Clowes complete a 1 million square feet major distribution unit for Marks & Spencer at EMDC, Castle Donington

Marks & Spencer took occupation of their new distribution unit with its own Rail Freight Terminal in December, on time, following a twelve month construction programme.

A massive fitting out contract is now under way to make this the E commerce centre for their operations for the UK and Ireland.  The building which is 100 feet high benefits from cross docking facilities and has an excellent BREEAM rating as well as being Carbon Neutral.

Clowes employed Isherwood McCann Architects from Leicester and BWB Engineers from Nottingham as the principal designers with Winvic Construction from Northampton as Main D&B Contractors.

EMDC can still accommodate another ‘Big Shed’ of over 500,000 square feet as it is now firmly established as a prime Midlands Distribution site.  Further information can be found at
