Priority Space to bring 70 jobs to Markham Vale

Priority Space is set to build 15 industrial units at Henry Boot Development’s Markham Vale regeneration site which could create up to 70 new jobs.

The company has appointed Scunthorpe-based construction firm Britcon (UK) to build the units that will range from 1,244 to 3,050 sq ft.

Lee Buchanan, director at Priority Space, said: “The start of construction is a great milestone for the scheme − especially so soon after planning was granted.

“It is a significant speculative development in response to strong levels of demand in the area which reinforces our confidence in the potential of the Markham Vale site and the strength of the local economy.”

Vivienne Clements from Henry Boot Developments said: “We are pleased to welcome this type of investment to Markham Vale, demonstrating the robust demand in the area and the benefits of our established location.

“Priority Space’s speculative development will meet the demand of smaller occupiers allowing us to continue our focus on bespoke buildings of 10,000 square feet plus.”
