Benniman has been chosen to build a new 95,000 sq ft industrial/warehouse unit at Optimus Point in Leicester for a new state of the art distribution centre.

The £8.5 million project will see the construction of a new unit with ancillary office space at Plot 20 near Jct 21a of the M1 motorway, on behalf of Hamdon Gate Developments.

Designed by Stephen George and Partners LLP, it will target BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and EPC A.

Benniman will commence construction of the new unit following completion of earthworks and balancing ponds. The project is expected to take around 35 weeks to complete.

Steven Smith, managing director of Benniman, said: “We are very pleased to have been appointed again by Hamdon Gate Developments to deliver this highly sustainable unit in Leicester. Earthworks have already commenced.
