Graftongate starts work on new Gloucester Scheme


Graftongate has started work on the construction of a £10m Gloucester development.

Gloucester 12 sits adjacent to junction 12 of the M5 motorway. It already incorporates a 120,000 sq ft warehouse unit sold to International Plywood.

A further four units are being developed and will comprise 17,516 sq ft, 26,465 sq ft, 38,227 sq ft and 41,288 sq ft of space, incorporating a high level of sustainability.

Phil Silk, managing director of Graftongate, said: “This is the final phase of Gloucester 12, which will comprise four industrial/warehouse units totalling 123,500 sq ft.

“Having recently completed the infrastructure works and secured planning permission we have decided to speculatively build these units given the strength of the market and having identified a lack of supply particularly of the sizes being built.”

Myles Wilcox-Smith, partner at M1 agency and Edward Jenkinson, senior surveyor at Bruton Knowles, joint letting agents for the scheme, added: “These units are scheduled to be completed in November and will be constructed to a high standard, above institutional standards, to include 12m to underside of haunch for the largest unit with a substantial level of power available to the site.”
