Altitude, Magna Park

Hydrock has supported Gazeley, a leading investor and developer of logistics and distribution sites, on the development of a large, speculative warehouse at Magna Park, Milton Keynes.  This continues our long association with the development of Magna Park which began in 2008.

Working alongside Chetwood Architects and Readie Construction, Hydrock has delivered: site due diligence, detailed design for the enabling works, civil and structural engineering design, highways and infrastructure design, flood modeling, site investigation, earthworks, drainage studies, and site supervision. 

The new building, which will have a clear height of 21m on completion, will include state-of-the-art features such as LED lighting, solar thermal heating and rainwater harvesting. The building will provide optimised natural light and power charging stations for electric vehicles using energy from solar panels and battery packs.

Energy efficiency has been fundamental to the design process, and this development goes far beyond what is required from building regulations in terms of sustainability.

Strategically located between junctions 13 and 14 of the M1, Magna Park is home to many major distribution, logistics and retail companies, and Hydrock has previously delivered the engineering design for schemes for John Lewis, Waitrose, and A G Barr on the park, amongst others. 

For over 20 years Hydrock has delivered award-winning engineering projects across a wide variety of sectors. Contact us today to find out how we can help your business.
