Britcon completes 13 unit industrial scheme at Markham Vale

Building and civil engineering company Britcon has completed the construction of 13 modern new SME units at Markham Vale in Derbyshire.

Britcon were appointed to build to scheme by development partnership Priority Space and Hunt Group which acquired the 1.6-acre site last year and subsequently secured planning consent to deliver 25,000 sq ft of accommodation from Derbyshire County Council.

The scheme sits within the Markham Vale flagship regeneration zone which is a 200-acre business and distribution park at Junction 29A of the M1 motorway.

The industrial units range in size from 1,200 to 3,050 sq ft and are designed to support small to medium sized businesses looking to expand or start up and are available to purchase.

Britcon delivered 13 units of steel frame structure with metal cladding and curtain walling. It also completed site infrastructure works and landscaping with sister company Specialist Surfacing.

Paul Clarkson at Britcon said, “We are pleased to complete our second project with Priority Space.  The first, Kiln Park in Yorkshire, was a great success offering a 21,000 sq ft of accommodation with units of unusual design for industrial space. It also incorporated complementary retail units.  We were able to apply a full design and build turnkey solution at Markham Vale that was fully managed and delivered by Britcon and its subsidiary team.”

Britcon’s sector experience includes the Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP) in Sheffield, Treleigh Industrial Estate in Cornwall, and Langage Science Park in Plymouth.

Established for more than 26 years, Britcon is £50 million turnover business headquartered in Scunthorpe and directly employs 90 people on its project sites across the UK.  Key contracts secured in the last 12 month includes a £13.5 million contract to deliver a new anaerobic digestion (AD) plant in Dagenham for food waste recycler ReFood (UK) Ltd, a series of new developments, extensions and refurbishment projects valued over £10 million for Lidl, and contracts worth over £4 million for global chemicals business Kemira.
