Caunton supplied the steelwork for a new 250,000sq ft. warehouse complex for major logistics provider Norbert Dentressangle at Grand Central, Trafford Park in Manchester.
Caunton designed and constructed the 800te steelwork framework for main contractor Winvic Construction. It features a 237,000 sq. ft. of portal-framed warehouse space together with 13,000 sq. ft. of office space arranged over two storeys.
It was reported that Norbert Dentressangle agreed terms on a 15-year lease with Evander Properties, the logistics and industrial property developer, and Legal & General’s Industrial Property Investment Fund (IPIF), and plans to use the facility to distribute the on-line products of fashion retailer Missguided. The growth in on-line retailing is clearly continuing.
