Onsite construction works are well under way at Brunel Road where UMC Architects have been appointed by McKay Securities PLC to deliver the detailed design of a new speculative distribution development at Theale Logistic Park, in Reading.
Located adjacent to junction 12 of the M4, five miles from the centre of Reading, Theale Logistic Park’s strategic position is attractive to a diverse range of potential occupiers such as online retailers, third party logistics operators and last mile distributors. The location is already an established logistics hub with local occupiers including Amazon, Bunzl, Direct Wines, Ikea and John Lewis.
The new facility offers a total footprint of 146,335sqft including 13,326sqft of mezzanine office accommodation and comprises a clear internal height of 14m, security gatehouse and service yard providing access to a mix of both dock leveller and level access loading doors.
The project is also designed to incorporate a BREEAM Excellent rating in addition to providing 20% carbon emissions reduction via the application of VRF condensers and a roof-mounted photo-voltaic array.
