Loughborough-based developer and contractor, William Davis Ltd, has sold the final unit at the award-winning Chetwynd Business Park in Chilwell to the Institute of Quarrying (IQ), bringing an end to the highly successful development.
IQ is relocating, together with the Mineral Products Qualification Council from its existing Nottingham city centre offices into the 3,000 sq ft unit at the prestigious business park, which is already home to First Response Finance and ITV Central, among others.
Paul Watkins, project co-ordinator with William Davis said: “The Chetwynd development has been a milestone project for William Davis. It has been eight years in the making, winning the prestigious Nottingham Evening Post Environmental Sustainability Award when the ‘eco offices’ achieved one of the first BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and EPC A ratings in the UK and we are delighted that the final unit will now become home to an organisation we know and have been involved with professionally.”
Jack Berridge, executive director, Institute of Quarrying added: “We are pleased to take ownership of the new premises at Chilwell, it will serve as a centre of excellence for education and training for the extractive sector. Its central location will provide a meeting hub for the various organisations across the country, which operates within the industry.”
Savills acted on behalf William Davis, with Chesterton Humberts on behalf IQ.
William Davis commenced work on the £20m speculative development in 2004, developing some 110,000 sq ft of new commercial buildings on the former brownfield site.
