The facility serves as the central receiving hub for components used in the manufacture and assembly of JCB machines, supplying the company’s plants in the UK

as well as overseas.

Environmentally friendly warehouse

Blue Planet was speculatively developed by Gazeley, achieving the world’s first BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ certification for a logistics building. It combines a highly specified warehouse with cutting edge sustainable technologies designed to reduce costs and lower carbon emissions.

Securing a blue-chip tenant

Drawing on our extensive sector insight, market knowledge and network of contacts, we provided the strategic advice that enabled Gazeley to secure a blue-chip tenant for the building. Working closely with potential occupiers, we highlighted the building’s unique sustainable proposition alongside the advantages of its specification and flexibility.
