AIPUT rebuilds cargo facility at Heathrow

- Group

Airport Industrial Property Unit Trust (AIPUT) has completed the rebuild of Building 521, Cargo centre at Heathrow.

The recently-completed rebuild comes after the former structure was destroyed by fire in 2010 and represents a total investment of £5.2m. This prime cargo warehouse boasts over 86,000 sq ft of commercial space - facilities of this size are rarely available at this much sought after location.

The warehouse benefits from airside access which is pivotal for its cargo handling operator.

The build, which took 15 months to complete, incorporates a number of structural enhancements to underpin its status and operation within the Heathrow cargo handling community. Servisair handles freight operations for several key airlines

Nick Smith, SWIP's Investment Director for AIPUT, comments:- 
“Servisair is a valued customer for AIPUT. We are pleased we have been able to support and work with Servisair to rebuild their strategic cargo facility at Heathrow following the circumstances in 2010. This is testament to the efforts of the project team to deliver a striking new facility in a short period of time, allowing Servisair to maintain its high standards of customer service.”

Jason Gaskell, Executive Vice President, Servisair Cargo UK & Ireland, comments:- During the build of the new warehouse, Servisair was able to maintain its high levels of service from its temporary facilities. With the new facility now completed this will only further enhance our service offerings
