Construction on four new units is underway at two West Midlands logistic parks as Prologis expands its portfolio at Prologis Park Hams Hall and Prologis Park Ryton, near Coventry.

The industrial property developer has three buildings under construction with steelwork and cladding currently being put into place at Prologis Park Hams Hall.

The three units – DC2 (259,510 sq. ft.), DC3 (131,780 sq. ft.), and DC4 (85,685 sq. ft.) – are set for completion in summer 2022. At Prologis Park Ryton, work is underway on a 330,770 sq. ft. unit, also due to be completed in summer 2022.

Seven of its 22 logistics parks are located in the West Midlands with Prologis displaying its commitment to delivering logistics property in strategic locations for UK supply chains.

Both Prologis Parks Ryton and Hams Hall are important locations in the Midlands, especially for the automotive industry and are already home to companies such as Jaguar Land Rover, LEVC and DHL.

Both sites have quick access to the national motorway network, with Prologis Park Hams Hall also featuring an on-site intermodal rail freight terminal, which links to three seaports and the channel tunnel.

Sustainability has been factored into the build process from the outset too, with all units being net-zero in construction, and will be targeted BREEAM-rated ‘excellent’, and EPC A-rated.

Tom Price, capital deployment and leasing director at Prologis UK, said: “These four new units will provide vital extra capacity for the West Midlands logistics and warehousing market.

“We know that our customers and the wider business community recognise the value of the region to their supply chain operations, and we’re pleased to be providing facilities to help meet that demand.”
