Great Bank Road, Panattoni


480,000ft² Industrial Scheme for Europe’s Largest Logistics Developer.

We have been appointed by Panattoni, the largest developer of logistics facilities in Europe, to design and deliver 480,000ft² of industrial floorspace on a 9.92-hectare brownfield site at Wingates Industrial Estate, Bolton.

The hybrid planning application, which comprises a full application for an 80,000ft² unit pre-let to Hermes and a speculative 283,000ft² unit, plus an outline application for a residual plot capable of accommodating a further 45,000ft² of industrial space, all with associated, carparking, servicing and landscaping. The buildings complement and enhance the existing industrial estate’s offering, creating appeal to a wide range of potential tenants, which in turn will increase economic and employment growth in the local area.

Our proposals are in line Panattoni’s highly developed design principles, tailored to suit the specific location, including taking key considerations into account such as retention of woodlands and have been carefully designed to avoid noise impacts on nearby residential areas.

The scheme will achieve a BREEAM ‘Very Good’ rating, incorporating passive design principles such as building orientation, form, layout / internal organisation, solar gain / shading, daylighting and the size and position of apertures to minimise energy use and thereby reduce carbon emissions.
