A £4.5m office and industrial park in Telford, which was completed during the challenges of Covid, has seen strong demand for its quality units.
Just five of the 26 light industrial units that we built at Access442 are now available for sale or to let at the site it owns and manages.
Our construction team continued working on site throughout the pandemic in line with Government safety guidance. It completes the development of Access442, which provides 26 units, some 59,500 ft², attracting investment and jobs from a range of businesses.
Chief Operating Officer James West said: “It was a challenge but we were able to deliver the scheme thanks to teamwork and planning and adhering to Covid restrictions. We managed the number of people on site and changed how we worked, from temperature checks and hand washing, to carrying out temporary works, so we could continue to work and keep everyone safe.”
Nine of the 14 newly built units are under offer, with five 2,510ft² units remaining with car parking and bespoke fit out available.
Liz Lowe, our Head of Estates, said: “We are not surprised by the interest as these are quality units in a great location. We are looking forward to welcoming more businesses to relocate here and grow.”
The diverse mix of occupiers at Access442 includes Baker & Son Schoolwear, which bought its 2,546 ft² unit after originally moving in as tenants, print company Telford Reprographics and global organisation EWAB Engineering.
Andrew Dixon & Company and Lambert Smith Hampton are joint agents. Alex Smith of Andrew Dixon said: “The units are built to a high standard and the site has excellent communication links. Access442 has proved popular with a range of businesses that have recognised its appeal and we see that continuing.”
The five-acre site at Hadley Park in Telford was acquired from the Home and Communities Agency and Telford & Wrekin Council. It has prominent frontage onto the A442 and easy access to the A5 Shrewsbury bypass, A49 and M54 motorway.
