Sheffield spec build set for September delivery

23 June 2020

PLP says its first net zero carbon ready speculative logistics development at its 343,000 sq ft warehouse at Smithywood, Sheffield, due to complete in September 2020.

PLP plans to deliver all future speculative builds to the UK Green Building Council’s (UKGBC) Net Zero Carbon Ready standard.

The building is also designed to promote energy efficient and low carbon operation, with solar photovoltaics and air source heat pumps and 100% LED lighting.

Further design measures including roof strengthening will allow the operator to install additional solar photovoltaics and battery storage.

Jeremy Greenland, CEO at PLP said: ‘PLP is committed to deliver best in class, sustainable and future-proof units. With a useful life of 30-50 years, producing Net Zero Carbon Ready warehouses at no extra cost to occupiers is a big step forward. Incorporating additional design flexibility to enable them to transition to Net Zero Carbon operations more cost effectively should mean our developments stand the test of time.
