Major development at EMDC

Clowes have agreed what may become THE Property Deal of 2011, providing a custom built 1,000,000 sq ft ‘state of the art’ distribution unit with dedicated Rail Freight Terminal for Marks & Spencer plc, at East Midlands Distribution Centre, Castle Donington. M&S are making a long term commitment to the site by taking a 25 year lease on the building.

The building is being constructed to a BREEAM Excellent standard in accordance with M&S’s ‘green’ credentials. Works have commenced on site on a fast track programme scheduled for completion by Christmas 2011, with Clowes employing Winvic Construction as their Main Contractor.

EMDC has been planned to provide large distribution units and this will be the eighth building on site to be occupied.
