The Powerhouse, Dartford
Bericote has now completed a new 304,196 sq ft logistics unit at the Powerhouse, London.
The unit will boast a superb specification, including 21m clear internal height, 55M yard depth and up to 1MVA power supply. It has been assessed to BREEAM Excellent standards, and includes 20% EV parking spaces, along with a roof ready for solar PV coverage if desired.
This development is part of a wider scheme, at the former oil and coal Power Station of the Littlebrook former power station in September 2017. Bericote embarked on a £25 million programme of demolition, remediation and infrastructure provision to serve the 120 acre site.
99% (54,000 tonnes) of material from the former power station has been recycled, with 2m tonnes of CO2 saved from the re-use of recycled materials.
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.
As part of this development, 2.3m sq ft is currently pre-let to Amazon and 450,000 sq ft pre-let to IKEA.
Strategically located on the M25 close to the Dartford Crossing, the Powerhouse has direct access to Central London and the South East.
