Since 2010, Bericote Properties have been Asda Wal-Mart’s preferred UK developer for their distribution facilities.
Since our partnership began, we have constructed over 3m sq. ft. across the UK for a range of facilities from Regional Distribution Centres, to Internet Fulfilment centres and Return & Recycling units.
Asda chose us as their preferred UK warehouse developer for our open book approach; our ability to respond to situations quickly; our company structure allows us to make prompt decisions; our high quality development and procurement expertise and our ability to purchase sites on their behalf.
Sainsbury’s – Thameside Depot, Charlton
After a competitive tender involving the world’s largest warehouse developers, Bericote were chosen as a preferred partner to redevelop an ageing and inefficient 1960’s warehouse to a modern state of the art facility for Sainsbury’s.
Sainsbury’s had a 99 year lease on the property with only 40 years remaining which contained draconian terms.
Bericote negotiated around the complicated legal issues with the landlord in order to obtain permission for the redevelopment with no extra rental cost and on lease terms which are more agreeable lease terms.
Bericote obtained planning through delegated powers ahead of time, and demolished the old concrete framed building and construct a 250,000 sq. ft. state of the art warehouse, housing frozen, chilled and ambient chambers, which is dedicated to serving Sainsbury’s 200 convenience stores throughout South London.
Rolls Royce Motor Cars
Bericote were invited by Rolls Royce Motor Cars to tender for the site acquisition and procurement of two new fulfilment centres totalling 410,000 sq ft on the south coast, close to their Head Quarters in Goodwood, Chichester.
Bericote were selected over 5 other major UK and Global developers as the preferred partner to procure the facility.
Having secured the site and acquired the planning consent, the facility was completed in September 2015 and handed over to Rolls Royce already fully fitted with racking, heating and lighting.
