Update issued on Stallingborough development
The first building at the site is well on its way to completion, it has been announced.
Landlord North East Lincolnshire Council says it is delighted with the progress so far.
Where possible, the construction has followed a green agenda.
Discussing the green future of North East Lincolnshire, Councillor John Fenty said:
“The world has a growing green agenda and for a number different reasons, including geographical location, foresight and a vision to invest, North East Lincolnshire and the South Humber Bank is ideally placed to capitalise.
“We are determined not to let this opportunity pass us by.”
Wall and roof panels from Kingspan clad the building, with any waste steel panels and offcuts shredded and recycled in the manufacturing process.
Cardboard, metal, and vinyl waste and reprocess pallets and chipboard are also recycled into biofuel.
Other environmentally aware products include fast-drying floor screed with reduced cement content – this screed is laid thinly and, in comparison to traditional screeds, offers a 65 per cent reduction in emissions of CO2.
The completion of this build will mark a major milestone in the local authority’s ambitious South Humber Industrial Investment Programme, (SHIIP).
With a total investment pot put at approx. £42m, SHIIP represents the largest single industrial investment in North East Lincolnshire’s recent history.
