A commercial development comprising seven hybrid ‘nano units’ and two 2,000 sq ft high-end industrial units, creating 50 new and sustainable jobs. The Nano Park concept, features warehousing space on the ground floor, with offices above, providing an ideal base for small and fledgling companies and satellite operations for larger firms. The development regenerates a brownfield, severely sloping plot, occupied by a former mill building. This required a foundation solution which included a combination of piled and pad foundations on to underlying rock.
Edward Marshall, of the Bradford-based Nano Park Company, said: “We are focused on sustainability in our Nano Parks and have eliminated gas from the schemes. We now fit air source heat pumps as standard keeping us at the forefront of environmental performance in our sector. The success of our Nano Parks across Yorkshire means this model is working. And how.”
Business parks of two storey units, typically ranging from 2,500 to 7,500 sq ft are built to a “standard” pattern. This minimises construction programme, achieves a quick return on investment for the developer and simplifies the Engineering aspects for the Contractor.
