This building occupies the first plot to be developed on the 640-acre, Central Park warehouse and distribution estate at Severnside near Bristol. It is owned by Portland Estates Ltd, and occupied by CHEP UK Ltd a global leader in pallet and container pooling services.
Obtaining a BREEAM ‘Very Good’ rating for the development was required by CHEP as part of the company’s sustainability and marketing initiatives. It is also linked to future funding for the estate and, being the first building, it sets a benchmark for future developments to meet.
The eight-acre development comprises large external pallet storage areas and a main warehouse unit with and attached two-storey office building. The primary function of the warehouse is the processing and repair of pallets. Car parking with designated disabled parking is provided for both staff and visitors.
