MK’s most sustainably built factory/warehouse completed
BLU Milton Keynes, a new 31,500 sq ft (2,926m²) production and warehouse facility developed jointly by Secklow Asset Management and Buccleuch Property is ready for occupation. Built on a 1.6 acre site at Wolverton Mill that was acquired from Milton Keynes Development Partnership (MKDP), the property has achieved sector-leading performance in sustainability.
The developers and their building contractor, Parkway Construction, have focused not only on producing a prestige building, which could accommodate a wide range of occupiers, but also on how to produce a building with highly sustainable credentials. This has given the city its first factory with an Energy Performance Certificate rating of A and a BREEAM Excellent rating for its environmental, social and economic performance.
Charles Macdonald, MKDP’s Chief Executive says: “This is the first building of this type to have been built in Milton Keynes for more than ten years. It is great to see the developers’ vision come to fruition and we hope that it will attract new business and jobs to the city.”
Richard Parrott, Secklow’s Managing Director says: “We have enjoyed designing and building a modern factory that sets new industry standards and look forward to working with this team again for our next project.”
Jonathan Whittle, Partner of agent for the property Louch Shacklock comments: “Occupiers will benefit from reduced running costs, a production area designed to maximise operational efficiency, fully fitted offices and secure parking for cars and lorries.”
