GMI Construction has linked up with Tritax Symmetry to develop two huge logistics/warehouse accomodation at MA6NITUDE in Middlewich.

Our North West operations team have made an impressive start to the development of the Cheshire East site which will soon see the area transformed into 190,000 sq ft of units.

Groundworks are well underway and on target, with the final touches of the attenuation tanks being installed.  Our compound is also being setup to new GMI Construction brand guidelines as we make our mark in the business district and surrounding area.

Units (11, 149,000 sq ft and 12, 41,000 sq ft) will be net zero carbon in their construction and when complete, 15% of the roofs will be covered in solar panels with the ability for the roofs to be fully covered in photovoltaic panels future.

Marc Banks, Divisional Managing Director at GMI Construction, said: “We are delighted to be working with Tritax Symmetry to deliver the new facilities in Middlewich. Our team has made an excellent start and the site is already taking shape to what will eventually be a first-class sustainable building that will be a huge business asset to the area.”

David Nuttall, Development Director at Tritax Symmetry, said: “We are excited to see spades go in the ground here at MA6NITUDE and bring forward high quality facilities at a time when demand for space is at record levels.

“There is a huge amount of activity happening across the site, with Swizzels’ facility also due to complete next year and detailed planning submitted for 238,000 sq ft of space at unit 41 which could also be delivered before the end of 2022.”

Jonathan Atherton, Director at Savills, joint letting agents for the scheme with B8RE and Legat Owen, added: “The development at M6nitude will provide much needed floor space to a market when supply is falling at its fastest ever rate. The location and quality of the units are expected to attract strong occupier interest.”

This scheme is being delivered by GMI’s expert operations team including Project Manager, Dan Meadowcroft, Site Manager, Rebecca Shiels, Site Engineer, James Rushton, and supported by Construction Director, Anthony Judge.
