J Tomlinson builds nine commercial units on regeneration site
November 13, 2017
Steel frames have gone up on a £1.6m commercial development project being built by J Tomlinson.
The Nottingham-based company has been appointed by St. Modwen to build the nine commercial units as part of St. Modwen’s £150m Littlecombe Business Park in Dursley, Gloucestershire.
The new units, developed speculatively in partnership with St. Modwen and Stroud District Council, will offer occupiers 18,350 sq ft of additional business space in accommodation sizes ranging from 1,300 sq ft to 8,600 sq ft and will sit alongside the eight businesses already established at the Business Park.
When completed, the entire Littlecombe development will provide 92 acres of mixed-use facilities featuring 450 new homes and apartments; employment space and local job opportunities within easy reach of the M5; a community hospital and around 40 acres of green open space where people can live, work and relax for generations to come.
Managing director (construction) at J Tomlinson, Martin Gallagher, said: “We are very pleased to be continuing our on-going relationship with St. Modwen, helping to develop key regeneration sites across the Midlands and further afield to create employment facilities and opportunities. As a company, J Tomlinson has wide experience of constructing industrial and commercial units, and these units in Gloucestershire are perfect examples of the first-class facilities that we develop for our clients.”
Pete Davies, Senior Development Manager for St. Modwen in the South West and Stroud District Council’s development partner at Littlecombe, said: “Demand for good quality commercial space in Gloucestershire remains buoyant. This next phase of smaller commercial buildings will further strengthen the site’s appeal for growing businesses looking to establish a presence in the Gloucestershire area whilst providing the potential for attracting up to 70 more jobs for the local area.”
Cllr Steve Lydon, leader of Stroud District Council said: “This is one of the largest brownfield regeneration projects in the county and is a great example of creating an attractive environment to live and work in. I’m looking forward to seeing the new units finished and bringing more jobs and investment to the district.”
The units will complete in spring 2018 and interested parties should contact agents, Ash & Co, regarding availability.
