The largest and most sustainable logistics building in the North of England with a best-in-class specification, constructed as net-zero carbon in line with the UKGBC framework, and adopting the Planet Mark accreditation scheme.
Mammoth 602 is a strong example of GLP’s commitment to sustainability across its developments. It is GLP’s third building to be net zero carbon for construction, in line with the UKGBC framework, and is part of the Planet Mark accreditation scheme which helps to further reduce the carbon footprint for the occupier.
‘Built for logistics’ it offers significant additional, increased storage capacity with three additional racking heights, 37,000 additional pallet positions and one additional mezzanine over and above a standard 15M to eaves building.
In addition to an array of GLP standard sustainability features, including rainwater harvesting and a building analytics system, the development is home to unique initiatives such as the ‘Tiny Forest’. This is a collaboration with Earth Watch and Rame Consulting to establish a small, densely planted group of trees, encouraging biodiversity and carbon sequestration, whilst also acting as a wellness feature for tenants and the local community.
Chetwoods were lead architects for the design and delivery and Chetwoods Thrive team acted as Sustainability Champion ensuring GLP’s sustainability targets were reached on the project, helping to reduce carbon emissions where possible.
“Mammoth 602 offers a unique opportunity to lease a large-scale site in a prime logistics location in the North and exemplifies GLP’s innovative and comprehensive commitment to sustainability. Doncaster is already home to a variety of top-tier companies, including Next, Amazon, IKEA, B&Q and Asos, and we look forward to welcoming Maersk as a new customer.” Adrienne Howells, Senior Development Director at GLP Europe.
