Carnell Management Services (CMS) has completed work on a new £6.6m speculative business park in Barnsley.
Developer and long term investor CMS has delivered 15 high quality units for B1, B2 and B8 use at the Nexus industrial development on the flourishing Capitol Park.
Representatives gathered at the development, which has been built with the help of £2.20m loan from the Sheffield City Region JESSICA Fund, to mark practical completion of the site including investor CMS owner Paul Carnell, Martyn Carnell, joint agents Knight Frank and Smiths Chartered Surveyors and Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council’s Enterprising Barnsley.
Paul Carnell from Carnell Management Services Ltd said: “Small to medium sized units like these are so desperately needed in the region. Our investment and commitment to the region means we can offer a relevant, quality product and we are confident Nexus will attract occupiers due to its high specifications and location. Thank you to Barnsley MBC and Enterprising Barnsley for their support on this project.”
Shaun Higginbottom from Enterprising Barnsley said: “It’s great to see the project completion at Nexus. We are keen to see businesses thrive in Barnsley and major developments like these attract companies, create high quality jobs which mean a further boost to our local economy.”
Nexus’ units feature impressive facades, full height roller shutter loading doors, LED lighting to the warehouse, fitted offices with WCs, shower and kitchen facility and good sized loading areas with dedicated yards to the large units.
The site also benefits from on site CCTV, availability of superfast broadband connectivity and electric car charging points, all set within a landscaped business park environment.
Rebecca Schofield, partner at the Sheffield office of Knight Frank which is marketing the scheme, said: “These high quality industrial and warehouse units range in size from 3,000 to 11,800 sq ft. We already have good levels of interest in the units from potential occupiers.”
Joint agent Andrew Corbett of Smiths Chartered Surveyors said: “The location of the scheme and high quality construction will make Nexus highly sought after.”
Capitol Park, Barnsley sits adjacent to J37 M1 and two miles from Barnsley town centre, and has proved popular with a mixture of office and industrial occupiers including Sheffield Children’s Hospital, Gem Imports and NHS.
