Ocado Retail to build new warehouse in Purfleet.

The joint venture between Ocado Group and M&S will see a new 305,000 sq.ft facility built at SEGRO Business Park in Purfleet in a bid to meet demand from its customer base in East London. 

The unit, which will sit on a 19-acre site will house Ocado’s robotic packing operation. There is already an Ocado facility at Park Royal, which covers the West of London.

J&D Pierce (Contracts) will design, fabricate and erect the structural steel required for this project.
