Harris Lamb’s construction consultants were tasked with overseeing the construction of a £ 7.7 million industrial project in Dudley.

The company has been hired by AEW to project management the construction process of a speculative development that includes three sales / industrial units and two terraces of commercial / industrial units in Grazebrook Park on Peartree Lane.

Work on development started last month.

Paul Wells, Head of Harris Lamb’s Construction Advisory Team, said, “This speculative planning and construction program is being carried out for AEW to address the well-documented industrial inventory shortage in the area and will provide a much needed, highly specific commercial program to the Heart the midlands.

“We are entrusted with the project management of this development from the first feasibility and planning phase to the supervision of the contract phase. Over the next eight months, we will be working closely with construction company A&H Construction to complete a series of warehouses on three lots in the Peartree Lane location for a number of users.

“The first lot will consist of two units, 28,632 sq ft or Block 1A will have three level access doors and 38 parking spaces, while Block 1B will have two level access doors and 19 parking spaces.

“The warehouses include offices on the first floor, a 30 m long service area and a floor load of 50 kN / m2.

“The second property is occupied by a 39,224 m² distribution center with two loading doors on dock level, two loading doors on two levels, a 10 m long eaves, a 40 m long secure service area, offices on the first floor and 69 own parking spaces.

“The final aspect of the development will be five smaller units spread over two terraces, with a total floor area of ​​18,932 sq ft. The units will be finished to a shell standard with a service entry point and an eaves of at least 6.6 m height, a three-phase power supply, 50 kN per m2 of floor load and 34 parking spaces as well as integrated office space, ”he said.

All locations will include dedicated charging stations for electric vehicles.

Marketing the program, Charles D’Ancey, Harris Lamb Sales Representative Team leader said, “This is a very welcome development for the region. There has been a shortage of industrial stocks across the Black Land for a number of years, and this highly specified program will address this.

“Grazebrook Park is a safe, well-run property in an established industrial area with excellent connections to the Midlands and the motorway network. With this system, which offers commercial counters in a prominent position in the front area of ​​the park as well as larger units for production and storage, this will be an important contribution to covering the pent-up demand in the region.

“We expect a rapid acceptance of the buildings, which are available under leasehold at negotiable conditions.”

The work is expected to be completed in May 2022.
