Contractor named for Gateway 12 work
A contractor has been appointed by developer St Modwen for a £2.9m project at the 16-acre Gateway 12 development on Waterwells Business Park in Gloucestershire.
Following recent planning consent, St Modwen has handed the contract to Barnwood Construction. Work will start on the first of two new buildings this year.
Scheduled to complete next summer, this first unit will provide 40,942 sq ft of warehouse and industrial space. The development will also include a new site access road and preliminary ground work in anticipation of start of work on a second unit.
Pete Davies, senior development manager for St Modwen, the land owner and developer of Gateway 12, said: "Our £22m Gateway 12 development at Waterwells Business Park is one of four sites being developed by St Modwen in Gloucestershire.
"It sits alongside our £150m mixed-use Littlecome scheme in Dursley; our Quedgeley East Business park off junction 12 of the M5 and neighbouring Quedgeley West Business Park, which is scheduled to complete this December, when the final unit available for purchase or rent is finished."
Property consultancies Ash & Co and Alder King are joint agents on the scheme.
