Glencar prepares to start £28m Port of Liverpool shed 

Construction of Peel Ports Group’s 240,000 sq ft shed at Alexandra Dock in Bootle is due to begin in the coming days. 

Peel has appointed Glencar to build the £28m multi-user warehouse having launched a tender for the opportunity last year. 

Multi-user warehouses are aimed at providing accommodation for several businesses at any given time and are capable of storing a variety of products on a short- or long-term basis.   

Glencar is eyeing an April 2024 completion date for the scheme. 

Peter Goodman, managing director for the Midlands and North at Glencar, said: “We understand the commercial imperative to produce sustainable and high-quality structures, often at speed, creating lasting value for asset owners and are delighted to be working for leading UK Port Operator Peel Ports to construct this multi-user warehouse development. 

“Ports serve as a critical part of the UK Supply Chain and multi-users facilities of this type contribute towards the continuation of the import and export of vital goods.” 

Peel Ports’ £28m shed is the developer’s largest investment in warehousing this year, the company said. 

The 400-metre-long facility will also benefit from 300 metres of dedicated quayside for loading and unloading cargo. 

“We’ve seen a significant increase in demand for warehousing, and this huge new facility provides an opportunity for new customers looking for capacity to grow their business,” said David Huck, chief operating officer at Peel Ports Group. 

“This also represents a very important milestone for Peel Ports Group, enhancing both our warehousing and distribution offerings while enabling more sustainable port-centric solutions.” 

He added: “We’ve long argued the benefits of the Port of Liverpool’s central location, and this new facility will also provide real cost, carbon and congestion supply chain benefits to the market.” 

Peel has already developed just shy of 1m sq ft of multi-user warehouse space at the £400m Liverpool2, part of the Port of Liverpool. 

Across the Mersey at Wirral Waters, Peel is also seeking a contractor to build a similar unit, albeit smaller, for Finsa.
