Located in Nuneaton, this development for Baytree Logistics Properties comprises two buildings totalling close to one million square feet. Both units will be occupied by Rhenus Logistics with the first due to complete by the end of 2022 and the second due to be delivered in summer 2023.
The superstructure of the new 30,000sqft headquarters office element is constructed entirely from timber, with a Glued-Laminated Timber (Glulam) structural frame supported by Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) walls, floors and roof, making it one of the largest timber buildings currently being constructed in the UK and setting a precedent towards reducing the logistics sector’s carbon emissions.
The office users will also benefit from the aesthetic of the timber, contributing to a natural, biophilic internal environment, which has been proven to help reduce stress and increase productivity.
The project utilises BIM technologies enabling delivery of a Digital Twin for facilities management going forward. Other features include large external amenity spaces to facilitate interaction with the canal side and tranquil roof gardens.
It is estimated that there is around 1,000 metric tons of carbon sequestered in this timber frame which is equivalent to…
