Nano Park model set for Kirklees

Frank Marshall Estates, the West Yorkshire property development company, is looking to roll out its Nano Park concept into Kirklees.

The Nano Park model creates small employment space, providing an ideal base for small and fledgling companies as well as satellite operations for larger firms.

Each Nano Park creates at least 70 jobs, providing a boost to the local economy.

A 12,000 sq ft Nano Park has already been developed by Frank Marshall Estates in Bradford, with other similar parks in the pipeline in Armley, Skipton and Wakefield.

Jimmy Marshall, director of Frank Marshall Estates, explained: “The astounding success of our ground-breaking Nano Park in Bradford, which is completely full, has encouraged us to repeat the model elsewhere in Yorkshire.

“We are now looking specifically at Kirklees, which is an excellent Yorkshire location, given its skilled labour force and its outstanding transport links, notably the proximity of the M62.”

Mr Marshall, who lives in Huddersfield, said: “We provide small units, normally about 860 sq ft, per floor over two floors. The ground floor is classic industrial space so can be used for storage, garaging, workshop, laboratory, and manufacturing, basically whatever a customer needs.

“The first floor is a fully-fitted out office, designed to a very high modern standard and with a contemporary feel. We can see a gap in the business space market where not all occupiers want just five or 10 per cent of office space in their unit. We believe we are offering the new option for a more internet-based world, where a quality office is part of the space needed.

“We target start-up, SME and satellite operations for larger companies. There is a very limited supply of modern space for this sector of the economy in Kirklees right now and the need for this type of space is increasingly important in the current economic climate.”
