Plus, as a brand-new build, it offers the potential to incorporate cutting-edge technology, improving efficiency and playing a part in environmental sustainability.

Key Design and Sustainability Features

The Connect-70 warehouse, a sprawling 72,733 sqft development situated on a 4.13-acre site, has been designed with sustainability at its core. It aims to achieve EPC A and BREEAM 'Very Good' ratings, and it embodies several sustainable features, including EV charging points, a roof-mounted Photovoltaic system, and Air Source Heat Pumps.
