Knowsley Hub

A 36,000 sq ft industrial scheme has been completed by Triton Construction at Knowsley Hub, for Liverpool-based logistics developer, Redsun Projects.

The £3m development comprises five units ranging from 6,000 sq ft to 10,000 sq ft with Howdens already taking occupation of unit two.

Knowsley Hub is a prominent site fronting South Boundary Road at the main entrance to Knowsley Industrial Estate where occupiers include Amazon, Ocado and QVC.

Triton was contracted to deliver a full turnkey solution for the scheme including groundworks remediation, partial demolition of an adjacent building and existing hard standing, and full design and build of the units to incorporate offices and yard space.

It also completed the diversion of an existing public sewer, surface water drainage, attenuation and foul water drainage, a new concrete service yard, hard and soft landscaping, car parking and lighting. The unit specification includes 6.30m clear internal height, 40KN warehouse floor loading, three phase power supply, 4m-wide automatic loading doors and EV charge points.

Paul Clarkson managing director at Triton Construction, said this was the firm’s first scheme for Redsun Projects, adding: “With recent contract successes with other high profile developers for schemes ranging in size up to 185,000 sq ft, we are forging a strong reputation for delivering turnkey solutions in a sector where demand is now critical. We continue to invest in our presence in the North West with a highly skilled team.”

Nick Wightman, director at Redsun Projects, said: “We are really pleased with the result at Knowsley Hub. Occupier demand remains strong for good quality, energy-efficient units in a high profile location, and Knowsley Hub certainly ticks all those boxes. We have a further five acres secured to deliver a second phase and expect to bring that forward early 2023.”
