Logicor complete comprehensive refurbishment of Bristol logistics unit WA316

Logicor has completed the comprehensive refurbishment of WA316, its 316,128 sq ft distribution warehouse facility on the edge of Bristol.

WA316 is situated in Western Approach, a well-established distribution park, home to many blue-chip companies. Located between Junction 1 of the M48 and Junction 18 of the M5, with frontage to the M49, WA316 offers direct access to the UK’s extensive motorway network. Bristol International Airport lies 18 miles to the south and Bristol’s Avonmouth and Royal Portbury Docks are within 6 miles.

The high-quality distribution warehouse facility comprises 316,128 sq ft, inclusive of 8,889 sq ft of office space, with 13.5m clear internal height, 7 dock levellers and 14 level access doors. The site benefits from a 60m yard depth, with 100 lorry parking spaces and 174 car parking spaces.

Sam Towers, Logicor’s UK Technical Manager, says: “The works carried out, including full refurbishment of the warehouse and office space internally and externally, the removal of the redundant cooling installation and gas fired heaters and the introduction of LED lighting within the office areas, has resulted in a70% reduction in carbon emissions at WA316.”

Anthony McCluskie, Logicor’s Director, Asset Management, UK, comments: “Following the successful letting of the nearby WA248 facility, we are pleased to bring to the market another high-quality distribution warehouse in this top logistics location. The completion of the refurbishment works has taken WA316 to another level, fitting for its premier position. In an area which has a severe lack of immediately available stock of this calibre, we have already received a great deal of interest and are in discussions with a number of parties to take the Grade A space.”

Western Approach Distribution Park is the South West’s premier logistics location, with local occupiers including Tesco, DHL, Amazon, Royal Mail and Farmfoods.
