Castlehouse has started work on a new £8m light industrial scheme which is expected to be home to about 130 jobs.  The project which is registered under Considerate Constructors and aims to achieve BREEAM Very Good is being built for estate owner, Patrizia Hanover Property Unit Trust, as the latest phase of the Ash Way development.

Free electricity for business tenants will be provided through solar photovoltaic panels fitted as standard to the new units, which will be operationally carbon net zero.

The scheme will feature seven-metre-eave warehouses, up-and-over loading doors, heated offices, PIR operated LED lighting, loading yards and full fibre to the premises (FFTP), using Thorp Arch Estate’s superfast broadband.

Ash Way IV will become the base for around 130 jobs and will comprise three units of 4,000 sq ft; two of 6,000 sq ft, and one each of 10,000 sq ft, 13,000 sq ft, 15,000 sq ft and 31,527 sq ft.
