Joint Agents Reach out to Growing SMEs for Nottingham Grade A Office Scheme
4th April 2018
Work has started at Edwalton Business Park – the first new Grade A office scheme in Nottingham since the end of the recession.
Demolition contractors are on site clearing the existing housing in order to facilitate the development of four standalone Grade A offices, totalling 23,500 sq ft.
With one of the units already sold, contractors will roll into a programme of building, with practical completion scheduled for Q2 2019 of the 6,400 sq ft unit that will, like all the units on the scheme, incorporate a substantial 11.3 KWp solar PV installation on the roof.
Jonathon Seddon, director at NG Chartered Surveyors, the joint agent on the scheme, said:
“These offices are being specifically targeted at SME business owners looking for a working environment that’s substantially better than the existing – and dwindling – office stock in the city, surrounded by other like-minded businesses. The solar arrays will not only save an occupier money, but they’ll save 20 tonnes of carbon dioxide from being released annually into the atmosphere.”
Offices at Edwalton Business Park will benefit from vaulted ceilings, giving a far greater impression of space. They will also incorporate mezzanine level meeting rooms allowing a far more efficient use of the space. The attention to detail is a cut above, says Jonathan, and includes extras such as electric car charging points.
“They won’t be cheap to buy and we’re being upfront about that, but a high-quality product designed to a high specification and an exacting level of attention to detail never will be.
“Edwalton Business Park is a superb location, affording easy access to those coming from Edwalton, West Bridgford and the Vale of Belvoir. A business owner’s drive into the office will be a breeze and when he or she’s arrived they’ll have somewhere to park before spending the day in a fantastic working environment.”
James Measures, at joint agent Measures and Co, said:
“We’ve identified a clear gap in the market that we believe Edwalton Business Park will fill. Since the recession, there have been no new offices built in the city and, with stock levels falling, occupiers are left with very few options. Edwalton Business Park has been designed to appeal to SME business owners that want a high-quality working environment in a location unaffected by traffic congestion, or the unpopular Workplace Parking Levy.
“Measures and Co and NG are bringing our own particular skills to the table. Given that we’re able to tailor units to suit the needs of a particular occupier, James’s technical and project management skills are such that we are able to ensure that we’re giving prospective purchasers and tenants a truly bespoke service.”
