Silverstone Park moves to "next level" as MEPC reveals new 140,000 sq ft speculative development

6 September 2019

MEPC has released details of the next speculative phase of development at its high-tech business estate Silverstone Park, which will include nine new units providing 140,000 sq ft of industrial/workshop premises.

The development follows the success of the most recent speculative industrial scheme, which attracted ten new advanced engineering companies to Silverstone Park.

The latest scheme includes:
• 6 new terraced units (nos. 1140-1145) totalling 55,000 sq ft and ranging in size from 6,000 sq ft to 12,000 sq ft
• 3 detached industrial units (nos. 1502, 1504 and 1506) totalling 85,000 sq ft and ranging in size from 18,000 sq ft to 40,000 sq ft.

The scheme is within the Aylesbury Vale Enterprise Zone meaning that qualifying occupiers can claim business rates relief of up to £55,000 per annum for five years.

All units benefit from MEPC’s investment in new gas to site, 21MVA of power and pure fibre broadband.

The units, built to ‘shell and core’ standard, will include:
• Prominent parking areas
• Smart arrival entrance leading to a reception area with toilets and stairs, in turn leading to first floor offices
• Offices fitted to CAT A standard construction, therefore including raised access floors, floor boxes, lighting and heating/cooling

A new spine road will also be constructed at the same time as the new buildings. This new road will open up remaining land within the Enterprise Zone which is ready for development.

The construction phase is due to start in September 2019 and complete in early summer 2020.

Additionally, MEPC has planning consent and detailed design for a further 120,000 sq ft including four large detached units all in prominent locations along the Dadford Road, opposite the Silverstone Circuit’s Wing building and new five-star Hilton Hotel.

MEPC’s Roz Bird, Commercial Director at Silverstone Park, commented: “We continue to carry out extensive research into the needs and aspirations of companies that need to be located in the Silverstone Technology Cluster and this feeds into our investment strategy and the development of Silverstone Park.

“In the last 36 months many new companies have moved to Silverstone Park, attracted by the world class address, central location to attract talent from Milton Keynes, Northampton, Bicester, Buckingham and surrounding villages and towns, access via the A43 dual carriageway, linking to the M1 and M40, and, most importantly, the sense of community that we have created at Silverstone Park which is providing considerable added value for companies based here.

“This latest development is the first under MEPC’s new outline consent and will take Silverstone Park to the next level in terms of range of units and the number of companies and people joining the Silverstone Park business community.”
