Leading logistics specialist Rhenus Warehousing Solutions UK and developer Baytree Logistics Developments have celebrated the roof being installed on one of its warehouses at its new, sustainable development at Baytree, Nuneaton.
The development will be referred to as the ‘Rhenus Campus’, and provide customers with innovative warehousing and distribution services.
The site will feature two warehouses, totalling one million square feet – the equivalent of 36 football pitches. The first warehouse measures 210,000 square feet and the second warehouse will follow in early 2023, measuring 771,000 square feet. The vast size of the warehouses, coupled with the latest emerging technologies, will ensure that Rhenus can accommodate customers well into the future.
The ‘Rhenus Campus’ will be certified BREEAM Outstanding upon completion and achieve carbon neutrality. The use of renewable energy generated on-site will ensure the development is climate neutral, helping customers achieve their own carbon-zero goals.
Rhenus and Baytree are working with a local timber mill to recycle felled trees from the site, making them into furniture for the employees to enjoy, and bat and bird boxes for the local wildlife, ensuring nothing goes to waste.
Regional Managing Director North-West Europe at Rhenus Warehousing Solutions UK, Kerry Delaney, said: “We are thrilled to have celebrated this roofing ceremony at Baytree, Nuneaton, with our development partner Baytree. This is a hugely important milestone for us, and we’re very excited that the warehouse’s structure for site one has now been completed. We’re looking forward to officially opening the ‘Rhenus Campus’ in 2023, and to continuing to provide our innovative warehousing solutions.”
UK Development Director at Baytree, Amit Babbar, said: “Baytree is delighted to have reached this important milestone in the development. Rhenus and Baytree Teams are working hard together to bring this cutting-edge project to fruition within a very swift timeframe so that Rhenus can serve their customers from the new facilities flexibly and efficiently. It is invigorating for Baytree to play its part in creating this new development for Rhenus which sets new benchmarks in environmental and social responsibility.”
Rhenus offers its customers much more than just a ‘paid-for’ service, and the new site will enable the logistic supplier to easily meet growing demand and exceed customers’ expectations.
