Construction starts at 500,000 sq ft warehouse

Work has begun on the construction of a 500,000 sq ft distribution centre at UK Land & Property's Liverpool International Business Park.

The unit is tipped to be occupied by national budget retailer B&M.

The Vinden Partnership, Bolton, is advising UK Land & Property on the project, acting as quantity surveyor, employer's agent, and construction, design and management coordinator.

The warehouse includes 25,000 sq ft of office space, plus a 3,500 sq ft transport control facility and additional office space.

Liverpool International Business Park is a 157-acre site near the Speke and Garston Coastal Reserve.

TVP is providing a range of services throughout the project, coordinating construction, infrastructure and landscaping works.

It is also advising UK Land on its construction regulation compliance and health and safety issues.

Martin Bennett, regional director at The Vinden Partnership, said: "The construction of a facility of this size and quality cements Liverpool's status as a key distribution hub in the UK.

"Growth of the distribution network across the region has expanded rapidly over the last 12 months, with an increase in major companies looking to the North West for sizeable, good quality warehouse space."
