Fradley Park, Lichfield
Allianz c/o AEW (Europe)
TFT was appointed as AEW’s technical adviser and project monitor to deliver this high-quality 437,000 sqft industrial facility at Fradley Park. We supported the redevelopment of the site, historically used as part of an airfield, to become a major fulfilment centre bringing 2,000 jobs to the Lichfield area following the letting to fashion giant ASOS. The redevelopment of the site has created an attractive logistics hub, notable for its size and its facilities.
Fradley Park offers a speculative 437,000sqft distribution unit with a clear height to the underside of the portal haunch of 15m. The space is arranged as 403,000sqft of warehousing, 34,000sqft of offices (22,500sqft fitted out and 10,000sqft as shell only) and 1,500sqft of ancillary warehouse offices.
A 475-space staff car park (with future spaces for expansion) is provided to the southeast. A service yard, with 80 trailer parking spaces, has access to six level access doors and 36 dock leveller positions.
TFT’s support on the scheme was oriented around technical advice and project monitoring, ensuring that the scheme progressed according to AEW’s objectives.
Specifically, our role included:
• Acting on the client’s behalf to agree the specification for the building
• Reviewing contract documents and agreements
Inspecting the site:
• Reporting on project progress
• Managing change control for the client
• Finance approval and reporting
• Monitoring and reporting on statutory applications and approvals
• Completion inspections and project close out
This high-quality development achieved a BREEAM ‘Very Good’ rating and an EPC A rating.
