The latest iPort development involves the construction of five new units, including an 848,250 sqft warehouse facility that would become one of the largest logistics units ever developed in the UK
Property, construction and management consultancy RLB has been appointed to support the last phase of development at iPort in South Yorkshire.
The company will provide services including employer's agent, project manager, quantity surveying and pre-contract principal designer at Verdion's multimodal logistics hub in Doncaster.
The RLB team has a long-standing working relationship with Verdion with its engagement on iPort starting in 2014.
The latest iPort development involves the speculative construction of five new units, including an 848,250 sqft warehouse facility that would become one of the largest speculative logistics units ever developed in the UK.
Adam Clay, Verdion account lead and RLB's logistics and manufacturing sector lead for Yorkshire and Humber, said: "Continuing our relationship with Verdion on the iPort logistics hub is significant in terms of how it helps bridge the gap between demand and supply of high quality, agile logistics space in Yorkshire and nationally.
"These new buildings deliver the additional capacity this market clearly needs while at the same time creating new employment in the region through both the build and the operation of this space."
Verdion executive director John Clements added: "This is a major investment that underlies our unwavering confidence in both iPort and the UK market. Demand for high quality, efficient space in strategic locations remains extremely strong and this programme addresses the current scarcity in the Yorkshire market and further afield head on.
"Certainty of delivery is crucial and working with partners like RLB, who have local knowledge, backed with national capability, enables us to undertake speculative development with trust and confidence."
