The Powerhouse, Dartford
We speculatively developed 450,000 sq ft at the former Littlebrook Power Station, now pre-let to Ikea.
This development is part of a wider scheme, following the acquisition of the Littlebrook former power station. Bericote embarked on a £25 million programme of demolition, remediation and infrastructure provision to serve the 120 acre site.
As part of this development, 2.3m sq ft is currently pre-let to Amazon and we have a 300,000 sq ft speculative warehouse ready to occupy.
During demolition of the former Littlebrook Power Station, we were able to recycle 99.1% of materials (a total of 120,624 tonnes), saving £9.1 million in landfill cost. The carbon equivalent saving in excess of 2.6million tonnes of CO2.
We set aside over 6 acres (30% of the site) for permanent open space and biodiversity improvement. We have supplied benches made by a local charity using waste timber from construction, introduced 1 million bees and enhanced the habitat for local rare shrill and carder bees. The site also includes a free employee cycle scheme.
We are proud main sponsors of community owned Dartford FC, work closely with local YMCA charity, sponsoring their community café and honestly yearly Christmas parties for kids. We had over 500 school children visit the scheme throughout construction.
