Tees AMP Wins Commercial Development of the Year at Insider Property Awards North East
Tees Advanced Manufacturing Park (TeesAMP) won commercial development of the year last night (22nd September) at the Insider Property Awards North East.
The 11-hectare development site consisting of 22 buildings ranging from 3,000 to 45,000sqft built on the former 'Ironmasters' blast furnace site on the banks of the River Tees is now 90% occupied (or under offer) and has been let with record levels of rent for Tees Valley.
Under a design and build contract, Robertson Construction North East diverted 99.99% of waste from landfill. The site, on the former Newport Iron Works, had ground that included iron ore slag which ran up to 10m in depth in some areas. Over 40,000m³ was excavated and reused to form foundations, capping for roads and to build up slab levels; 25,000m³ of the iron ore slag was crushed and reused throughout different parts of the site.
During the 65-week programme the team also delivered employment and training opportunities within the local community, including work experience for 33 students from Middlesbrough College and the creation of 12 jobs through the supply chain.
Using BRE's SmartWaste environmental site monitoring and reporting software, the team was able to account for every material touched on site.
