Construction will start later this year on phase one which will include road and energy infrastructure and the earthworks required to create development plots and landscape zones.
Winvic was confirmed as the design stage delivery partner by client Oxford Properties and Logistics Capital Partners (LCP) last year on the 734-acre site where 8m sq ft of commercial space is planned by 2034.
Rob Cook, Winvic’s Director of Civils and Infrastructure, said “During Early Contractor Involvement (ECI), Winvic has worked for over twelve months as the design stage partner on West Midlands Interchange and with the fantastic relationships built with Oxford Properties and Logistics Capital Partners in that time, Winvic is primed to deliver the first phase civils and infrastructure works.
“We are known for the successful delivery of similar intermodal logistics schemes, sustainable projects and employment and training opportunities to local people, so we look forward to applying our tried and tested collaborative approach to create this best-in-class logistics park and Strategic Rail Freight Interchange.”
John Pagdin, Head of UK Business, Logistics Capital Partners, added: “We are delighted to be working with Winvic again following earlier successful collaborations to deliver the UKs newest and most exciting Strategic Rail Freight Site.
“Winvic’s experience in designing and constructing similar schemes and their credentials in engaging with local and regional stakeholders will ensure that the phase one works will be delivered sustainably and collaboratively.”
Robin Everall, Head of Development, Europe at Oxford Properties, said: “Winvic possess an impressive track record of executing large-scale, complex schemes and we are pleased to welcome their expertise to the project team as we deliver a best-in-class logistics park with occupier demand, technological advancements and environmental, social and governance principles at its core.”
