Our FAST-GROWING East Yorkshire construction company has moved into the last available office at a popular business park in the region.
Cambridge Construction, which specialises in civil engineering and commercial and industrial construction, has taken a 900sq ft office unit at Green Park Business Park at Newport.
The three-year deal means all existing office units of the first phase at Green Park are now occupied, but further offices will become available in the future, with more of the site to be developed.
The firm joins several growing businesses on the park, including public relations agency The PR Company, road surfacing specialist Scientific Roads, JD Garage Equipment and park owner and developer, the Horncastle Group PLC.
Louis Bradley, construction director at Cambridge Construction, said there were a number of drivers for the move, but chief among them was the proximity to their parent company, horticultural engineering experts Cambridge HOK.
Cambridge HOK is based on Wallingfen Park, Main Road, Newport, just a stone’s throw from Green Park Business Park.
Mr Bradley said: “Cambridge Construction started life as a civils company, carrying out site preparation and infrastructure work for Cambridge HOK, but, since then, we have branched out and started working directly for third parties.
“Despite being a fairly young company, we’re already involved in some prestigious projects and we have ambitious plans to double our turnover this year.
“Along with this comes recruitment, which means we would have soon grown out of our old base. Green Park Business Park was by far the most obvious solution.
“Not only does the office give us ample space to grow, it is just across the road from our parent company, so couldn’t be better located.”
Mr Bradley added that other factors had also made the deal attractive.
“Horncastle were very good to deal with,” he said. “They were flexible with the lease and with the interior of the office, setting it up to meet our needs.
“It was an easy deal to do, which is exactly what we wanted when we’re so focused on growth. It meant everything fell into place quickly, minimising the disruption to our operations team.”
Ian Hodges, managing director of the Horncastle Group PLC, said: “As a young and ambitious company, Cambridge Construction is a fantastic fit for Green Park Business Park, so we’re delighted that it has taken the last available office. I hope they will be very happy here and realise their ambitious plans for growth.
“However, with plenty of the site left to develop, I would encourage anyone with office, industrial or warehousing requirement in East Yorkshire to come and speak to us. There is still ample, opportunity to be part of Green Park’s on going success story.”
