Two phases of Derbyshire industrial centre reach completion

Phase 1A and 1B of Horizon 29, an industrial and distribution centre in Bolsover, Derbyshire, have reached completion.

Horizon 29 covers 1.15m sq ft of space and includes eight warehouses across three phases by McLaren Construction (Midlands and North).

Phase 1A consists of two single-story distribution warehouses (units 1 and 2) featuring sustainable elements such as solar PVs, air source heat pumps, high-quality cladding, responsibly sourced materials, LED lighting, and electric vehicle charging stations.

These units have been constructed to achieve a BREEAM Rating of ‘Excellent’ and an EPC ‘A’ Rating.

Phase 1B included the construction of units 4 and 5, alongside mechanical and electrical installations, office fit-outs, and external works, including conference laboratory car parks.

The contractor managed earthworks, CMC and VSC piling, concrete foundations, steel framing, lift shaft and stair installations, roofing nets, and office elevation cladding.

Gary Cramp, managing director of McLaren Construction (Midlands and North), said: “We are delighted that works for both Phase 1A and 1B are finally complete. Once all phases are finished, Horizon 29 will be a premier distribution centre for the region, and an ideal hub for quality tenants looking for direct and easy access to the M1 north and south.

“We were pleased to be working alongside BentallGreenOak and Equation Properties for the second phase of this landmark scheme.”

Dick Smallman, Equation Properties, said: “Despite a challenging site and weather, we are very impressed with the superb quality of the units and works that McLaren Construction has delivered to date. The speed with which they’ve carried out particular elements of the work, the seamless design which blends into the countryside and the innovative techniques used have been fantastic.”
