Completion of £16m Birchwood Park industrial development
A £16m industrial scheme at out-of-town business destination, Birchwood Park, has completed, bringing flexible warehouse space to the region.
Construction work on the third phase of the park’s Cavendish Warehouse scheme, which features four units totalling 153,500 sq ft in total warehouse space, was completed by Caddick Construction in under 12 months.
Although work on the park’s latest development has only just concluded, it has already proven to be highly sought after amongst both existing and potential new occupiers and is almost fully let.
Created with flexible workspace in mind, each of the four new, high quality warehouses offer above industry average office content and have been designed to support companies requiring large industrial units to accommodate a range of uses.
The development will provide its occupiers with versatile units to accommodate businesses looking for high quality, secure warehouse space, located in a community centred environment, but with the flexibility to increase office space as required.
The latest wave of warehouse construction is part of Birchwood Park’s ambition to meet the increasing demand for top grade warehouse space of this size in the surrounding North West area.
Martin O’Rourke, commercial director at Birchwood Park, said: “Not only has Caddick Construction completed the latest phase of our Cavendish Warehouse, but it is even more pleasing to confirm that the new site has let half of the new buildings prior to completion which is testament to the quality of the product, location and the benefits of Birchwood Park.”
Paul Dodsworth, Caddick Construction group managing director, said: “This has been a significant project for the Caddick team, drawing on the raft of experience we have in the industrial sector. The resulting build is flexible, top grade warehouse facilities that will prove hugely valuable for businesses, both locally and beyond.”
Among the deals recently completed at Cavendish Warehouse are the expansion of global medical diagnostics company, Werfen, in addition to welcoming window and door replacement provider, Safestyle UK, which agreed a pre-let deal for new warehouse space earlier this year.
Each warehouse unit features a secure yard, on-site parking, and is superbly located, within easy access of junction 11 of the M62. This has been created to support occupiers with both recruiting and retaining staff, accessing important talent pools and recent graduates across the North West
Martin added: “The new warehouse space is allowing Birchwood Park to provide something that the North West has been in need of for some time – hybrid warehouse space with office space than can be expanded if necessary.”
Designed by architects AEW, Caddick Construction has been the main contractor for the project. B8 Real Estate and JLL have remained agents acting on behalf of Birchwood Park.
