Caddick Construction has started the installation of roof sheeting at the prime distribution/logistics scheme Crosspoint33, located immediately off Junction 33 of the M62 near Wakefield.
The highly anticipated, £100m scheme comprises two phases. Phase one of the development will be home to the new UK processing and distribution centre for TK Maxx, providing more than 1.37m sq. ft. of accommodation.
The building is scheduled to complete in January 2017 and, once operational, will provide up to 1,800 local jobs. The site can accommodate a further 535,000 sq. ft. of development on Phase two on a build to suit basis.
Andrew Murray, managing director at Caddick Construction, said: “We’re progressing rapidly onsite as the new aerial shots show, commuters on the A1, M62 and A162 will be seeing daily changes at this stage. 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 delivered by Caddick Developments Ltd, with sister company Caddick Construction undertaking all building works. The TK MAXX building has been forward sold to specialist logistics investor Tritax.
Caddick Developments acquires land and buildings with potential for development across commercial and residential property markets. Its wide spectrum of developments ranges from major mixed-use urban regeneration projects, large-scale industrial and office developments through to city-centre retail schemes.
