VolkerFitzpatrick wins £26m DIRFT sheds

Industrial and logistics developer Prologis UK has picked VolkerFitatrick to design and build two new production units at its Daventry International Rail Terminal (DIRFT) site.

The project is worth over £26m and will see the firm build 230,000sq ft, and 280,000 sq ft. each to 18m in height.

Work starts on site this month and will run to August 2022.

The spaces will largely be used for goods storage and will be equipped with two-storey main office accommodation, as well as smaller hub offices.

Stuart Deverill, managing director of VolkerFitzpatrick’s Building division, said that throughout the project, the team would also be taking steps to engage with the local community and minimise their environmental impact.

This will include working with supply chain contractors from the surrounding area and adjusting the finished site levels during the earthworks and groundworks phase, to eliminate removal of waste materials from site.
