Boulevard Industry Park
Boulevard Industry Park forms a major element of the Speke Garston regeneration programme. Austin-Smith:Lord undertook the masterplanning role for the site and also developed the landscape infrastructure through detail design to implementation. The main spine road was designed to produce a strong, consistent, unifying image linking the various developments proposed for the site. The spine road also incorporated a section of the Transpennine Trail, with its own unique, yet contextual design approach.
Our challenge was to deliver not just one “machine” for production and delivery, but six on one route. Not only critical logistics, but a standard building design that responds to functional need and is precisely cost predictable. In addition, the external environment reflects and reinforces Jaguar Land Rover’s brand.
We developed a family of high throughput facilities in a road-based logistics system designed for multiple redundancy and failure. The facilities allow for system retro-fit without interruption of operations.
Occupiers include Evans Vaccines, Conix, Lear Corporation, Coughlin Logistics, Medeva (Medimmune), Visteon, Infast, Stadco and Chiron, with buildings and plot development undertaken by Austin-Smith: Lord.
