Work starts on Logicor’s Little Hulton warehouse

Main contractor Glencar has begun construction on a 330,000 sq ft shed for the developer.

Logicor’s Bolton 330 is on track for completion in the last quarter of 2025, with work scheduled to take place over 54 weeks on the 20-acre site off Lester Road. The demolition of the former Littlewoods and Very Group buildings that formerly occupied the site is already finished.

Despite its moniker, Bolton 330 sits within the planning remit of Salford City Council, which signed off the plans in February.

The industrial building will feature 311,500 sq ft of warehouse space and another 13,000 sq ft for three storeys of offices. There would also be a separate 2,000 sq ft hub office with a green roof to boost biodiversity. The project was designed by Webb Gray.

When complete, Logicor hopes its complex will achieve a BREEAM Outstanding score and an EPC A rating – a target that fits in with its push to achieve 36% carbon reduction by 2030.

Helping its sustainability credentials, the plans for the warehouse include LED lighting, rainwater harvesting, EV charging points, and solar panels. There will also be an outdoor gym.

Matt Storr, development director at Logicor UK, said: “We’ve continued to see demand for sustainable assets in prime locations grow.

“This development has strong sustainability credentials, which paired with the connectivity of its central location, makes it a unique and compelling offer on the market,” he continued.

Storr also added that he was glad to be working with Glencar on Bolton 330, which is the first time the contractor and developer have teamed up.

“They put forward an impressive programme featuring a host of sustainable construction practices and we look forward to seeing them in action and working closely together,” Storr said.

Glencar chief executive Eddie McGillycuddy took a moment to praise Logicor and its 32.3m sq ft portfolio in the UK and further abroad.

“Logicor’s extensive presence across the UK and Europe, with properties and development sites situated in key strategic locations, close to major population centres and key distribution hubs, enables them to keep their customers’ goods moving through the supply chain and into society, every day,” he said.

“Glencar is proud to now become an integral part of the network and to be supporting Logicor’s UK asset redevelopment programme, appointed to transform this old redundant site into a modern, state-of-the-art, highly sustainable warehouse.

“This development is also key in terms of Logicor’s stated aim to redevelop existing assets to support reaching the business’ ambitious sustainability target of a 36% carbon reduction by 2030”.
