Winvic Construction Ltd, a leading main contractor that specialises in the design and delivery of multi-sector construction and civil engineering projects has been appointed by IM Properties to deliver phase three of Hinckley Park. Winvic has returned to the 82-acre Hinckley Park to construct the speculative 340,000 sq ft logistics and manufacturing unit with IM Properties targeting Net Zero Ready in line with the UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) framework.
The delivery of Hinckley 340 is on the remaining 18 acres at Hinckley Park, located next to Junction 1 of the M69. The park is home to DPD who has one of Europe’s largest and most technically advanced parcel depots and a 532,000 sq ft unit let to Amazon. Winvic constructed both of these facilities.
Winvic will be constructing the BREEAM Excellent and EPC A rated Hinckley 340 in line with the UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) framework for IM Properties to target Net Zero Ready by achieving Net Zero in Construction and introducing renewable tech into the building specification.
The unit has two-storey office space totalling 14,000 sq ft, a 3,000 sq ft pod office, a haunch height of 15m, 30 docks, and parking for 305 cars and 54 HGVs.
Winvic commenced earthworks for this next phase at Hinckley Park in September 2022 and will conclude the contract with the final landscaping works in November 2023. In addition to Hinckley 340, phase three will also include two other, Net Zero Ready smaller buildings of 47,000 sq ft and 60,000 sq ft.
Working in partnership, Winvic and IM Properties continue to play an active role in the community, committing through an Employment and Skills Charter to provide training and employment opportunities for local businesses and individuals during construction.
Winvic’s Head of Industrial, Distribution and Logistics, Danny Nelson, commented: “Our relationship with IM Properties continues to go from strength to strength, and once again we’re delighted the leading developer has put its trust in us to construct a new industrial and manufacturing facility with sustainability at its heart. We work extremely well together due to our values being aligned – from meeting quality and commercial goals to social value and sustainability targets – and the whole team is looking forward to completing the remaining external works in June and the unit in late 2023.”
Jason Jasper, UK Project Director at IM Properties said: “The increased transparency required for all businesses on the sustainability front allows Hinckley 340 to aid occupiers in futureproofing their operations ahead of regulation and set a benchmark within their own sectors. As a major investor in the Midlands, we hope to use our influence to help set industry standards and work alongside our occupiers and supply chain to create positive change and reduce carbon emissions.
“Winvic is part of our trusted supply chain and has worked in partnership with us across our schemes to deliver our sustainability ambitions and we are delighted to be working with them on Hinckley Park to deliver our next level of targets in line with our Sustainable Futures framework.”
