Gateway 4 is the development of a 13-hectare site which will include a new 408,961 ft² speculative industrial unit located in Armthorpe, Doncaster. This brand new facility includes an internal three storey office in addition to an external two storey hub office. The warehouse and distribution areas are a shell fit-out with provision to allow service installations to be undertaken by the tenant, and office areas are fitted out to CAT A. The building is primarily intended for logistical use with 38 loading bays, up to 55m yard depth space, and extensive lorry parking facilities for up to 83 HGVs.

Cundall provided multi-disciplinary engineering services, including building services engineering, sustainability and acoustic consultancy. Strict planning conditions meant carbon emissions had to be minimised by reducing energy consumption by 10%, hence our engineering teams undertook a fabric first approach from the design and development process which enhanced the building envelope. The use of a heat pump system to provide heat to the office area, circumvented the need for more costly technologies and played a key role in improving energy performance.

Eddie Allen,
Electrical Building Services Associate, commented “This is a cutting-edge industrial hub from the spacious warehouse to the generous open plan office spaces, every detail is meticulously designed for efficiency, functionality, and safety - shaping the future of industrial development with innovation and sustainability at the forefront.”

Key fact

We used a 3D noise model to assess unit sound levels according to BREEAM 2018 and relevant standards. Projecting future levels, factoring in potential traffic changes, we proposed mitigation strategies to minimise impact on nearby sensitive areas.


Key fact

The development achieved an EPC rating of B.
