AT a time when the undersupply of large-scale, well-located, flexible industrial and warehouse space is causing occupiers to plan carefully ahead for their workspace requirements, opportunities to find such facilities are rare.

SEGRO Park Kettering Gateway is a major new development with outline planning consent to deliver up to 1.2 million square feet of industrial/warehouse space, with buildings from 50,000 to 950,000 square feet on a flexible freehold or leasehold basis. With infrastructure already in place, buildings can be developed and occupied at pace, within a timetable of nine months from start to full occupation.

Located at Junction 10 the A14 at Kettering, in the heart of the Midlands' Golden Triangle, SEGRO Park Kettering Gateway offers easy access to the major motorways, ports, railways and airports, enabling deliveries to reach over 90 per cent of the UK population within four hours. The site is adjacent to Latimer Business Park, which is home to a range of market leading brands, including Morrisons, Weetabix and Alpro.

These companies, along with many others like them, are attracted to this location not only for its connectivity, but also the local workforce. There are one million addresses inside a 30-mile radius and over 61 per cent of the population of Kettering are of working age. Furthermore, with major new urban development planned to the north of the site through the Kettering East extension, and the Kettering Energy Park to the south of the town, the area is embarking on a period of major sustained growth.

Developed to an exceptional specification, featuring the height and depth range of units demanded by modern occupiers with up to 18m eaves heights, SEGRO Park Kettering Gateway incorporates first-rate sustainability credentials, including carbon neutral build options, rainwater harvesting, solar thermal heating and a minimum BREEAM Very Good rating.

Substantial power supply is an increasingly important feature of any contemporary industrial/warehouse facility. With 10 MW of power already available and connected, SEGRO Park Kettering Gateway can offer occupiers this benefit.

Finally, occupiers will be reassured that the site is owned, developed and managed by SEGRO, a FTSE100 company synonymous with a customer-focused approach in delivering high quality, successful warehouse and light industrial properties throughout the UK and Europe.
