Business park work progressing well

Work on the construction of four new buildings at a Cheshire business park is progressing well, with prospective tenants now being sought .

Steel beams are in place for the units at Duttons Business Centre in Northwich, and contractor Wynne Construction says it is on track to complete the project in December.

The expansion will take the business park to 10 premises. The premises are being built through the council’s property reinvestment programme which seeks to provide new business space in the area.

Graham Dickson, contracts manager at Wynne Construction, said: “Everything has been going smoothly so far and we are pleased with the progress made.

“One of the reasons things are coming along well is our solution for installing the foundations. Due to ground conditions we have been able to bypass the traditional method of digging trenches to complete foundations, and then constructing the floor, by using a concrete raft construction.”

Each unit, which will be 258 sq metres, with eaves height to allow a first floor mezzanine floor deck if necessary, comes with on-site car parking and solar panels on the roof to re-generate electricity.

Throughout the £1.2 million project, Wynne Construction will employ approximately 50 people, ranging from direct employees to subcontractors. The construction of the Northwich units forms part of a wider project for Cheshire West and Chester, which is providing business support and workspace. The project is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
