UK engineering and construction company, VolkerFitzpatrick, has been awarded a contract by real estate agency Prologis UK to design and construct five new distribution units at Prologis Park Hemel Hempstead in Maylands Business Park.

The project is scheduled to run from March 2024 until the first quarter of 2025 and enabling works have already commenced on site.

Once completed, the development will add over 280,000 square feet of new distribution space to the business park. The units will range in size from 19,000 to 75,000 square feet.

Martin Cooper, VP of Development Management, Prologis UK, said: “It’s great to be getting this latest construction project underway at Hemel Hempstead with our trusted partner VolkerFitzpatrick.

“In the first instance, our focus is on enabling earthworks , drainage and site access construction.

“I’m looking forward to seeing our designs come to fruition throughout 2024 on this gateway site for the town.”

The new units will feature outdoor amenity areas, terraces and good walking and cycling access.

The units will also have rooftop solar arrays and target an EPC A+ and BREEAM 'Outstanding' rating, aligning with the UK Green Building Council's zero carbon in construction framework.

Stuart Deverill, managing director of VolkerFitzpatrick’s Building division, said: “I am delighted that VolkerFitzpatrick has been chosen to deliver this significant expansion.

“We have been working with Prologis for many years and our strong, collaborative approach has enabled us to deliver innovative and sustainable projects whilst setting new standards for workplace wellbeing.”
