Practical Completion has been awarded to the new urban logistics centre for DHL at SEGRO Park Newham. Michael Sparks Associates were the architects for this 51,474 sq ft modern and carbon-neutral facility, strategically located to enable the occupier to enhance its last mile service in East London. The scheme has exceeded the development agreement with the GLA and requirements in the London Plan through the incorporation of sustainability features, including an EPC A+ (carbon neutral) rating through photovoltaic cells, providing solar energy to power DHL’s electric vehicle fleet, and sensors within the building to manage utilisation and the environmental, energy and plant performance.

The new facility offers a sustainable and flexible addition to the SEGRO Park Newham development, which is being delivered as part of the East Plus initiative between SEGRO and the Greater London Authority. The partnership will see 86 acres of derelict and underused land across Newham, Barking & Dagenham, and Havering, developed in to 1.4 million sq ft of modern industrial space over a 15-year period.
