Work is due to begin on a new business park near Nottingham which will provide 1 million sq ft of commercial space once complete.
Derbyshire-based TanRo has been named as lead contractor at Fairham Business Park and will soon arrive on site to begin delivery of the development’s first phase.
The 50-acre scheme is being brought forward as part of a joint venture between Clowes Developments and Homes England, the government’s housing accelerator.
The business park forms part of the wider Fairham scheme, which is located alongside Remembrance Way by the NET tram terminus at Clifton.
The £800m scheme will provide up to 3,000 new homes, a new neighbourhood centre with shops, community buildings, a health centre and a new primary school.
£100m worth of infrastructure improvements will also be made, with the ambitious project expected to create over 2,000 new jobs.
TanRo’s Fintan Phelan said: “We are delighted to be awarded construction lead for the state-of-the-art commercial units at Fairham Business Park. We have recently completed the construction of two ‘built to suit’ facilities at Clowes own Etiquette Park in Ilkeston, on time and according to a very tight schedule. We are ready for this next challenge are delighted to be part of such an exciting project.”
James Richards, development director at Clowes Developments, said: “It will be great to have TanRo setting up their base at Fairham Business Park. Once works have begun, passers-by and locals will soon see significant progress and be able to watch the commercial development spring to life.
“Fairham will create a thriving new community and neighbourhood that is well-planned, safe, and friendly, a place that has a vibrant mix of residential and commercial amenities, all designed and built to the highest standards.”
Leicester-based IMA Architects led on the design of the industrial facilities at Fairham Business Park.
Ben Hall, associate director at IMA, said: “We have a long-standing proven track record of working with Clowes Developments to deliver top notch schemes like this across the UK. We are excited to finally see this business park take shape and complete another impressive employment opportunity within the East Midlands.”
FHP Property Consultants and Savills have been appointed to market the scheme.
