Fletcher-Rae has been appointed by Bowmer and Kirkland for the design and build delivery stage of a massive warehouse and distribution facility comprised of a custom 360,000ft² building with associated service yards and office space. This follows successful planning approval made by Fletcher-Rae on behalf of Muse Developments.
The site, known as Logic Leeds, is located on the northern edge of the Leeds City Region Enterprise Zone, which is supported by Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP), Leeds City Council, the Department of Communities and Local Government.
Andrew Rae, Co-Founder of Fletcher-Rae, details the firm’s appointment on the project.
“This latest appointment on the Logic Leeds development maintains Fletcher-Rae’s ongoing involvement on the project, following planning consent being granted, through to completion and overseeing delivery from an architectural point of view, working with external partners to ensure all components are being executed to the highest standards.
The technical delivery teams at Fletcher-Rae are strong and this trend of remaining on projects whilst work is being carried out is becoming increasingly common with the larger builds we’re involved with.”
The industrial site is situated off Pontefract Lane (A63) close to junction 45 of the M1 motorway. It is being developed for technology distributor Premier Farnell after they have outgrown their current facilities in Armley in Leeds. Once complete the site will stock over 420,000 products and provides the foundation for continued growth.
This new build is set to be the one of the largest warehouse development in Leeds city area and will support jobs in the region. Work started on site early February 2018 and the distribution warehouse is scheduled to be complete by the end of this year.
