St. Modwen Logistics, one of the UK’s leading logistics developers and managers, has completed Longbridge 155 – a £20m, 155,000 sq ft facility, which includes c. 9,500 sq ft of grade A office space and is rated as one of the most sustainable warehouses in the country.
Complete with an EPC A+ energy rating and BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ certification – placing it in the top 1% of UK non-domestic / industrial buildings for sustainability – Longbridge 155 offers occupiers significantly lower energy bills, owing to a range of energy-efficient measures.
As energy costs escalate and tariffs increase, insights from across St. Modwen Logistics’ supply chain show that Longbridge 155 could see occupiers generate more of their own energy, whilst helping them use less operationally. The roof-mounted solar generation alone could lead to savings worth in the order of £100,000 a year, when compared with similar buildings for controlled and uncontrolled energy use.
The building features 1,600m² of rooftop solar PV panels, which generates a significant proportion of clean energy used by the grade A offices that form part of the Longbridge 155, qualifying the building to be rated officially net zero carbon in operation. This PV offering also has the potential to be expanded to cover the entire roof to meet the demands of any prospective occupier.
