This 368,000 SF (34,200 SQM) BREEAM “Excellent” accredited warehouse is part of a 1.52 MSF logistics park on the site of a former sewage waste treatment plant for the nearby Minworth Sewage Works. The abandoned site contained 103 sludge drying beds, which had been inactive for over 20 years, allowing the accumulated waste to emit greenhouse gases—methane and nitrous oxide—into the atmosphere. After agreeing to a site remediation strategy with Birmingham City Council and the Environment Agency, Prologis reclaimed the land for development. The project included stabilizing 70,000 cubic meters of raw sewage in the drying beds. Prologis also constructed an environmental buffer zone, running alongside the River Tame, which forms the south-eastern boundary, as well as structural landscaping to the rear of adjoining homes on Park Lane to the north. The new environmental buffer not only supports a habitat for voles, bats, birds and other wildlife, it also serves as a flood storage compensatory scheme.
