Construction of a 140,000 sq ft headquarters building at the new £120 million Worcester Six Business Park has been given the go-ahead by planners.
Shed developer Stoford won planning consent from Wychavon District Council to build the unit. The move comes after Kimal Plc signed up as the first company to commit to moving to the 1.5m sq ft Worcester Six, located off junction six of the M5 near Worcester.
Kimal, a market leader in developing and manufacturing a range of innovative products and procedural solutions for the healthcare sector, has agreed a 15-year lease for the £13 million unit.
Construction will commence in October for the estate road with the main building construction due to commence in early 2018. Practical completion is expected in mid 2018.
Gerard Ludlow said: “The agreement with Kimal marked a significant milestone as it was the first pre-let occupier to be secured at the site. Now that we have planning consent we can begin construction and look forward to the company moving to Worcester Six next year.”
