Planning permission has been approved for 35 business units at Exeter’s SkyPark Development.
Burrington Estates purchased the site at SkyPark in August, 2020, with a commitment to deliver high-quality new business units in Exeter.
The units will be built to the BREEAM ‘Excellent’ benchmark and provide flexible spaces from 1,000 sq ft with the option of half or full-mezzanine floor.
Burrington Estates Commercial Managing Director, Matthew Bennett, says: “We are delighted to get the go ahead for this development allowing us to provide superior options for start-ups and small to medium businesses looking to expand.
“We are also proud that Burrington has a presence at SkyPark, the flagship business park development in the South West.”
In line with SkyPark’s highly sustainable aims, particularly with using renewable energy and energy efficiency goals, Burrington Estates will include solar PV and EV charging points, insulated panel technology to reduce operational costs and covered bicycle storage to encourage sustainable transport.
With an impressive show of positivity and optimism from the business community, 90 percent of units have already been reserved. Burrington Estates will have two further phases of varying unit sizes for delivery in 2022.
Development Manager Charles Berry, who had taken the lead on the project, adds: “To attract such a strong demand from SMEs for the business units underlines the need for this type of high specification, sustainable development in the South West.
“Alongside superb quality, businesses are clearly also looking for premises that focus on sustainability and flexibility.”
Providing new employment opportunities in the area, construction of the units is due to commence in February 2021 with completion anticipated in August 2021.
