Midlands-based construction contractor MCS Group has been appointed by leading industrial developer Chancerygate to deliver 11 industrial/warehouse units at Vertex Park – Bristol’s flagship out of town business destination.
MCS has started on the site, located in the Emersons Green Enterprise area, to construct three separate buildings – amounting to 107,000 sq ft in total.
The new development will provide high quality units within a business park environment, with tree-lined boulevards and generous landscaped areas. Practical completion of the scheme is scheduled for April 2019.
Tim Perkins, group construction director at MCS Group, said: “We’ve delivered similar industrial schemes for Chancerygate in recent years at locations including Bedford and Yate, so it’s great to be back on site, working alongside the development team again at Vertex Park in Bristol.”
He added: “ MCS is constructing several warehouse units at sites across the UK and has recently won contracts in Kettering, Lutterworth and Hatfield. This year we expect to deliver around 1m sq ft of industrial space across the UK. We believe the sector provides a major opportunity to establish ourselves as one of the leading contractors.”
Matthew Storr, project manager at Chancerygate, said: “We are delighted to be working again with MCS to deliver another high-quality industrial development on a very prominent site close to the centre of Bristol.”
The 4.8-acre site at Vertex Park is located four miles to the South East of Junction 19 of the M4 motorway, seven miles from the M4/M5 motorway interchange and 8.5 miles from Bristol city centre. Current occupiers at Emersons Green include vehicle leasing specialist ALD Automotive and parcel delivery business DPD.
Chancerygate specifies the latest environmentally-friendly technologies to reduce the costs of occupation. The scheme will ensure a minimum 12% decrease in CO2 emissions over 2010 Buildings Regulations. The green initiatives include low air permeability design, 15% warehouse roof lights which increases natural lighting, high performance insulated cladding and roof materials, secure cycle parking and photovoltaic cells to unit 4.
In addition to delivering warehouse/ industrial schemes, MCS has built and refurbished more than 300 car dealerships including Audi, BMW, Mclaren and Jaguar Land Rover since its inception in 2003.
