to carbon neutral standards for regulated energy use. Sustainability features include photovoltaic panels, electric vehicle charging points, LED lighting, air source heat pumps and reflective glazing, which will help reduce the level of energy consumed by the buildings.

SEGRO Park Hayes is an integral part of the wider regeneration of the 30-acre former Nestlé factory with Barratt London delivering over 1,300 new homes on the remainder of the site.

The design of the entire site has a strong reflection to its past, with the distinguishable art deco façade of the former Nestle factory being carefully restored and incorporated into the modern design of the housing development.
