Marks and Spencer distribution centre, Bradford

Client: Marks and Spencer, ProLogis
Roofing contractor: CA Roofing Services
Type of works: design, manufacture and supply of Hambleside Danelaw's barrel vault rooflights.

ProLogis and CA Roofing Services have chosen Hambleside Danelaw’s barrel vault rooflights for installation on the new Marks and Spencer’s distribution centre in Bradford. The massive building, which will be the largest in the M&S property portfolio and is currently being fitted out, occupies 1.1 million square feet and has a 95,000m2 roof.

As with all of the Group’s award-winning rooflight range, the assembly uses an insulating core to improve thermal efficiency. The rooflights will also offer the M&S staff very pleasant diffuse natural lighting in which to work and independent research from De Montfort University has shown that this has a positive impact on productivity as well as saving on energy costs.

This is not the first time that Hambleside Danelaw’s rooflights have been chosen as part of a prestigious ProLogis development. In 2008 they were installed as part of the ProLogis Pineham let to Sainsbury’s that won numerous national and international accolades for leading the way in green building technology. The market-leading heat-saving methods of construction, which included large GRP insulated rooflights, were estimated to reduce energy consumption by up to 40% compared to a standard warehouse.
