Valley Industrial Park, Croydon
This industrial development completely revitalised a derelict brownfield site in Croydon, delivering an additional access road and accommodation for eight new industrial units
We recently completed the comprehensive redevelopment of the former Stewart Plastics site in Croydon and delivered eight new warehouse/industrial units totalling 60,800 sq.ft. The site is split into two parcels of land by a newly proposed road, which provides additional access to Valley Retail & Leisure Park. The units all have separate customer and staff car parking areas with clear divisions for delivery vehicles with their main access also via the new link road.
The design rationale responds to the requirements of modern industrial operators and takes on board feedback received during the planning process, addresses the site constraints and provides a contemporary response to the requirements of the proposed use. A thoughtfully applied elevational treatment enhances the legibility of the scheme, defining each unit with a pronounced entrance whilst retaining a consistent architectural language across the proposed development. The scheme achieved the following eco-credentials: BREEAM Excellent (shell only), net-zero development (with carbon offset scheme) and has an EPC ‘A’ rating.
