The project – a 34-acre site with associated infrastructure and services, and units ranging from 3,000 sq ft to 30,000 sq ft – addresses a national shortage of high-specification buildings for advanced manufacturing and is expected to create around 1,000 new jobs.

By addressing these challenges before onsite works, the benefits for our customer included:

Key facts

– Geoff Hogg, Cleveland Property Investments
