Caddick starts work on £100m distribution & logistics scheme
25 May 2016
Work has started on the latest element of the £100m distribution and logistics scheme Crosspoint33, near Wakefield, with Caddick Construction installing roof sheeting on the property.
The first phase of the development will be home to the new UK processing and distribution centre for TK Maxx, providing more than 1.37 million sq ft of accommodation.
The building is scheduled to complete in January 2017 and, once operational, will support up to 1,800 local jobs.
Phase two will then see the site accommodate a further 535,000 sq ft, which will be completed on a build-to-suit basis
Andrew Murray, managing director at Caddick Construction, said: "The laying of roof sheeting is progressing well, allowing us to prepare for the next major stage of build - applying the internal floor slabs.
"Crosspoint33 is a major project for Caddick Construction which will provide a huge investment boost and many new, much-needed jobs to the local area."
The project is being undertaken by Caddick Developments with sister company Caddick Construction undertaking all building works.
Specialist logistics investor Tritax has pre-brought the TK MAXX building.
