A significant milestone has been reached in the development of a new, purpose-built headquarters building in Warwickshire, on behalf of British chemical engineering firm, CALGAVIN.
Leading property developer, Graftongate has confirmed that the building’s steel frame is now in place and cladding installation is set to start shortly.
The 36,381 sq ft development is being constructed on a 2.3-acre site at Alcester Employment Park, Arden Road.
It will be known as the Centre for Flow Processing and will become a focal point for the integration of commercial and university-led research. The building will deliver Grade A office facilities and laboratory and product development space, as well as production and testing capabilities.
Graftongate is targeting an EPC A rating for the new development which is expected to be completed in Q1 2024. Benniman is the appointed contractor.
Jamie Hockaday, director at Graftongate, said: “We’re very pleased to be making excellent progress in the delivery of CALGAVIN’s new purpose-built headquarters. This best-in-class facility will provide the necessary space to enable the firm to develop and test new high value products and expand its global business opportunities. We are looking forward to moving on to the next phase of the development.”
Martin Gough, founder and managing director of CALGAVIN, said: “It’s truly exciting to witness the construction project taking form, and we couldn’t be happier with the remarkable progress achieved thus far.
“This new facility is crucial for propelling our business forward, as its completion will provide us with much-needed, specially designed space to support the development and testing of our cutting-edge, high-value products, while also bolstering our production capacity. It will serve as a dedicated hub for CALGAVIN’s promising and innovative future.”

The site is capable of delivering c.450,000 sq ft of industrial/warehouse accommodation, including individual units of up to 150,000 sq ft on a design and build basis.
