Victorian Plumbing is set to be handed the keys to its new 544,000 sq ft home after developer Caddick Group reached practical completion on the site.

The new home for the bathroom retailer is a logistics hub serving as the anchor building for Farington Park in Leyland.

The facility, strategically positioned between J28 and J29 of the M6, was the result of a funding deal between Caddick Developments, Goldman Sachs Asset Management and Canmoor.

Planning permission for the first phase of Farington Park was granted to Caddick by South Ribble Borough Council in April 2022, following extensive consultation with local residents, businesses and stakeholders.

Once both phases are fully operational, Farington Park will support up to 1,100 jobs.

Tom Park, development manager at Caddick Developments, said: "This project is the culmination of many years of work from our teams and we’re particularly pleased to have been able to work alongside an excellent investor partner, Goldman Sachs, to deliver this much needed landmark scheme.

"The development will address a huge need for high-quality industrial and logistics space within the North West, as well as echoing our commitment for creating spaces which benefit both people and planet." 

Throughout construction, the team has also delivered a comprehensive social value strategy, including a host of local opportunities for training and employment. This has included Lancashire student, Isabelle Roberts, who undertook a programme of work experience alongside her A-Levels and has since started a Quantity Surveying apprenticeship with Caddick Construction.

Efforts to positively impact the local community also saw the project support four apprentices, two work experience placements and a 77 per cent local workforce, as well as undertaking mentoring and interactive career sessions with Bridgeway School.
