Buckingham Group Contracting
Managed by Verdion – a leading development company – iPort Doncaster is a major construction project that will create an important new logistics hub in the heart of South Yorkshire. It is situated on a 136 hectare (337 acre) site and, when complete, will boast up to 55 hectares (6 million sq ft) of warehouse space. It will also incorporate a 14 hectare (35 acre) strategic rail freight terminal and could create as many as 5,000 new jobs within the region.
Work began in the summer of 2015 and Buckingham Group was commissioned to manage much of the associated land remediation and groundwork. The company has worked with SUAVE on a number of previous occasions and so it asked it to conduct regular aerial surveys in order to record progress on site. Accordingly, SUAVE has since visited the site every month to take high resolution images and to record broadcast quality video sequences, some of which now feature in the ‘gallery’ section of the iPort website.
In addition to showing how work is progressing, the aerial video also shows very clearly how close the new development is to the M18 and A1M motorways. The development’s proximity to road, rail, air and coastal connections is a key part of its appeal, so such video footage could play an important part in promoting the iPort to potential clients and securing important pre-letting agreements.
