New £16million space at Birchwood Park already fully let

Birchwood Park, the North West’s leading out-of-town business destination, has announced that the latest speculative warehouse development is now fully let.

Construction work on the £16 million Cavendish warehouse scheme, boasting 153,500 sq. ft in total warehouse space, was completed in May 2023.

Designed with a focus on adaptable workspaces, the new Cavendish Warehouse units caters to businesses seeking spacious and flexible industrial workspace capable of accommodating multiple functions, as well as an expansion if necessary.

The latest phase of the Cavendish Warehouse development was designed to meet the increasing demand for top-grade warehouse space right in the heart of the North West, signifying tangible growth for the region’s business space despite the challenges of COVID-19 in recent years.

Martin O’Rourke, Commercial Director at Birchwood Park, comments: “We’re delighted to announce that our latest Cavendish Warehouse space is now fully let.

“Even before completion, there was strong interest from several world-class businesses both regional to Birchwood but also across the country. The final occupier for the scheme is Warringtonfire. The company’s new facility represents an increase in size of almost 80% when compared to its existing facility in the region and is expected to triple the team’s testing capacity in the medium term”.

Aside from Warringtonfire, other occupiers who have moved into the new development include global medical diagnostics company, Werfen, and the UK’s leading window and door replacement provider, Safestyle UK, who agreed a pre-let deal for new warehouse space earlier this year.

This latest wave of construction follows a highly successful second phase of the Cavendish Warehouse development, which was completed in 2020 and which saw all units let within nine months to occupiers, including BES Group, ARNE, Maniere de Voir and Kleentex.

Martin continues: “Each warehouse unit features a secure yard, on-site parking, and is superbly located, within easy access of Junction 11 of the M62. Both new and existing occupiers will be able benefit from all the added amenities that come with being located on Birchwood Park, such as a free shuttle bus service to Birchwood station, a discounted membership to the ‘Alive and Well’ gym, as well as multiple food and drink services located across the Park”.

Designed by architects AEW, Caddick Construction has been the main contractors for the project. B8 Real Estate and JLL are letting agents acting on behalf of Birchwood Park.
