Winvic celebrated ground breaking for net-zero Greenbox project (GB)

Winvic will be delivering the Greenbox's - 36-week project as Net Zero Carbon in Construction and the companies have celebrated with a groundbreaking ceremony. Greenbox is a joint venture between Partners Group and Citivale.



The Greenbox Darlington site covers an area of approximately 9.7ha and consists of three speculative industrial facilities with a total area of 37,450m2. This includes all associated earthworks, drainage and service installations, as well as hard and soft landscaping. The construction work is expected to be completed by the end of the year.


Here are the details of each unit:

- Unit 1: 18,858m2 warehouse with 929m2 office space

- Unit 2: 9,290m2 warehouse with 464m2 office space

- Unit 3: 7,432m2 warehouse with 372m2 office space


All three units will use air-source heat pumps and will be rooftop PV-ready. They will also achieve leading sustainability credentials, including BREEAM Excellent and EPC A. Additionally, 10% of the car parking spaces will be dedicated to electric vehicles (EV).


The site is located on the A66 and is close to three junctions on the A1(M). It is a proven manufacturing hub and a "last mile" location for major urban areas in the North East.


Danny Nelson, Winvic’s Head of Industrial, Distribution and Logistics, commented: “It seems that as we hand over one project with sustainability at its heart, we’re contracted for the next and we’re delighted to be working in partnership with Greenbox for the first time. Thank you to Partners Group and Citivale for putting their trust in our forward-thinking ESG expertise, making Greenbox Darlington Winvic’s twenty-seventh Net Zero Carbon project. Our team is looking forward to a fast start and will deliver the three industrial units before the end of 2024.”



Alex Reynolds, Development Director at Citivale, said: “We are delighted to be working with Winvic on our Greenbox Darlington development. Their ESG commitments and expertise are perfectly aligned with our goal for the Greenbox platform, to create a lasting, positive impact on a local, national and global level and to lead wherever possible in this regard. Having acquired this planning-ready site at the end of 2023, in a thriving industrial and manufacturing area of the North East, it’s great to have been able to move so quickly to this first milestone in the development and we look forward to working closely with the team to make Greenbox Darlington available for occupation at the very start of next year.
