Fenny Lock, Milton Keynes

We have been assisting main contractor Glencar Construction  with the successful delivery of a state-of-the-art 180,000 sq ft sustainable logistics scheme at a site in Milton Keynes.

The 10.4-acre site in Fenny Lock is being developed by Baytree and seeks to be one of the most sustainable logistics developments ever built in the UK. The scheme has been specified to a BREEAM Excellent rating , and ‘WELL ready’ and will feature a host of technology enabled sustainable design features which are beneficial to the health and wellbeing of building users such as the use of an extensive sensor suite which constantly monitors indoor air and water quality.

Baytree are a leading pan-European logistics building development company. Via their “Edge – Innovation at Work” commitments in the areas of technological advancement and social and environmental responsibility, the development will feature a host of multi-functional enhancements to promote employee wellbeing, operational and environmental efficiency. This includes “Cradle to Cradle” (circular economy) principles wherever possible so that in future materials used can be returned to industry and endlessly remanufactured without a loss in quality.

Amongst the many innovative features to be included in the design of the two-building scheme are the siting of separate ancillary office pods with roof garden terraces, and onsite water attenuation measures as a part of a sustainable drainage system which includes the harvesting of rainwater for re-use on site. The development will also provide outdoor gyms and training areas, edible vegetation and reclaimed timber seating.

"BE are fantastic building energy assessors, with competency across many areas. We have found them very useful on small and large projects. With the larger projects they can provide a range of assessments with one point of contact. We submitted a planning application for 224 residential apartments for a site in Luton. BE provided the flood, acoustic, heat loss and SUDS reports. The scheme was consented and reports were excellent. We have found them to been frank and honest with their advice. They are also lovely people to work with… which is very important."
