Our works are progressing well at Panattoni’s Wakefield515 industrial development with the construction journey being captured on the site’s time-lapse camera.
This landmark 512,820 sq. ft speculative development is the largest to be constructed in the North for 10 years and is ideally located at the M62 and A1(M) junction in Yorkshire, serving as a key strategic hub for future occupiers.
Up to 500 full-time jobs and £5.5 million will be brought into the local economy as a result of Wakefield515’s construction and interest in the development has been extremely strong.
Adrian Dobson, MD at Caddick Construction said: “This has been an exciting project to work on despite the challenging circumstances we saw in 2020. This landmark scheme has attracted a lot of interest from day one and has helped to cement Yorkshire’s reputation as a key industrial and logistical hub for the North of England.”
Wakefield515 is designed to offer maximum flexibility for logistics, distribution and manufacturing businesses. The cross-docked warehouse will provide occupiers with generous service yards and incorporate sustainable features, such as rainwater harvesting systems, a PV ready roof and LED motion sensor lighting. The building has been constructed to a BREEAM rating of ‘Very Good’ and EPC rating of ‘A’.
