Construction work has started on the first units at a new business park, which is being masterminded by St. Modwen Logistics.

Winvic Construction has started work on the first four units at the 67-acre St. Modwen Park Derby, which is located off the A52.

It will deliver over 224,000 sq metres of cut and fill works to enable the development plots. It will also build 800 metres of new road infrastructure and create more than 20 acres of natural landscaped area.

Richard Carter, senior director for construction at St. Modwen Logistics, said: “Our partnership with Winvic strengthens as they continue to deliver St. Modwen Parks to our Swan Standard – a set of industry-leading sustainable development guidelines, with a focus on responsible building practices that meet the needs of our customers and their employees.”

Winvic project manager Adam Broadhurst said “This four-warehouse project in Derby will be delivered in quite a short space of time, but the rapid build illustrates Winvic’s ambition, our team’s experience in the infrastructure and industrial sectors and our exacting programme management skills.”

The new units are expected to be completed in phases between July and October.

Richard added: “The park will deliver BREEAM Excellent standard, demonstrating significant investment and innovation in sustainability above current regulation and practice, as well as a number of health, wellbeing and biodiversity enhancements to improve the environment for those working at the park and those living close by.”

Adam said: “Having partnered with St. Modwen Logistics on a number of occasions, we already have a great relationship with the company and we work very well together as one team, focusing on the end result.

“I’d like to thank the St. Modwen team for having confidence in our ability to transform 70 acres of brownfield land into a high-profile business park within just 10 months.”
