The directors of a construction materials and demolition firm are planning a new industrial development.
The directors at Total Aggregates and Total Reclaims Demolition are developing a piece of land near their Hucknall headquarters – which they say is being snapped up by potential tenants just a week after its official launch.
Melvyn Cross, Mark Cross, Gary Cross and Richard Noon, said they want to create a selection of high-calibre industrial units, which will be known as Whyburn Business Park.
Sunny Landa, director at commercial property specialists NG Chartered Surveyors, who is marketing the new scheme, said there had been a good response from prospective tenants.
He said: “Melvyn, Mark, Gary and Richard should be congratulated for creating such versatile high-spec industrial units in this area.
“The fact that they are being let shows that business confidence is still high, despite the challenges of the last 12 months.
“My colleague Ellis Cullen has already secured tenants for three of the nine units in phase one and has firm interest in a fourth, despite only bringing them to market a week ago.”
The first phase of the new Whyburn Business Park project will include nine units, each with a footprint of around 2,000 sq ft.
Phase two will see another nine similarly-sized units.
All 18 units will then be aimed at SMEs and with heights of 23 ft at the eaves, to give versatility in terms of machinery and storage, as well as the opportunity for mezzanine floor space.
With five proposed layouts, the new units can also be tailored specifically to the needs of the individual tenants.
Richard Noon said: “Our new units are set in an established location for industrial occupiers, with a large local labour pool and excellent transport links, including easy access to junctions 26 and 27 of the M1.
“The units include office spaces and toilet facilities, as well as electrical loading doors, private gated yards, landscaped grounds, electrical car charging points and excellent security.
“They also use high-performance insulating materials, which means our tenants will be able to enjoy outstanding efficiency, courtesy of an industry-leading Band B EPC rating.”
Sunny Landa said: “We are proud to be affiliated with this and delighted that they have had the confidence to put spade to ground.”
