Speculative build starts on site for 33,000 sq ft unit

Gregory Properties has started speculative construction to deliver a 33,000 sq ft industrial unit at Sheffield Business Park.

The unit will comprise 30,000 sq ft of industrial/warehouse space with a 3,000 sq ft M&E fitted office mezzanine.

Sheffield-based BDB Design Build is the principal contractor appointed to work alongside The Harris Partnership, Eastwood & Partners and RPP Group, to deliver the scheme.

Gregory Properties acquired the two-acre vacant site on Europa Link, the main road running through the popular estate, from Sheffield Business Park Ltd in May 2022 and secured planning consent to deliver the unit in November.

It anticipates completion for occupation by January 2024.

Nick Gillott, development director at Gregory Properties, said: “We are delighted to be able to start construction on site to deliver a state-of-the-art building that responds to critical demand for market ready premises in South Yorkshire.  Sheffield Business Park is a prime strategic site that is already recognised as a hotbed of cutting-edge industry and is well placed for last mile logistics operators serving the Sheffield City Region.”

The Sheffield office of Knight Frank is appointed to market the property.
