Construction of a 100,000 sq. ft. cold storage facility with internally built, temperature controlled, 28,000 pallet capacity chamber, plus service yard for 41 trailers and 75-space car park.

The scheme, Phase 5 of the firm’s development of its Heywood headquarters, marks the launch of the Yearsley Logistics Northern Superhub. The super-insulated unit – which will operate at minus 25 degrees celsius – is one the most energy efficient examples of its type in the country, built to BREEAM Very Good standard and boasts a state-of-the-art racking system.

The refrigeration system uses the best proven technologies together with intelligent controlled systems to minimise power consumption. Russells advised on the land acquisition, planning and design and completed the build within a tight nine-month construction programme to help Yearsleys meet its contract obligations. The 34-week project, from excavation to temperature pull down, benefitted from Russells past experience on several Yearsley Group schemes.
