Construction teams have broken ground on the 7 month building project for developer and regeneration expert, St Modwen. The development off the A46 in Swinderby will create more than 95,000sqft of warehouse and manufacturing accommodation.
St.Modwen owns more than 30 acres of industrial land in Lincoln, including Firth Road and Ruston Works; and were the developer behind the state-of-the-art facility for Siemens at Teal Park.
Rob Richardson, senior development manager at St Modwen said ““Our decision to commence construction was driven by our strategy of increasing our industrial development programme across our portfolio, but reinforced by the very encouraging levels of interest we have had in Network 46 since we acquired the land in late 2016.
“Today marks a major step forward in our development of the site and the delivery of much needed employment space in the region.”
Planning consent had originally been granted for more than 960,000 sq ft of commercial space on the 70-acre Business Park, part of which has been developed with occupiers including Apogee, Turbine Efficiency UK Mail and DPDUK.
Simon Gregory, MD of Lindum Construction, said: “We are very pleased to be embarking on this scheme for St. Modwen, a company with which we have established a strong working relationship.
These units follow on from similar developments at Parkside in Doncaster, where we have delivered high quality, industrial premises which have supported employment growth and stimulated economic investment.”
Building work is scheduled for completion in February 2019.
