Construction begins on new units at Barnsley business park

Construction work on five new industrial units has begun at the Network Space’s Ashroyd Business Park in Barnsley.

Contractors GF Tomlinson are now on site and making progress on the units, which will range from 10,900 sq ft to 52,500 sq ft, developed for companies within the industrial and distribution sector and to address the need for more space in the region.

The scheme, slated for completion by Spring 2020, is being marketed by Commercial Property Partners (CPP), advising on the leasing and sales of the units.

The project is being delivered Network Space, in partnership with Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council as well as Sheffield City Region and their Jessica Fund, which has provided a loan of £6.13 million.

The site, located off the Dearne Valley Parkway, provides excellent transport links, and has Universal, Components, Euromax and Storefirst currently occupying the existing units.

“Speculative development at Ashroyd is just what the occupier market needs,” said Ed Norris from CPP.

“Quality units in a quality location which will appeal to both South and West Yorkshire occupiers looking for space along the M1 corridor.

“Network Space has a proven track record to deliver the right product and we anticipate strong demand for the whole development.”
