The new 50,000sq.ft logistics hub for John Lewis spearheaded construction of a development of three units at IM Properties’ newly acquired Solihull Business Park. As design team leaders, UMC Architects are working with Benniman Construction to deliver the three buildings before the end of the year, allowing John Lewis to take occupation in the run-up to their busiest period. With a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ status, an EPC ‘A’ rating and a co-ordinated BIM model, the building is designed to support the retailer’s growth in online sales.
