Work has started on Trebor Developments' 78,458 sq ft speculative development at Rotherham.
Trebor/Hillwood and selected contractor, MCS Group Limited, is building the quality industrial unit on the prominent site located less than 2.5 miles from Junction 31 of the M1, near Rotherham, following the site purchase completion.
Work on site commenced this month for completion in December 2019. The building will be suitable for logistics/distribution or manufacturing uses and built to high quality, sustainable standards and is part of Trebor/Hillwood's national development pipeline of similar speculative, industrial developments totalling 3,000,000 sq ft over the next 18 months.
Bob Tattrie, Managing Partner of Trebor Developments commented: “We are delighted to have selected MCS Group Limited as our main contractor and see work proceeding on site. This is the second major construction project we have awarded MCS. The development provides quality industrial accommodation to meet local and regional occupier needs and represents part of our national development pipeline of similar speculative, industrial developments, delivering in the order of three million square feet over the next 18 months.”
Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council’s Cabinet Member of Jobs and the Local Economy Cllr Denise Lelliott said: “We know there is a market out there for high-quality commercial property, so this is a very welcome investment. The completed units will be let to inward investors or expanding local companies, which will support business growth in the borough and provide high-value lasting employment for residents.”
Tim Perkins, Group Development Director at MCS Group, said: “We very pleased to be working alongside Trebor Developments on its latest warehouse development. Together, we will be delivering a high quality industrial/logistics unit in a first-class location, which will help to address the needs of the regional market.
“With work on site now underway, we are expecting to make good progress through the summer and reach practical completion before the end of the year”.
