Goodman continues investment in London and the South East with completion of prime M25 logistics space

Goodman has completed its latest high-specification sustainable logistics facility at Purfleet Commercial Park in Essex.

Situated in a prime position at the heart of the M25 and A13 corridors, Purfleet 343 provides easy access to London and the South East, with excellent freight links and proximity to three international ports. Ideally suited for same day delivery, the high-quality facility is located just 16 miles from Central London, placing customers in easy reach of 21 million consumers within a two-hour HGV drivetime.

Purfleet 343 is the largest warehouse available for occupation within the M25 and with an 18m clear internal height, offers customers the ability to maximise storage capacity, increase productivity and provide for future growth. Its “chill store” ready building envelope also makes it suitable for both chilled and ambient storage, benefitting customers from a wide range of industries including the logistics, FMCG and food production sectors.

In line with Goodman’s focus on sustainability, the high-specification unit is built to a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ specification and boasts an A+ (-3) Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), generating more energy than the base building consumes. Other features include a 995kWp solar PV system to service customers’ operational needs, infrastructure for electric vehicle fleets, rainwater harvesting and smart metering – all helping to achieve energy and cost savings as well as support customers’ sustainability goals.

Customers will benefit from access to a large local talent pool, with more than 35,000 people working in logistics, while also joining the likes of Tesco, Unilever, DHL, Ocado and Amazon in operating nearby.

George Glennie, Development Director at Goodman, said:

“Having sustainable warehouses located close to consumers is key to optimising supply chain efficiency. Purfleet 343’s benefits go beyond its prime location. By investing in sustainable technology and offering additional features such as 4MVA, this facility is highly adaptable to suit a customer’s specific business needs and is future-ready for evolving innovation.”

Purfleet 343’s sustainability features extend beyond the building itself to help support the health and wellbeing of the people working there. Set within a landscaped environment, there are outdoor seating areas, a running track, and footpaths and cycleways connected with the local area.

Goodman’s latest facility forms part of its focus on London and the South East, with the ability to deliver up to 2.5 million sq ft of industrial and logistics space in the region. Other recent investments include Crossways Commercial Park in Dartford and London Brentwood Commercial Park in East Horndon.
