Earthworks underway at industrial development

Earthworks have begun at a new industrial scheme, which is being masterminded by Clowes Developments.

The firm instructed groundwork contractor J.C Balls & Sons to commence the earthworks and the first phase infrastructure, ahead of the construction of the scheme at Stud Brook Business Park, Castle Donington.

The new business park connects Clowes’ developed and managed East Midlands Distribution Centre, near to East Midlands Airport.

A reserved matters planning application for the infrastructure works was granted consent in May.

J.C Balls & Sons has started work on levelling the ground, creating plateaus and delivering essential infrastructure, such as roads and services, which will facilitate the construction of the commercial units over the next two years.

Once works are completed, contractors will be on site to start the construction of the buildings.

According to Clowes, the mixed-use scheme will house bespoke build to suit employment, amenity, office, and industrial facilities, ranging in size from 1,500 sq ft to 45,000 sq ft.

The site will offer a mixture of detached and semi-detached commercial units, with onsite car parking and adequate yard provisions.

Clowes has instructed a landscape architect to devise a comprehensive plan, which will gently blend the commercial units at Stud Brook with a neighbouring residential development.

Dane Potts, operations manager at J.C Balls & Sons, said: “Over the last couple of years, we have been working closely with Clowes and their planning team to give the most efficient engineering solution for the earthworks and infrastructure, providing them with a solution that gives them the development areas they need.

“It has been a pleasure working with team at the planning stage. Being given the opportunity to self-deliver the enabling works in advance of the building contractors is a privilege.”

The Stud Brook development is being marketed by FHP Property Consultants and NG Chartered Surveyors.
