Phase 2 Promises Eco Development at Buckingway Business Park in Swavesey

On behalf of Barwood Capital and Goya Developments, joint agents Cheffins and Bidwells are marketing a brand new phase of speculative development at Buckingway Business Park, Swavesey.

Phase 2, which will complete the business park, will comprise four large, high quality warehouse buildings ranging in size from 25,000 sq ft to 50,000 sq ft. There’s a shortage of modern industrial stock in the region and Goya aims to meet that pent-up demand with its Phase 2 offer.

“Located at Junction 28 of the A14 and just seven miles from Cambridge, Buckingway has become a very successful strategic location for industrial and warehousing businesses, and it’s already home to high profile occupiers, including Balfour Beatty and Gladwins. Phase 2 will be a genuinely unique offer in the region, with a number of innovative energy-saving and eco features in the scheme that will help occupiers reduce both their carbon footprint and their occupational costs,” explains Philip Woolner, Director of Cheffins’ commercial team.

“Along with photovoltaic panels and solar walls to generate heat and energy savings, these buildings will have motion sensitive lighting and energy monitors to help reduce energy use. Goya estimates that the buildings have the potential both to cut energy bills for occupiers and could offer a 20% reduction in energy used to units built as recently as 2013.”

The high spec warehouses will have high eaves of 8-10 metres, plus a warehouse floor loading of up to 50 kN/m2. The buildings will have electric roller shutter doors, with fully carpeted and heated offices and smart, attractive entrance lobbies which are in line with current office HQ’s. To encourage ‘green’ commuting, all buildings will have bike shelters and an electric car charging point. Each building will have dedicated yard space of to 40m and plentiful car parking.

Across the A14 from Buckingway Business Park is the Cambridge Service Area, which offers a wide range of amenities for staff, including M&S Simply Food, Costa Coffee, Le Petit Four Francais, KFC and McDonald’s.

Buildings in Phase 2 are available both freehold and leasehold. For full details, contact Philip Woolner on 01223 213666, philip.woolner@cheffins.co.uk.
