Work to begin on 80,500 sq ft company HQ

A contractor will start work this month on an 80,500 sq ft HQ building for an undisclosed occupier in Tankersley, South Yorkshire.

Stainforth Construction Ltd has been appointed by Barmston Developments a subsidiary of Leeds based Wilton Developments to deliver the final plot on the Enterprise 36 industrial park.

Enterprise 36 is a four-unit development, a mile from J36 of the M1.

Last year Barmston Developments, advised by CBRE & CPP, completed deals on Unit 4 to William Rowland and Unit 3 to label printing specialists Dura ID Solutions Ltd.

Following the letting of Unit 1, just one unit remains available. The available 77,804 sq ft Unit 2 has been speculatively developed and is ready for immediate occupation having recently achieved practical completion.

The development of Enterprise 36 is being supported by Barnsley Council’s Enterprising Barnsley investment team and their BMBC Property Investment Fund.

Jason Stowe, managing director of Wilton Developments, said: “Enterprise 36 has proven to be an attractive proposition for occupiers seeking high quality, well-connected accommodation with a range of design and build options.

“We are delighted to have now secured occupiers for three out of the four units and our agents are handling interest in the remaining unit which is ready for immediate occupation.

“The creation of new jobs is important more now than ever and we are pleased to be adding more roles to the regional offering.”

Mike Baugh, senior director at CBRE Leeds, said: “Occupiers have been quick to secure deals at Enterprise 36, recognising the benefits of the scheme’s strategic M1 positioning and attracted by the delivery solutions provided by the developer.

“The regional logistics sector continues to flourish and we are pleased to have Unit 2 available in an increasingly diminishing supply of high quality well located units in Motorway locations.”

Councillor Tim Cheetham, cabinet spokesman for regeneration and culture, said: “We are delighted that yet another business will be moving to Enterprise 36, assisted by our Enterprising Barnsley investment team.

“Enterprise 36 has been a real success story and demonstrates that by working with Barmston Developments, with the support of our Property Investment Fund, they have been able to deliver first class industrial premises in an excellent location.”

CBRE are acting as joint agents on the scheme with CPP.
