Three new speculative buildings have reached practical completion at SEGRO’s Slough Trading Estate.

The new developments in the Simplified Planning Zone will bring 50,000 sq ft of industrial space, each achieving BREEAM Excellent rating.

One unit of 8,901 sq ft is at 445 Malton Avenue and two further units, one of 17,824 sq ft and one of 24,076 sq ft, are in Bedford Avenue.

The Malton Avenue unit has been fitted with 72 smart sensors which collect data including temperature levels, sound, pressure, energy usage and air quality.

SEGRO’s managing director for the Thames Valley, James Craddock, said: “Bringing forward the development of three new speculative units highlights the ongoing demand for modern, sustainable industrial space that is well located in the Thames Valley.

“Under the Simplified Planning Zone, we have been able to continue the modernisation of the Slough Trading Estate to ensure that we can offer new and potential customers the space they need in order to grow their businesses and meet the needs of their customers.

“The use of smart technology is becoming increasingly prevalent across industrial property and the role data plays in improving buildings is incredibly exciting, especially as it results in greater levels of wellbeing and sustainability.”

Agents acting for SEGRO are Cushman & Wakefield and JLL.
