Hellifield based construction company Sutcliffe Construction has been awarded the contract for a 65,000 sq. ft. new premises for ventilation systems manufacturer EnviroVent from developer Teakwood Developments.
This is the latest in a succession of major contract wins for Sutcliffe, as they continue to tender for, and secure, larger commercial, industrial and mixed-use contracts.
“We’re delighted to have been awarded this project and to be working with Teakwood and EnviroVent” says James Sutcliffe, Sutcliffe Construction’s Managing Director, “it’s an exciting project that fits perfectly with our skills and experience.”
EnviroVent currently operates across two sites, and the new building on Burley Bank Road in Harrogate will bring together its manufacturing facility, warehousing, head office and training suite into one purpose built Headquarters.
Andy Makin, Managing Director EnviroVent says “Being based on one site with much larger facilities will bring many efficiency benefits for our staff and customers. We are really excited about what the new premises will mean for us in terms of our expansion plans in the future.”
Construction is due to start mid-May. The building will be the first phase of the new Harrogate West Business Park and a planning application has already been submitted for Phase 2. “Starting on site will be the culmination of almost 4 years of design, investigation and planning work” said Daniel Martin, Director of Teakwood Developments. “Working with Envirovent to expand and grow their business has been very rewarding and the support of the York & North Yorkshire Local Enterprise Partnership has also allowed us to accelerate the delivery of the small unit scheme. We already have interest in 2 units totaling 14,000ft2 and hope we can build on this success as the construction progresses.”
York & North Yorkshire Local Enterprise Partnership supported the project with an allocation from the government’s Getting Building Fund. David Dickson, Chair of the York and North Yorkshire Local Enterprise Partnership Infrastructure and Joint Assets Board said: “Harrogate West Business Park will deliver jobs and create a variety of new business opportunities, which is important for our region’s economy as we look to emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic. We were pleased to support infrastructure costs at the site with an allocation from the Getting Building Fund, and we look forward to seeing the continued progress of the development.”
Harrogate Borough Council has been fully supportive of the project with Cllr Phil Ireland, Harrogate Borough Council's cabinet member for carbon reduction and sustainability, commenting: “We are delighted that construction for this scheme is due to start and we welcome the significant investment from EnviroVent, a key local employer in the district. The council fully supports this project and is grateful to the Local Enterprise Partnership for approving the funding support, this investment will provide a boost to the district's economy at a time when it is very much needed as we recover from the Covid pandemic.”
