Infrastructure works begin at Symmetry Park Kettering

Buckingham Group Contracting Ltd (Buckingham) has commenced the infrastructure works at Symmetry Park, Kettering, after gaining reserved matters planning consent for the initial phase.

Located on Junction 9 of A14, the Park has outline consent for up to 2.3 million sq ft in total and can deliver a single building of 1.3 million sq ft. Buckingham is now on site delivering a fully serviced plateau of 90 acres, with estate road and utilities to suit a range of build to suit requirements.

Jonathan Wallis, development director at Tritax Symmetry, said: “This marks another important step forward for our portfolio. The infrastructure works will be completed early next year meaning we can deliver new logistics buildings of up to 1.3 million sq ft by the end 2022.

“In line with our net zero carbon pledge, all of these new buildings will be delivered to net zero carbon in construction.”

Joint agents for the scheme are Burbage Realty and BNP Paribas Real Estate.

Dean Warman, Buckingham’s Managing Director – Civil Engineering, said: “We are delighted to be working with Tritax Symmetry to deliver this new logistics park which is great news for both the UK and local economies. In support of Tritax Symmetry’s sustainability pledge we are doing all we can to maximise the procurement of materials and services from local sources.”

Councillor Jason Smithers, Leader of North Northamptonshire Council, said: “This initial stage of Symmetry Park, Kettering is positive news for the area. It will provide local job opportunities, help boost the local economy and has the potential to develop local skills.

“It shows that we are open for business and that companies have the confidence to continue to invest in the area. The developer’s aim for net zero carbon construction of the new buildings is equally welcome.

“Symmetry Park is consistent with our aim to encourage responsible growth, develop local employment opportunities, skills and economy, and tackle climate change.”
