Contractor appointed for Huntingdon business park
GMI Construction Group has been appointed by Trebor Developments to deliver a state-of-the-art business park in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire worth £13M.
The company said the award, which represents a significant milestone as it expands its operations into new territories, will consist of two units with a combined area of more than 14,600m2 to be constructed at Lightning Park.
Expected to be completed in 41 weeks, GMI will collaborate with UMC Architects and Ridge and Nolan Associates, with construction work on the site getting underway this Spring.
Logistics giant DHL UK have signed a long-term lease for the larger unit, while the smaller warehouse is to be built speculatively.
Located in a prominent commercial area just off the A1M and close to the newly improved A14, the BREEAM ‘Very Good’ development is approximately a mile away from Huntingdon town centre.
Greg Dalton, Development Director for Trebor said: “We’re delighted to hit three major milestones for the delivery of this site in securing planning, appointing a contractor, and agreeing terms with a fantastic occupier.
“We’ve worked closely with the occupier and it’s a testament to our delivery team to get to this stage against the backdrop of uncertainty throughout the second half of 2022, and we look forward to delivering the units in 2023.”
