Ultra-urban industrial development begins to bloom

Construction of an ultra-urban development of five industrial units in Brixton is underway, main contractor MCS Group has announced.

MCS Group has been appointed by Bloom Developments to deliver the 35,417 sq ft of Grade A, purpose-built, industrial space at 146-156 Brixton Hill and 5/6 Waterworks Road.

The developers are targeting BREEAM Excellent, EPC A+, for the units, which range in size from 3,910 sq ft to 11,112 sq ft. They will use renewable energy from solar photovoltaic panels on roofs and provide lorry, car and cycle electric vehicle charging points.

MCS Group has completed the demolition of existing industrial buildings on the site to make way for two new buildings which will be sub-divided into five units. They will feature operational space across the ground and first floors, with goods lift access and self-contained yards.

Keir Edmonds, managing director at MCS Group, said: “We are thrilled to have been appointed by Bloom Developments to deliver this very high quality industrial development in the heart of Brixton. Having cleared the site, we are now in a position to begin construction and we are scheduled to reach completion before the end of the year.”

Sam McGirr, co-founder of Bloom Developments, said: “Bloom Brixton is the complete solution for any occupier seeking high quality industrial space with immediate access to central London. We are excited to see construction begin on site and looking forward to working alongside MCS Group to deliver an outstanding ultra-urban industrial development. We are working hard to deliver high-quality and design-led industrial and logistics schemes in supply-constrained inner London sub-markets.”
