Crewe 460 will be built correspondingly with the UK’s Carbon Net-Zero plan

In conjunction with all PLP speculatively developed projects, Crewe 460 will be built correspondingly with the UK Green Building Council Carbon Net-Zero level. The design has been developed to reduce embodied carbon while building. It also constitutes a number of measures to help the end occupier to transition well and affordably to carbon net-zero operation as well as air source heating, solar photovoltaics, cooling, LED lighting, and electric car charging points.

Additionally, the project is designed for the occupier’s future flexibility such as a strengthened roof to allow full coverage of solar photovoltaics and underground infrastructure to enable 100% of all car and HGV parking areas installed with electric charging points.

Peter Goodman, the Managing Director for Midlands and North at Glencar stated: “We place much attention on long-term customer relationships, and we are happy again to be partnering with the PLP team to create this high-quality big box project. Our earlier Manchester office opened recently is now working on a growing number of schemes in the North West and we progress to capitalize on the opportunities being brought by the leveling up agenda and the advancement of the Northern Powerhouse.”
