Developer lands top award for B&Q Warehouse project

Developer Gazeley’s massive B&Q warehouse scheme at South Marston has won Deal of the Year (over 50,000 sq ft) at the Industrial Agents Society (IAS) annual awards.

The 800,000 sq ft distribution centre is the largest of three units on Gazeley’s 98-acre G. Park Swindon site and was handed over to B&Q six weeks ahead of schedule in May 2011.

The hotly-contested award recognised this early completion and along with Gazeley’s ability to deliver the £70m project in just 32 weeks, part of which fell during one of the worst winters on record.

The prize was collected by Gazeley’s UK operations director Alex Verbeek at an awards ceremony in London’s Park Lane Hotel.

Alex said: “This was a tough category with some strong competition and we are delighted with the result. The project at G. Park Swindon was a key development for us in 2011 and this award is testament to the effort and dedication of the whole team involved.”

The category was sponsored by Dowley Turner Real Estate.
