Ground broken at green building scheme

15 February 2023

Commercial real estate investor and developer, Firethorn Trust, has broken ground at its Sherburn42 development, which will see the creation of 660,000 sq ft of logistics warehousing space in North Yorkshire.

Sitting adjacent to the Sherburn Enterprise Park in Leeds, the 37-acre scheme is being delivered by McLaren Construction Group and will be ready for occupation from Q3 2023.

Comprising four highly specified Grade-A industrial units, ranging from 57,750 to 280,000 sq ft, Sherburn42 will be accredited by the UK Green Building Council for its net-zero carbon construction, with a design that looks to help occupiers reach their own operational sustainability targets.

Rated BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and ‘WELL-ready’, the enhanced specification also features full PV coverage and LED lighting to offices, in addition to existing and future EV charging capabilities. Benefiting from up to 4MvA power, plans include eaves heights of 15m to haunch, 11 ground-level access doors and 633 parking spaces.

McLaren Construction Midlands & North managing director Gary Cramp, says: “The units will suit multi-national distributors and ambitious SMEs. The project team is working hard to reduce the embodied carbon in the project, to ensure our client’s offset payment is as low as possible.”
