Giant net zero carbon ready warehouse built in Sheffield

The project was built with low-carbon materials, allows the installation of photovoltaics, air-source heat pumps and 100% LED lighting

Industrial developer PLP has announced its first net zero carbon-ready development at its 343,000 square feet warehouse at Smithywood, Sheffield.

To achieve the 'Net Zero Carbon Ready' standard, PLP has assessed carbon emissions from construction through life cycle assessment of materials and products and reduced these emissions, mainly through the inclusion of materials with a lower carbon footprint.

PLP will mitigate the remaining construction carbon emissions to net zero, by funding high-quality carbon offset projects.
