ST. MODWEN DELIVERS 45,000 SQ FT OF EMPLOYMENT SPACE AT GREAT WESTERN BUSINESS PARK

St. Modwen, the UK’s leading regeneration specialist, is delivering 45,000 sq ft of new employment units on the second phase of Great Western Business Park in Worcester.

More than half the space, 25,000 sq ft, will be split across six industrial units ranging from 3,500 to 5,500 sq ft, which will be available to lease or buy. Construction is underway on the units and is set complete by the end of the year.

The remaining 20,000 sq ft will be a bespoke fire station for Hereford & Worcester Fire Authority (HWFA), providing modern, low carbon accommodation utilising micro combined heat and power (CHP) and photovoltaic power generation. The station will boast high quality training facilities as well as space for The Young Firefighters, to encourage the next generation of firefighters. Construction is due to complete in January 2015, enabling the fire service to relocate from its existing base at Copenhagen Street in the city.

Jonathan Green, development surveyor at St. Modwen, said: “Confidence is returning to the Worcester market, with business owners looking to take on additional space.

“With the first phase of Great Western Business Park fully occupied, there is a shortage of good quality employment space in the area, so these units will respond to the upturn in our enquiries.

“Together with the new fire station, the new units are kick starting Phase 2 of Great Western Business Park, which promises to boost inward investment and generate many new jobs.”

Companies based at Phase 1 include Euro Car Parts, Materials Solutions, Nemesis GB, Andrew Page, Storage King and Altaras.

Located off Tolladine Road, Great Western Business Park is located half a mile from Worcester City Centre and within two miles of Junction 6 of the M5 motorway. It is a managed estate benefitting from 24 hour CCTV monitoring and designated parking.
