Completion reached on a landmark 115,600 sqft speculative warehouse development in North Bristol

One of the largest single speculative warehouses to be built in Bristol has now reached practical completion at Horizon38, the landmark regeneration and employment scheme in Filton, north Bristol.

Unit G5, a 115,600 sq ft warehouse has been delivered by St Francis Group and ALMCOR with main contractor MCS Group Ltd. The property is immediately available for occupation.

The unit has been completed to a high specification, featuring 10 dock level doors, and 2 ground level doors, 50 KN/m2 floor loading, haunch height of 12m and a large secure yard, as well as a wide range of sustainable features including 6 EV charging points. The space also includes 5,600 sq ft of office space on the upper floor.

Situated within the Filton Enterprise Area, Horizon38 benefits from a ready labour supply within walking distance, the new Brabazon development, great local transport links including the MetroBus route, and accessibility to the city as well as the motorway networks.

Nigel Lax, Joint Founder of iSec Group (now Almcor), said: “Unit G5 represents the culmination of 7 years hard work on the part of Almcor and St Francis Group in regenerating the former 65 acre East Works Site and creating North Bristol’s premier business park. We are very proud of what our joint teams have achieved and look forward to successfully letting the final unit at Horizon 38”.

James Short, Associate at Avison Young, added: “Unit G5 will be a continuation of the high quality, sustainably built, speculative units developed at Horizon38, sitting alongside prestigious occupiers such as The Delivery Group and Elemis.”

“As a result of this accessibility, the size and high spec development of the new unit, the warehouse could easily act as a major industrial HQ for a local company, a strategic logistics hub servicing the region, or a facility to expand the neighbouring aerospace industries.”

Horizon38 combines industrial and distribution buildings totalling 580,000 sq ft with a further 25 acres of mixed employment space including new offices, trade warehouses, motor trade outlets with high profile occupiers including Village Urban Resorts, Volvo, GKN and CarShop.
