Hillwood and Trebor Developments have today announced they have started work on their 78,458 sq ft industrial “Atomic” development at 31 East, Dinnington, Rotherham alongside contractor MCS Group.
Located 2.50 miles from Junction 31 of the M1, work on site began this month with all parties aiming for completion by year end 2019.
Commenting on the appointment of MCS as well as the development itself, Bob Tattrie, Managing Partner of Trebor Developments commented: “We are delighted to have selected MCS Group Limited as our main contractor and see work proceeding on site. This is the second major construction project we have awarded MCS. The development provides quality industrial accommodation to meet local and regional occupier needs and represents part of our national development pipeline of similar speculative, industrial, developments, delivering in the order of three million square feet over the next 18 months.”
The development of ‘Atomic’ is set to be a significant boost for the local economy, demonstrating confidence in the area and employment opportunities for the residents.
Highlighting the project’s significance, Rotherham Council’s Cabinet Member of Jobs and the Local Economy Cllr Denise Lelliott said: “We know there is a market out there for high-quality commercial property, so this is a very welcome investment. The completed units will be let to inward investors or expanding local companies, which will support business growth in the borough and provide high-value lasting employment for residents.”
MCS Group has previously worked alongside Trebor & Hillwood, for the multi-million pound Trinity Park development in Wiltshire.
Tim Perkins, Group Development Director at MCS Group, said: “We [are] very pleased to be working alongside Trebor Developments on its latest warehouse development. Together, we will be delivering a high quality industrial/logistics unit in a first-class location, which will help to address the needs of the regional market.
“With work on site now underway, we are expecting to make good progress through the summer
and reach practical completion before the end of the year”.
Trebor & Hillwood were advised by agents CBRE (Leeds), CPP (Sheffield) and Knight Frank (Sheffield).
