Sustainability

Our commitment to responsible property investment

We are committed to responsible long term property investment that allows all our stakeholders to grow together and minimise environmental impacts from business and development activities.

We design, develop and manage high quality efficient buildings that seek to enhance operational and cost efficiencies for our customers and investors, and that positively support the local communities.

Our schemes are located at or close to multi-modal transport interchanges and modes to maximise the accessibility and use of public transport for our customers workforce, and to help protect the level of carbon emissions around the UK's airports.

Mix & match to suit your future needs

Sustainable provisions to extend the life of a building and to maximise operational efficiencies can come in many forms. Working with our customers we can integrate the following sustainable features throughout new warehouse buildings:

  • Electric car charging ports
  • Energy efficient lighting systems
  • Low carbon materials and technology
  • PV solar panels
  • Rain water harvesting
  • Recycled and locally sourced building materials
  • 15%+ roof lights
  • Smart metering
  • Water economic systems
