Approval for Black Country industrial scheme
16 December 2022
Approval for the development of new industrial accommodation on a vacant plot of land at Electrium Point in Willenhall has been granted.
Hortons’ is set to develop a trio of new industrial units at a combined 40,000 sq ft. The largest of the three buildings will be a 20,000 sq ft industrial/warehouse unit, and we will be developing two additional units of 10,000 sq ft each, which can be combined to form a single, larger space.
The scheme will benefit from strong sustainability credentials, including photovoltaic roof panels and EV charging stations, with Hortons’ targeting an EPC ‘A’ rating. Other features will include 50 kN/m2 floor loading capacities, 8m clear heights and level access doors.
James Slater, head of building surveying and development at Hortons’, said that work on the new developments would start in Q1 2023, with the project programmed for completion in Q4 2023.
He said: “Electrium Point is a popular and established industrial location, with good road links and a strong list of existing tenants. We have earmarked the development of this vacant plot of land as a means of expanding the accommodation available at the complex. Local market demand continues to outstrip the supply of small industrial units of this type and we’re confident that there will be significant occupier interest in the scheme.”
We acquired Electrium Point in 2003 and have since developed accommodation on the complex on behalf of Walsall Council and West Midlands Ambulance Service.
The site is located approximately one mile from Willenhall town centre and less than two miles from Jct 10 of the M6 via Clarke’s Lane (A462) and Wolverhampton Road West (B4464). Wolverhampton city centre lies c.3 miles to the west and Walsall town centre is c.3 miles to the east.Back to news
