Lindum York breaks ground on business park expansion

Lindum has been appointed to build a new 12,500 square foot industrial unit on a growing business park in Yorkshire.

The project is part of a £25m investment programme by Potter Space, which owns, develops and operates five parks in the UK.

Lindum York, based in Elvington, is to build Unit 52 on the company’s Ripon site.

Project Manager Brenden Bates said work was scheduled to finish in spring 2020.

“Initial works started this month and around 10 employees from Lindum’s York office will be engaged on this project. In addition we will be working with local sub-contractors and suppliers.

“We are really pleased to be working with Potter Group. It is a well-established, family-run, local business and its values and principles align well with those of Lindum Group

“We hope this project will lead to an ongoing relationship as Potter Group continues with its dynamic plans for the industrial park here at Ripon.”

Once complete it will have an eaves height of eight metres and include eco-friendly features such as solar panels, electric vehicle charging points and cycle parking.

Commenting on the build, Jenna Strover, head of commercial delivery at Potter Space, said: “We are getting an increasing number of enquiries for new units of this size, with good transport links, as they are under-represented in the local market. We have therefore decided to build it speculatively, with the potential for a customer to come on board during construction and provide input into the final design, thereby providing them with a bespoke industrial unit to meet their needs.

“We are pleased to have commissioned the Lindum Group for the project. Not only will it boost the local economy, as they are based in Elvington, but like Potter Space it is a family business with an excellent reputation.”

Lindum MD Jonathan Sizer added: “We are delighted to be working on this, our first project for Potter Space at such an exciting time for the group, with the change in its primary focus from haulage to now providing first class logistics and industrial space for local business.”

Joint letting agents for the unit 52 are Fox Lloyd Jones and Gent Visick.
