Construction has started on a 500,000 sq ft distribution centre at Liverpool International Business Park.

 
Bolton-based construction consultancy, Vinden (Vinden), has advised UK Land & Property on the project, acting as quantity surveyor, employer’s agent, and construction, design and management coordinator.
 
The distribution site will be one of the largest in the UK and has been tipped for occupation by a national budget retailer. The warehouse includes 25,000 sq ft of office space, plus 3,500 sq ft transport control facility and additional office space. 
 
Vinden is providing cohesive services throughout the entire project, coordinating construction, infrastructure and landscaping works. It is also advising UK Land on its construction regulation compliance and health and safety issues. 
 
The project comes off the back of the completion of a £1.6m extension project for VIP Computers in Warrington, with the Industrial and Distribution sector providing a growing client base for Vinden.
 
Martin Bennett, regional director at Vinden, said: “The construction of a facility of this size and quality cements Liverpool’s status as a key distribution hub in the UK. Growth of the distribution network across the region has expanded rapidly over the last 12 months, with an increase in major companies looking to the North West for sizable, good quality warehouse space.”
