UK: ProLogis to develop new M&S distribution facility
A new, 1.1 million square-foot distribution facility is being developed for fashion to food retailer Marks & Spencer in northern England, featuring sustainable design and construction techniques.
The centre is being developed by ProLogis on a 90-acre business park near Bradford, and will include warehousing and office space, along with the training rooms, onsite catering and staff facilities.
It will employ around 2,500 people when fully operational.
The building will be built to achieve a minimum rating of Very Good under the BRE Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM), the UK's national standard for best practice in sustainable development and environmental performance.
The facility will also be developed to achieve carbon neutral status, offsetting any emissions produced during the construction process through the purchase of carbon credits and various organic reductions.
