The company has agreed a new 15-year lease with B&Q at Symmetry Park, a major industrial and distribution scheme, located at the North Nottinghamshire/South Yorkshire border.

The bespoke building is to become a seasonal warehouse and distribution centre for B&Q, and will be built to net zero carbon in construction, in line with Tritax Symmetry’s commitment carbon neutrality across its new buildings.

B&Q joins other companies including luxury dog food supplier, Butternut Box, who have made part of Symmetry Park’s 721,000 sq ft of logistics space their new home.

Freddie Oakey, associate development director at Tritax Symmetry said: “As an existing customer within the wider Tritax Big Box portfolio, we are pleased to have brought B&Q to this Tritax Symmetry development.

Tritax Big Box has a long-standing relationship with B&Q and has been the landlord at B&Q’s national core products distribution centre in Worksop since 2005.

"It will allow us to get more of the most popular products to B&Q stores, and quicker.”
