Work starts on 97,000 sq ft Speke warehouse

Barnfield Construction has been appointed as main contractor by the site’s owner, Davos Property Developments.

When it completes in November, Speke 100 will consist of a 97,000 sq ft commercial building and a 164 ft service yard.

Ireland Design Architects drew up the plans for the scheme, which will comprise 88,000 sq ft of warehouse space and 9,000 sq ft of office space across two-storeys.

There will be 99 car and 24 trailer parking spaces provided. Secure bicycle storage and ten EV charging points will also be available to tenants.

Proposals aim to achieve a BREEAM Very Good rating and an EPC rating A.

There will also be 99 car and 24 trailer parking spaces available.

The 12-acre site is located alongside Speke Boulevard, off the A561 in Liverpool. 

Currently brownfield, the land was previously occupied by industrial warehouses.

Space at Speke 100 is available to let for approximately £8/sq ft. B8 Real Estate is the letting agent.

Jon Thorne, leader of B8 Real Estate’s agency team, commented: “With continued strong demand for industrial property from occupiers and a shortage of supply, well-funded developers are still keen to deliver much-needed stock to the market. 

“Speke 100 is one of the largest single unit facilities under construction in the area. When complete, the building will provide a high quality industrial or warehouse facility in one of the most high-profile positions in South Liverpool.”

Planning consultant Quod secured permission for Speke 100 from Liverpool City Council in October 2022. The planning application reference number is 22F/0849.

Plenty of commercial activity around this part of Speke now, the area seems to be really benefiting from the new Mersey crossing at Widnes, that said there needs to be better signage on the M56 ,as when you are travelling from the M6 there is no signage to tell you the bridge is there nor that you can access South Liverpool or the airport, strange that.

Re…Anon. That’s because the signage is too busy pointing to MCR airport.

Why did they not use the old Evans medical site next door which has been unused for ages?
