Property group Eddisons has completed a renovation project to create a new 18,500 sq ft ‘last-mile’ delivery hub in North West London for pan-European tech logistics business Stuart Delivery. Part of DPD Group, the high-tech firm provides scheduled and on-demand food, grocery and retail deliveries to urban areas using a managed fleet and local independent couriers.
Eddisons director Nick Galloway and building surveyor James Barker of the firm’s building and project consultancy team acted on behalf of Stuart to undertake a pre-lease schedule of condition for the firm’s new premises at Standard Road in London’s Park Royal area.
Eddisons also developed a bespoke space plan together with a repair and fit out specification, commissioning new fencing, automatic barriers and gates, and superfast EV charging stations for Stuart’s electric delivery fleet.
New fire alarm installation, LED lighting, corporate signage and electrical enabling works for conveyor systems were also incorporated. Organising building regulations approvals via an approved inspector, the firm also undertook full contract administration and principal designer duties.
Eddisons’ James Barker said: “Stuart’s management team shared our enthusiasm for bringing the property back into use, maximising the sustainability features of the premises and bringing them into a compliant state for the new business operation.”
Stuart retail logistics director Marcus Hurd said: “Working with the whole team at Eddisons was great. They took time to understand our business vision and the resulting priorities for this operating site and how it might be developed.
“We received fantastic advice, allowing the plans for the site to be streamlined and costs controlled, whilst at the same time ensuring the renovations had maximum positive impact on both the environment and the people using the site.”
Since it was founded in Paris in 2015 Stuart has transformed rapid urban delivery and focuses on state-of-the-art technology and both environmental and social sustainable logistics practices.
