Siemens takes on extra space as it expands £200m rail facility

Trebor Developments and Hillwood have exchanged contracts with Siemens to pre let a 94,841 sq ft unit in Goole.

The scheme had been marketed as “Point 36 Goole” and Trebor secured detailed planning consent for the proposed unit, before entering into discussions with Siemens. 

The unit is opposite Siemens state-of-the-art rail facility which finished construction earlier in 2023.

Point 36 is part of a major investment in Goole in recent years, including Siemens £200m Rail Village and more recently Metsa Tissues’ new facility on 200 acres which benefits from Freeport Tax Site Status. 

GMI Construction has been appointed as main contractor and started on site in November, targeting practical completion in summer 2024. 

Greg Dalton, development director for Trebor, said: “We’re pleased to have agreed terms with a fantastic occupier at Point 36, our next project in Yorkshire, and to achieve another major milestone in appointing the main contractor.

“Siemens were an obvious customer for us, and we’ve worked with them to ensure the unit satisfies their operation needs as well as to ensure it can be delivered by next summer at their request. We look forward to delivering the scheme.”  

Sambit Banerjee, European CEO for Siemens, added: “This is a further expansion and investment into our Rail Village at Goole.

“Our partnership with Trebor and GMI Construction continues to embed our commitment to a local supply chain and supporting the economy.

“Bringing together our warehouse capabilities in one location serving our depots in the north, and another at Kettering for the south, allows us to focus on ensuring our depots can deliver the best service for the trains maintenance keeping availability and reliability at the forefront of what we do.” 

Point 36 was jointly marketed by GV&Co and Holder & Co on behalf of Trebor and Hillwood. Colliers acted on behalf of Siemens.
