An empty patch of land looks set to become a hotbed of industry and enterprise with the creation of commercial units at one of Plymouth’s most successful business parks as part of a £2m scheme.
Brady Construction Services has been awarded the contract by Plymouth City Council to design and build up to 10 new high-quality and sustainable units at the Plymouth International Medical and Technology Park, in Derriford, in the north of the city.
Work is forecast to start on site in the summer to create about 1,745sq m of flexible office accommodation and light industrial space.
It will incorporate sustainable features to help minimise carbon emissions and running costs, including solar photovoltaic panels, increased levels of insulation, LED lighting, natural ventilation, electric vehicle charging pods and highly efficient heating systems.
The offices and industrial work spaces are expected to support between 70 and 90 full-time jobs and be attractive to a range of businesses.
