Contractor wins deal to build 470,000 sq ft of warehouse space

How the new warehouses will look

Winvic Construction has also won the contract to build two industrial warehouses at East Midlands Distribution Centre (EMDC) for Clowes Developments

The move follows Winvic being appointed to build two industrial facilities at Castlewood Business Park for the developer.

The industrial units at Castle Donington are part of the deal between Clowes Developments and NFU Mutual to develop six lwarehouses throughout the UK worth in the region of £100m.

EMDC190 is a 190,000 sq ft unit with over 10,000 sq ft of office space over two floors. EMDC280, also 15m in height, is 280,000 sq ft and has 17,000 sq ft of two-storey office space and 26 loading bays.

Winvic Construction director, Ben Shearman, said: “Having just announced our appointment by Clowes Developments for the construction of two warehouse units at Castlewood Business Park, this second ground-breaking ceremony within a matter of days illustrates how robust our long-term partnership is with the Clowes team. We’re delighted they have every confidence in us to deliver two further high-quality industrial spaces safely and quickly at the East Midlands Development Centre site in Derbyshire, and now it’s up to us to once again exceed expectations.”

Paul Shanley, consultant at Clowes Developments, added: “Since our ownership of EMDC began we have continually bought world class businesses to the development. Thousands of jobs have been generated on the former power station site and we endeavour to deliver further regeneration with the remaining plots at the site. The addition of two brand-new units for NFU Mutual – which will be delivered by long-term construction partner Winvic – will bring a new dimension to the site and we are confident the new occupiers will benefit from all that EMDC and its locality has to offer.”
