Leading construction company MCS Group has announced that the construction of a multi multi-million-pound warehouse development near Gatwick Airport is now underway.
The speculative development will consist of five warehouse units and sits on the 7.7-acre site of the former Philips Research laboratories at Cross Oaks Lane, Salfords, Redhill, near the Thameslink railway line.
London-based property development company Goya Developments is the development and project manager on the scheme, which is being developed by Hillwood Properties – one of the most significant industrial real estate developers in the US.
MCS Group has completed extensive ground remediation and MCS Group’s construction director James Currie has confirmed that a complex sustainable urban drainage system will also be installed at the site.
In a statement released earlier, Mr Currie said: “This is a very high-quality development of five industrial units in what is an excellent location, just a short distance from Gatwick Airport and the M23 motorway. We are, of course, excited to be working alongside Goya Developments who have gained a reputation as one of the leading speculative developers of warehouse space.
“We’ve made a great start in preparing the site and work is progressing as expected, with practical completion scheduled for mid-October.”
