Firethorn Trust raises the bar at Leighton Buzzard Logistics Scheme


Ascent Logistics Park hit an important milestone this month, with the structural steelwork now erected across the site. As work continues at pace, the first phase of eight highly-specified units, ranging from 14,140 – 123,490 sq. ft., is on track for completion later this year.

The development has been accredited by the UK Green Building Council for its net-zero carbon construction, which is being delivered by Winvic Construction Ltd. Designed to attract a diverse range of occupiers, Ascent is set to create approximately 150 jobs and bring economic benefits to the wider region.

Chris Webb, Partner at Firethorn Trust said: “It has been exciting to see the steelworks steadily take shape across the site, so this is a significant milestone for Firethorn. Ascent Logistics Park is an ambitious development, set to bring vital investment, economic growth and employment opportunities to the region, whilst providing occupiers with high-quality, sustainable warehousing solutions that will support their immediate operational needs, as well as future market requirements.”

Designed with sustainability, wellbeing and productivity front of mind, Ascent Logistics Park will incorporate cutting-edge renewable technologies and feature generous outdoor spaces and employee welfare facilities.
