Steel frame goes up at Verdion’s iPort, Doncaster

Verdion has commenced structural works on the first two logistics units at its £400 million iPort development in Doncaster, South Yorkshire.

The steel frames for unit IP2a, comprising 214,850 sq ft (19,960 sq m) and Unit IP2b, totalling 131,750 sq ft (12,240 sq m), are now being erected on Phase 1 of the 700 acre (283 hectare) site, which is linked with Junction 3 of the M18 via the new FARRRS road.

The new Grade A warehouse space is specified to suit multiple users with the ability to double the initial floor area. The units are being constructed simultaneously and are scheduled for completion in May 2016.

John Clements, European Development Director at Verdion, comments: “It’s great to see the frame going up for the first two units at iPort. We have now completed the infrastructure works to the entire northern part of the site. This means we can quickly deliver an additional 2.7 million sq ft of built to suit and speculative warehouse space for potential occupiers.”

iPort is a Strategic Rail Freight Interchange (SRFI) which will deliver over 6 million sq ft (570,000 sq m) of Grade A logistics warehousing linked with a high specification rail freight intermodal container facility providing rail freight services with continental gauge clearance to all major UK ports and the Channel Tunnel. The scheme offers design and build warehouse/logistics units from 50,000 (4,645 sq m) to 1.2 million sq ft (111,480 sq m).

Gent Visick, CBRE and Cushman & Wakefield are letting agents for iPort.
