Work Underway On Speculative Sheffield Business Park Unit

Construction of a 33,000 sqft speculative industrial unit is under way at Sheffield Business Park.

The project belonging to Gregory Properties is expected to complete next year when the two acre site off Europa Link – the main road within the park – will host a 30,000 sqft of industrial/warehouse space with a 3,000 sqft mechanical and engineering fitted office mezzanine.

Sheffield-based BDB Design Build is the principal contractor on the scheme, working alongside The Harris Partnership, Eastwood & Partners and RPP Group. Gregory Properties secured planning for the site in November and, once completed, the unit will neighbour current Sheffield Business Park businesses SIG, Gleeson and Hart Shaw.

The building is a steel portal frame unit that will offer 9m to eaves with three ground level access doors, rooftop solar PV and carparking for 34 vehicles, among other features.

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 has been appointed to market the property. Harry Orwin–Allen, senior surveyor at Knight Frank, said: “The industrial and distribution sector across Yorkshire continues to be buoyant, with demand from a range of sectors. The development of Unit T1 Sheffield Business Park offers opportunity for an occupier acquire a brand new, high specification detached unit with good yard provision and strong environmental credentials by way of sale or letting.

“Located at the established Sheffield Business Park, the property is in a highly desirable industrial, logistics and distribution location, a stone’s throw from the Sheffield Parkway and therefore having fantastic links to Junction 33 of the M1 motorway and Sheffield City Centre. We are excited to bring this opportunity forward and look forward to seeing construction progress.”
