A new-build office block that Lea Hough has been overseeing has been completed this month, and its new tenant has already taken occupancy! Following a relatively short construction period and office fit-out, also overseen by Lea Hough, Chorley Business & Technology Centre, Euxton, is now the new home to Positive Solutions.
The new office has been developed on behalf of Chorley Business & Technology Centre to facilitate the expansion and growth of one of their existing long-standing tenants (Positive Solutions). CBTC a business park operator and landlord are a longstanding client of Lea Hough’s. The new-build office joins a further 6 existing office units on the site, all of which have been developed over recent years with our assistance.
Lea Hough has been involved in the project right from the start – having been instructed to prepare drawings, and thereafter to obtain planning permission and building regulations approval. Once the construction phase began, our team assumed the project management role – liaising with the construction team, building control, and ensuring the project was completed to specification.
Well-established long term working relationships have been developed to form a highly efficient construction team comprising J Wareing & Sons (Structural Frame & Cladding), MW Contracts (Groundworks), ACE Mechanical Services (Mechanical Services), Cronshaw Facilities Management (Electrical Services), as well as the client’s in-house site team ensure an highly efficient building and fit out process.
Having delivered the construction of the main structure/shell on time and to specification, Positive Solutions instructed the office fit-out phase of the build – turning the shell of the new-build property into a vibrant, modern workspace.
Following relocation of Positive Solution into their new building, Phase 2 of the project can now commence with the demolition of the former building occupied by Positive Solutions (Solutions House), allowing the re-configuration and remodelling of associated external parking areas to meet the demands of this busy and sought-after business park.
Julian Hindle, Managing Director at CBTC, commented:
“This is just the latest in a long line of projects that the Lea Hough team have worked with us on and by now, we’re safe in the knowledge that in their hands, a project will be completed on time and on budget. Lea Hough provide a very professional service and it’s for this reason that we are always happy to re-instruct their services.”
Lea Hough have been involved with several new-build commercial projects across Lancashire over the last 12 – 18 months, acting for lenders, tenants, developers etc. Although our role has varied in each case depending on the client and their specific requirements, the overall objective of our involvement has remained the same – to achieve a quality finish on time and on budget.
