Contractor appointed to new warehouse development

A contract has been awarded for the construction of a new warehouse facility on the Green Lane Industrial Estate in Featherstone, following the awarded of planning permission.

Onward Holdings Ltd has awarded Tolent Construction the contract for the project at its Phoenix Park site.

More than 66,000 sq ft of space with steel portal frame construction will be built, providing 12m eaves height, uniform floor loading of 50 kNm2, six loading doors (including four docks), first floor office accommodation and 62 car parking spaces. A yard and security systems are also included.

Neil Storey, director of Onward Holdings, said: "Planning permission and the constructors are in place to build the new warehouse at Phoenix Park. It will be available as a bespoke unit or managed 3PL warehouse and should be ready to lease in around six months.

"We are anticipating a surge of interest in this prime site due to hugely competitive market for suitable, quality warehousing."

Green Lane Industrial Estate less than three miles away from junction 31 of the M62, with M1 and A1M and Doncaster Sheffield Airport also in close proximity.

Site promotion is being handled jointly by Iain McPhail, Knight Frank and Andrew Miller, Andrew Miller Chartered Surveyors.
