Located at the Gateway 14 business, innovation, and logistics park near junction 50 of the A14 at Stowmarket, Winvic commenced work in December 2022 and handed over the distribution warehouse to client Jaynic and end user The Range for fit out in November 2023.

A total of 3,730 tonnes of steel was used in creating the frame, which was erected extremely quickly for its size in just 9 weeks with up to five mobile cranes in operation at a time. In addition to the warehouse space there is a 21,300 sq ft three storey main office, two 5,100 sq ft two storey transport offices and a 8,800 sq m recycling refuse unit. We installed all the associated drainage, services, on-site road infrastructure and landscaping.

Sustainable features

Sustainability is at the core of this development, incorporating features such as electric vehicle charging stations, energy-efficient LED lighting, solar photovoltaic systems, smart energy management, and rainwater harvesting.
Biodiversity on the site was also a priority, with high-quality landscaping, green corridors and nesting boxes all being introduced across the site to support not only the wildlife and ecology but also to create a vibrant, attractive, and healthy working environment for employees.
