Four new tenants have taken premises at a new speculatively built business park in Doncaster.
Fabb Projects has relocated into 12,000 sq ft at Bullrush Business Park for its research and development facility while IT support services Transact Technologies Limited has relocated from Edlington using the move to expand into larger premises on site.
Blue Beacon will use its new unit for its food for the elderly distribution service and Land and Mineral Survey Services has taken 3,000 sq ft to expand its professional network.
Developer Carnell Management Services Ltd accessed £1.4m grant funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) to make the Bullrush Business Park development viable and help build 13 new high specification units.
According to agents in the Sheffield office of Knight Frank, demand for the units, aimed at attracting SMEs to the region, has been high with two more units currently under offer, leaving just two units at 4,000 and 12,000 sq ft each available.
The new businesses join Danum Well Services, which took three units at Bullrush Business Park, together with Signet Industrial Distribution Limited, which concluded a 6,000 sq ft unit letting.
Rebecca Schofield, partner at the Sheffield office of Knight Frank which is joint agent alongside Ian Brookes of PPH Commercial on Bullrush Business Park, said: “Interest has been high on this project.
“The lack of available small to medium-sized accommodation in the region meant Carnell Management Services Ltd has capitalised on the development of these quality units.
“We now have a vibrant industrial park populated by smaller to mid-size businesses.”
Paul Carnell, from Carnell Management Services Ltd, said: “We were confident in the Doncaster economy in building these high class, quality industrial units. The development has proved very popular.
“The ERDF was aimed at kick starting projects to strengthen economic and social cohesion targeting SMEs in sectors including advanced manufacturing, creative and digital media, sports technologies, and medical and health. This has happened at Bullrush and the funding proved invaluable in making the build happen.”
Doncaster has undergone a variety of exciting developments taking advantage of its central location from recent key projects such as the Airport, Doncaster Racecourse, Keepmoat Stadium and the Frenchgate Interchange to new projects that are currently under construction such as the Civic and Cultural Quarter.
Bullrush Business Park forms part of the existing First Point Business Park, sited off White Rose Way, just half a mile from Junction 3 of the M18 and has attracted big name industrial, office and retail occupiers including One Call Health, Unipart, DHL, Amazon, B&Q and Morrisons.
